2010 Kosta Browne Gaps Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir

The 2010 Kosta Browne Gaps Crown Vineyard Pinot Noir 750ml is from the Petaluma Gap region of California. Kosta Browne is known for their intensely-flavored and balanced wines from the Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast and Santa Lucia Highlands appellations. Founders Dan Kosta, Michael Browne and Chris Costello have watched their hard work pay off, rising from (essentially) garagistes in 1997 to one of the most sought-after pinot noirs from California. In fact, I recently read that the current wine club membership is maxed out at around 12,000 members and there are currently over 15,000 on the waitlist! Their 2009 Sonoma Coast received Wine Spectator’s Wine of the Year award. If you love big pinots and chardonnays, then this is definitely the wine for you.

The 2010 Pinot Noir Gap’s Crown is a smoking effort that has both aromatic complexity and richness and depth on the palate. Offering up a slightly savory, exotic profile of darker berry fruit, ground herbs, olive, spiced meats and forest floor, it hits the palate with medium to full-bodied richness, a core of sweet fruit and an all-round mouth filling, layered and concentrated profile. It took an hour to open up, so decant if drinking anytime soon. - Jeb Dannuck (10/2014)

Another highlight, the 2010 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown Vineyard is one of the most vivid, totally alive wines in this lineup. There is a lot going on in the glass, starting with beautifully delineated aromatics, great definition in the fruit and a long, creamy finish. Now that Kosta-Browne investor Bill Price has also purchased Gaps Crown, this site becomes an estate vineyard for the winery. All the elements are in place for the 2010 to develop beautifully in bottle, but I will not be surprised if future vintages are even better.- Antonio Galloni (07/2013)
