The 2015 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.

Wine Spectator 90 points

Rich and spicy, with a dense core of extracted dark berry, mocha, spice, cedary oak and loamy earth notes. Packs a lot of flavor into a style that will benefit from short-term cellaring. Drink now through 2023.-JL

Vinous (Stephen Tanzer) 93 points

Dark, succulent and inviting. The biggest and most powerful of the Sonoma Coast Pinots, the 2015 Pinot Noir Gap's Crown is ample and voluptuous, but it will also need time to be at its best. There is no shortage of drive to the red cherry, spice and lavender flavors that infuse this deeply expressive Pinot. This is the first vintage the winemaking team gave the Gap's Crown a few added months in barrel, a decision that appears to have been spot on.-AG
