Made from the top four barrels in the winery, the 2013 Pinot Noir 4 Barrel gives up the darker, richer fruit profile that is common from this estate to go with beautiful notes of caramelized black cherries, spice, vanilla bean and rose petal. Medium to full-bodied, seamless and surprisingly elegant (this cuvee is normally more of a bruiser), it still has a touch of oak to integrate, so give it a year or two in the cellar. (JD)
There is a definite and indelible Kosta Browne stamp at work in most all of the winery's many Pinots, but that does not mean that they are all the same, and it does not demand strenuous thinking to see the clear differences. While the 4-Barrel bottling is ripe and well-filled, it is also among the sleeker, more firmly structured of the bunch, and it juxtaposes richness and exemplary, enlivening acidity with a marvelous sense of finesse. It trades far less on power than it does on refinement, and its long-term future is as bright as can be. *Two Stars*
The 2013 Pinot Noir Four Barrel is rich, dense and voluptuous, with layered expression of fruit and considerable intensity. Lavender, violets, smoke and licorice are some of the many aromas and flavors that add nuance, but above all else, the Four Barrel is made to highlight textural richness and opulence, which it certainly does quite well. For my taste, I prefer some of the more vibrant wines in the range, but the Four Barrel is unquestionably pretty. (AG)
Combines pure, ripe plum and raspberry fruit with touches of fresh earth, anise and lavender, graced by the right mix of acidity and tannins. Tightens on the finish in a good way, with the tannins giving the flavors traction. (JL)
