Kosta Browne Kanzler Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009
Wine SpectatorRipe, rich, plump, concentrated and full-bodied, with a tight mix of mineral, raspberry and spice flavors. Gains a plum and berry pie edge while remaining firm and structured, dense and concentrated. Drink now through 2018.
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Pinot Noir Kanzler Vineyard emerges from the glass with black cherries, mint, flowers, licorice and tar. It shows plenty of depth and concentration, if not quite the textural finesse of tannin as some of the other 2009s. A soft, lush finish rounds things out. The Kanzler was made with 10-15% whole clusters. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
