Kosta Browne Koplen Vineyard Pinot Noir 2009
|Appellation||Russian River Valley|
Wine SpectatorFirm, tight and somewhat closed, but with a wealth of flavor built around ripe plum, black cherry and blueberry. Juicy and full-bodied, showing a nice tannic backbone on the finish. Drink now through 2019.
Wine AdvocateThe 2009 Pinot Noir Koplen Vineyard is gorgeous. Black cherries, menthol, spices, violets wrap around the palate in this sensual, alluring wine. Here the aromas and flavors tend towards the dark, sepia-toned end of the spectrum. The Koplen is layered, complete and totally beautiful. There is an element of gravitas that is particularly appealing. The Koplen was partially vinified in wood uprights, with 18% whole clusters. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2017.
