New Releases

 

2012 Kosta Browne One Sixteen Chardonnay 750ml - 12 avail at $85.00 ea

Aromatics:This wine expresses beautiful aromas layered in green apple, lemon-lime citrus, orange blossom, honeysuckle and toasty tangerine.

On the palate: Our One Sixteen Chardonnay exhibits lush lemon lime and tangerine citrus. The flavors are succulent, fresh and lively on the palate, with a supple vanillin crème brûlée texture. The finish gradually turns crisp with a final wash of mouthwatering natural acidity.

 

2012 Kosta Browne Russian River Pinot Noir 750ml - 18 avail at $95.00 ea

Aromatics:This beautifully complex wine shows layered aromas of rich, warm fennel and sage spices mingled with the red and dark fresh fruit components of red raspberry, crushed ripe black cherries and hint of rose petal. 

On the palate:This Russian River Valley Pinot Noir is pure, balanced, lush and focused. Rich chocolate covered cherries come to the front, while fresh ripe raspberries, pomegranate and cola develop throughout the palate, all resting generously on the top of the tongue. The lingering finish wraps around your palate with focus and freshness.

 

2012 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir 750ml - 18 avail at $95.00 ea 

Aromatics:The wine shows focused blueberry, black cherry and ripe currants in the nose, followed by intense blackberry and cassis. In the background there is a dusting of cocoa and black plum.

On the palate:The 2012 Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir exhibits dark black and blue fruits that drive down the center of the palate and slowly melt into all areas of the mouth. There is focused acidity and a tannic grip that carries the rich dark fruit character towards the midpalate, followed by creamy black cherry, dark plum and dried currants. There is intensity to this wine that is followed by a slow release of complex flavors and textures, leading to a long and lingering finish.

 

2012 Kosta Browne Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir 750ml - 12 avail at $95.00 ea

Aromatics:This wine displays deep notes of orange peel, cherries, and five-spice and is supported by hints of ginger, strawberry and rhubarb.

On the palate:Our Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir is a luscious mouth-filling wine. It is deeply structured with supple tannins centered in the mid-palate. A sweet and sour mix of red and black fruits, such as penetrating red cherry and blackberry dominate, ending in a clean strawberry and dark cherry finish.
