Gary V brings the "Thunder!" with Kosta Browne
If you haven't seen Gary Vaynerchuk on Wine Library TV you need to give his video-blogging a look. As he says he only knows two ways to taste - from his hip and his heart. He shoots from his hip and he comes from his heart. He is a little OTT but compared to the overly serious tasting notes you usually see, he is a breath of fresh air. His wine vocabulary is unique. He describes the second wine in this videocast as "stinky sock meets green pepper meets dirt with a chocolate bar on top left by a camp fire". Nice!
He tastes the 2003 and 2004 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coasts in this episode. As I mentioned earlier the 2003 Kosta Browne Sonoma Coast was the bottle that made me want to become a winemaker and will always have a special place in my heart but as Gary points out the 2004 version is a to-die-for wine.
I can't wait to start working with Michael Browne next week!
