The wait time for getting an allocation of Kosta Browne 4 Barrel Pinot Noir is 12 years. 12 years for just 3 bottles of wine! Crazy– but I understand. Few wines made in America are more sought after than Kosta Browne; a winery that has a knack for making sexy, hedonistic Pinot that is almost impossible not to love at first sip.
It’s also really hard to get– forget the 4 Barrel Pinot, I am talking about just their basic appellation wines.
The Cerise Vineyard bottling comes from the famous former vineyard of Saintsbury and is clearly thriving at all time highs (as evident by their big 97-point score). It’s a big and powerful PN loaded with black cherry, cola baking spice, and earthy notes with a vibrancy that shines throughout. It’s pure and silky with a long-lasting finish. It’s an ethereal and super age-worthy Pinot.

Another sensational appellation release is the 2014 Pinot Noir Santa Lucia Highlands. Coming from an early vintage that was over two weeks ahead of average, it has tons of spice, black raspberry, currants and blackberry characteristics, medium to full-bodied richness, a great texture and no shortage of depth or length. Already impossible to resist, drink it anytime over the coming 7-8 years.

Like walking through a rose garden, this offers exotic, perfumed scents. Starts out elegant and understated but gains depth and complexity, fanning out with black licorice, dusty earth and dried herb flavors that highlight the zesty raspberry fruit.
