2012 Kosta Browne "Koplen Vineyard" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1186589 95 points Connoisseurs Guide

Outer quote mark We are more than impressed by the new Kosta Browne line-up, and picking favorites from so many good wines is a difficult, if happy, task. That said this bottle is so well-balanced and generously endowed with definitive varietal fruit that it vies for a place at the head of class. Its themes of optimally ripened cherries are enriched with very sensible sweet oak, and it shows a slight bit of structural sinew under its ample flesh, but it is never heavy or in any way tough, and its future is as sure as a sure thing can be. *Three Stars* Inner quote mark (7/2014)

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2012 Pinot Noir Koplen Vineyard has an edgy, vibrant feel with its plum and sweet black cherry fruits, charred spices and licorice giving way to hints of spring flowers and mint. (JD) Inner quote mark (10/2014)

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar

Outer quote mark Deep ruby. Brooding aromas of blackberry, licorice and smoky Indian spices. Sweet and broad on entry, then penetrating, sappy and focused in the mid-palate, with deep blackberry and mineral flavors becoming livelier with air. Finishes with a strong youthfully tannic spine and very good energy and length. Definitely give this one more time in bottle. (ST) Inner quote mark (5/2014)

91 points Vinous

Outer quote mark Sweet tobacco, mint, crushed flowers and red cherries are all laced together in the 2012 Pinot Noir Koplen Vineyard. The inclusion of 20% whole clusters give the wine an attractive sense of brightness that is felt in both the expressive aromatics and saline notes that underpin the fruit. (AG) Inner quote mark (1/2015)
