2017 Kosta Browne "Bootlegger's Hill" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

SKU #1513774 96 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark This is a cooler and later-ripening site, planted to an array of clones. Dried flowers and forest-wood aromas with leafy and sappy notes lead to a palate that has ripeness and lighter fruit flavors. Nicely detailed and very silky tannins and latent, rich blue-fruit flavors. Inner quote mark (9/2019)

Outer quote mark Brought up in 45% new French oak, the 2017 Pinot Noir Bootlegger's Hill Vineyard reveals a medium ruby/translucent color as well as a complex bouquet of redcurrants, leafy herbs, damp earth, iodine, and spice. Medium to full-bodied, with an elegant texture, lots of classic Russian River spice, and outstanding length. it shows the more elegant streamlined style of the vintage, yet I suspect it's going to age gracefully. Give bottles 2-3 years and it should keep for a decade. (KM) Inner quote mark (5/2020)

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark The 2017 Pinot Noir Bootlegger's Hill was aged in several vessels: 31% new French oak, 19% wooden tanks, 20% concrete and 3% Austrian oak, from 10 to 16 months. Pale to medium ruby, it gives up friendly aromas of strawberry and raspberry jam, tangerine, tree bark and mushroom plus nuances of peppercorn, charcuterie and aniseed. Medium-bodied, it's earth-driven in the mouth with a sturdy framing of ripe tannins and just enough freshness on the long finish. This needs more time to come together in bottle. (EB) Inner quote mark (12/2019)

91 points Wine Spectator

Outer quote mark Crushed mineral notes flank the zesty raspberry and red fruit flavors. The juicy finish features lively acidity and light spicy accents. (KM) Inner quote mark (10/2020)
