Good but too dense and chocolaty for a Pinot Noir

Awesome Pinot from 2014 Santa Lucia Highlands of Kosta Browne. Beautiful fruit of Black cherry and plum . Awesome mid palate with great acidity and body. Wonderful mouthfeel. Compliments the finisher of Labor Day 2016 and #Hermine weather 2016! With Master chef K Beatty! Bravo on food and wines!!! CB 95...

2014 Single Vineyard Kosta Browne. Rather easy drinking. Good stuff, though for '14s, I prefer their standard RRV

Another new release by Kosta Browne. I'd rate this one (Santa Lucia Highlands) somewhere between the '14 Sonoma Coast and Russian River Valley (my favorite)

Cherries, earthy like fertilizer, heavy body great example of SLH potential.

2014 on Feb 2, 2017 after a 1 hour decant. Strawberry fruit, delicate earthy finish.

I recently went to a Private Equity Wine Tasting Gala and they had 8 Kosta Browne wine to taste, Wow! Hard to pick a best as they were all good, but the Santa Lucia Highlands 2014 stood out. Aged for 15 months in French Oak (49% new), with aromas of dried red fruits, tangy citrus and floral notes. On the palate raspberry and cherry flavors with interesting spice and savory dusty tannins. The finish is long, ending with earthy mineral characteristics. Tasting Sample.
