Kosta Browne Chardonnay Bootlegger's Hill Russian River Valley 2017  - First Bottle


97 James Suckling -
This cooler site delivers a very powerful style with a ripe array of yellow citrus fruit, white peaches and nectarines, as well as baking spices and nougat. The palate has such intensity and succulent fruit and delivers mouthwatering dryness on the finish. The zesty, enlivened finish is phenomenal. Drink or hold.
94 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate -
Aged 19 months in 70% new, mostly Austrian oak, the 2017 Chardonnay Bootlegger's Hill has an inviting nose of honeycomb, baked quince, candied peaches, lilac and roasted hazelnuts with accents of dried hay, stone, pastry crust, baked apples and a classy framing of new oak spices. It's medium to full-bodied, rounded and silky in texture with intense flavor layers split between tangy acidity and savory honey-nut character, finishing very long. This is beautiful! 225 cases produced, to be released in the summer of 2020.

About the Producer

Truly great wines are born in the vineyard. Over the years, Kosta Browne made it their business to find incredible growers and vineyards in key appellations throughout California. Every vintage a story is told of these chosen vineyards through the medium of wine. Their efforts reflect the character in some way, of every person and every vineyard site; the shared experiences of that year. Kosta Browne's appellation blends are inspired by a desire to capture the specific beauty of each of these growing regions. Kosta Browne produces three appellation Pinot Noirs - Russian River Valley, Sonoma Coast and Santa Lucia Highlands, and one Chardonnay from the Russian River Valley.
