Pop n pour and fruit bomb on steroids and I feel like the Dr Pepper guy who says "the sweet one" - except my voice can't get that high - smiles galore tonight

Medium translucent ruby in color. Aromas of raspberry, root beer, cinnamon, caramel, and crème brûlée. Concentrated on the palate but with good acidity and flavors of raspberries and licorice leading to a long finish featuring fine grained tannins. Made with only 2% whole clusters then aged 15 months in 44% new French oak. Typical Russian River Valley fruit done up in Kosta Browne style. 14.3% ABV.

Good but too dense and chocolaty for a Pinot Noir

A potpourri of red fruit (cherries, pomegranate, raspberry) with floral notes.

Founders Dan Kosta, Michael Browne and Chris Costello's dedication to quality and commitment has propelled the brand to industry leader, producing some of the most sought-after new world Pinot Noirs. Deep Ruby with aromas of red fruits and floral spice. On the palate cherry and sweet raspberry with toasty notes and cinnamon spice. This wine spent time on French oak (44% new). Full-bodied, elegant textured tannins on a lingering finish. Has room to improve. Tasting Samples.

A bigger Pinot with dark red and black berries with a hint of vanilla cola. Perfect wine to start off Thanksgiving

The 2014 Russian River Kosta Browne is my favorite RRV from them in years (I usually prefer the Sonoma Coast). Just a pleasant wine all around. Light and mellow, as Pinot should be. But spicy. Vibrant fruit.

Wonderful in its youth for about two glasses. With too much air, it began to fall apart. Also, maybe the finest tannins I've ever encountered. Fun stuff
