Delicious. Dense. Rich berry. Strawberry and raspberry peeking through.

Relatively restrained--some blue fruit, tannin and acid in a pretty good balance. Pretty dense and compact now and still obviously young. My guess is it will improve over the next few years.

Want some honesty? I love Kosta Browne. And I love Gap's Crown vineyard. But the '13 KB Gap's Crown may be the worst KB Pinot ever. Ever! My 3rd time having this wine and they are all immensely disappointing.

Plenty of power and will need some time to soften out and come together. #kostabrowne #pinotnoir #sonomacoast #california #gapscrown #california #ctbucklinwine

Let me start off by saying that I love Kosta Browne Pinots. World class producer. But the '13 Gap's Crown is not their best effort. It's a fine Pinot, but not up to the single vineyard KB standard. Blueberry and cherry finish. Almost like a blueberry muffin. The finish does linger, but not a ton of depth, substance.
