Kosta Browne is the most sought after name in domestic Pinot Noir, and the brand burst into the spotlight when their 2009 vintage ranked as the Wine Spectator #1 Wine back in 2011.  The wines immediately became nearly impossible to acquire, and now 8 successful vintages later and they’re still hard to find. In fact, it’s rare for us to feature them in our emails, and that’s simply because there’s seldom enough wine to match demand, and this offer may sell out quickly.

Kosta Browne’s 2017 Russian River Pinot is a cuvée style Pinot Noir with vast complexity, that was comprised of more than a dozen renowned vineyard sites including, Bootlegger’s Hill, Treehouse, Zio Tony, Moonshine, Laguna Valdez, Jenkins, Koplen, Keefer, and the list goes on…

I’d grab your case now before reading more below… because Kosta Browne Pinots below $100 never last long…  cheers!

(sorry – this one sold-out in less than 2-hours)

Adding even more layers of complexity, the 2017 was formed from ten iconic Pinot Noir clones, spanning 777, to Pommard 4, Swan and Calera.  It didn’t stop there either, the winemaking team fermented in multiple styles including Stainless Steel, Concrete, and wood, and for added depth and structure, they utilized 3% whole cluster fermentation in the process.


From Jeb Dunnuck, “The 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley comes from a multitude of sites and spent 17 months in 45% new French oak. It’s slightly more reticent than the Sonoma Coast and offers more raspberry, ripe cherries, cola, mulled spiced, and earth. Rounded, beautifully textured, and medium to full-bodied, it has a supple, seamless style that’s already a joy to drink. Nevertheless, I suspect it will keep for upwards of a decade.” JEB DUNNUCK 94 POINTS

From Robert Parker’s WINE ADVOCATE, “… the pale to medium ruby colored 2017 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley opens with broody aromas of spiced cranberry sauce, crushed black cherries, loam, cumin seeds, dried leaves and a classy framing of new oak spice with notions of orange peel and amaro. It’s medium-bodied and silky, offering plush, ripe fruits in the mouth, with a grainy frame and mouthwatering freshness, finishing very long. This is a tick up in complexity from the 2016 version…” WINE ADVOCATE 93 POINTS
