$99.99

We’ve all heard the term Cult Wine, and Merriam-Webster defines Cult as a great devotion. Kosta Browne became a Cult wine when their 2009 vintage ranked as the Wine Spectator #1 wine back in 2011, and the wines immediately became nearly impossible to acquire. Fast-forward nine successful vintages, and they’re still really hard to find, but that’s where we can help…

Kosta Browne produces wine in a highly captivating style that highlights Pinot Noirs’ vast complexity, charm, and character. They source their appellation wines from a matrix of A-list Vineyards, and the variety of terroirs and clones emphasize the very hallmarks that made the brand so revered.

2018 KOSTA BROWNE SANTA RITA HILLS PINOT NOIR

2018 was an idyllic vintage from start to finish, and Kosta Browne wrote that it was “one of the finest growing seasons of the past decade.” Simply put, Pinot Noir and Chardonnay fans have a lot to be thankful for with these 2018 releases.

JD95 | Jeb Dunnuck Tasting Notes: “The 2018 Pinot Noir Sta. Rita Hills was 90% destemmed and brought up in mostly neutral oak (French and Austrian). Its ruby/purple hue is followed by a beautiful bouquet of ripe strawberry and raspberry fruits interwoven with plenty of spice, flowery incense, and violet nuances. Ethereal, medium-bodied, and elegant on the palate, it has a terrific sense of balance, integrated acidity, and a great finish. It’s not a blockbuster Pinot by any measure yet has complexity, balance, and length. I’m a big fan.” JEB DUNNUCK 95 POINTS

Kosta Browne Russian Santa Rita Hills 2018 Winery Notes: “Bright fruits highlighted by fresh strawberry, red cherry, and cranberry, accentuated by fresh basil and a hint of pot de crème. Focused, linear entry, with a subtle yet excellent tension”
