2018 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1466348 95 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark The 2018 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley was mostly destemmed and brought up in 31% new French oak. Its ruby/purple hue is followed by a wonderful bouquet of black cherries, darker raspberry, spice, and hints of earth and forest floor. It's a darker, spicy Russian River Valley effort that's medium to full-bodied and has terrific balance, ripe tannins, and a great finish. It shows the purity and class that now defines this estate. It's well worth seeking out and is going to keep for at least a decade. Inner quote mark

Outer quote mark Sites along the lines of Zio Tony, Silver Eagle, Jenkins, Keefer, Treehouse and more contribute the rich reward of the appellation, opening with juicy earthy delicate fruit. The black cherry and raspberry are spice-laden and peppery in cola, with length and breadth on the palate. (VB) Inner quote mark (12/2020)
