Description2016 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir, Sonoma County, USA
ROBERT PARKERThe 2016 Pinot Noir Russian River Valley was aged partly for 15 months in 47% new French oak, partly for ten months in 5% concrete tank. It has a pale to medium ruby color and very inviting nose: pomegranate, cranberry jelly, violet, orange peel and red cherry candy are accented with nuances of dried leaves and a light framing of spices. It's medium-bodied, silky and offers great restraint—very intense but not over the top—with a soft, grainy frame and juicy acidity to lift the long, red berry finish.
VINOUS (ANTONIO GALLONI)Kosta Browne's 2016 Pinot Noir (Russian River Valley) is soft, fruity and pliant. Like all of the appellation level wines, the Russian River Pinot is decidedly laid back. Perhaps I caught the 2016 on a bad day, but the fruit is not especially expressive today, nor do I see the raciness that is the single most distinctive attribute of Russian River Pinots.
