2016 Kosta Browne "Kanzler Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

SKU #1419228 97 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark Another head turner is the 2016 Pinot Noir Kanzler Vineyard, which saw a tiny amount of stems and aging in 40% new French oak. Loads of spice, black raspberries, wild strawberries, and earthy, forest floor characteristics, medium to full body, a voluptuous, yet weightless texture, and an awesome finish all define this heavenly Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir. As with all these releases from Kosta Browne, it’s going to benefit from a year or two in bottle and cruise for a decade. Inner quote mark (6/2018)

97 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark The purity to this wine is very impressive with dried strawberries, floral notes and crushed stones. Some watermelon. Full-bodied, dense and layered with dark fruits that pop out of the glass. Deep and wonderful. Inner quote mark (12/2018)

95 points Wine Enthusiast

Outer quote mark From this perennially impressive site is this stunning vineyard-designate, earthy in a wealthy array of cola, clove, nutmeg and orange peel. Soft, succulent and layered, it dazzles in fresh, focused black cherry and tart shocks of pomegranate. Black tea finishes things off within a balanced body of full flavor and structured complexity. (VB) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

93 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2016 Pinot Noir Kanzler is one of the more successful wines in this range, as it has more than enough depth and freshness to work with the more restrained style that is now in vogue at Kosta Browne. In this range, the Kanzler stands out for its textural depth and resonance. (AG) Inner quote mark (7/2018)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark Aged 16 months in 39% new French oak, the medium ruby colored 2016 Pinot Noir Kanzler Vineyard opens with touches of tar and gunflint that give way to aromas of crushed blackberries, black tea leaves, cumin seed, turned earth and red berries in the undercurrent with a cola hint. The palate is light-bodied and restrained, with meaty and earthy notions and a firm frame, finishing lifted with bright acidity. (EB) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

92 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Fresh, snappy and vibrant, with spicy wild berry, cherry, plum, crushed rock and loamy earth notes, firming nicely. (JL) Inner quote mark (9/2018)
