Kosta Browne wines are some of the most sought after Pinots in California. They are also wines that people tend to love or hate because they are to the ripe and jammy side of Pinot Noir. Its always fun to drink one and listen to the comments. This is deep ruby in color. The nose has bright black cherries with some baking spice. With air, some root beer and Faygo Red Pop notes. On the palate, there is a lot of cherry, black cherry notes along with a bit of cola. It is big and fruity and also delicious. Would work with bigger foods and most traditional Pinot foods (salmon, etc.). Long finish. This is the kind of cocktail Pinot that many people would love. I think with another ten years though, it will age just fine and settle down to a more earthy style. Time will tell.
