Can't read the whole e-mail? What will you miss?
Dan Kosta of Kosta Browne (here) owned Pinot Noir, 100% Single Vineyard from Campbell Ranch, for $24.99.
Ok so tell me more!
2nd Place by only a couple of votes in the Belle Glos blind tasting was 2020 T. Solomon Wellborn Campbell Ranch Vineyard Pinot Noir.
But today I am actually able to tell you where this juice came from, and it makes this final $24.99 sale all the more special....
You read that correctly - this is the final time this wine will be at $24.99, as this wine is running out.
Sooooooooo.......where did it come from?
Well, would you be interested in Pinot Noir from the people originally behind Kosta Browne at 65% off?
On August 23rd of last year, a winemaker we have worked with in CA for many years sent us the sample in the pictures below. He told us it was 100% Pinot Noir, but other than that we had no idea what these notations on the bottle meant.
So we tasted the wine. It was good. Like really, really, really, good. Like I actually ended up drinking the entire sample bottle good (not by myself of course 😂).
The winemaker of course went into this explanation of how he could not provide us with the source of the juice, he didn’t want to violate his NDA, etc. etc. etc. and then told us the price.
So it turns out that cryptic message on the bottle "2020-ALD-PNCB” stood for "2020 AldenAlli Pinot Noir Campbell Ranch”…no wonder it was so good.
If you are not familiar with AldenAlli it was a new Pinot Noir project from Dan Kosta of Kosta Browne fame. Dan Kosta and Michael Browne may be the most successful Pinot Noir entrepreneurs in the United States. They sold their “winery” in fall of 2009 for a reported $40 million to Duckhorn. Keep in mind that Kosta Browne owned no vineyards and rented their winemaking space. Duckhorn was essentially buying a brand for $40 million in cash. Not a terrible exit for 10 years work.
The winemaker at AldenAlli is Shane Finley - winemaker at Kosta Browne for their incredible run during 2006-2012, which included the Wine Spectator Wine of the Year in 2011.
Fast forward to now and Dan Kosta and AldenAlli want to sell off a chunk of their 2020 Campbell Ranch juice. The release price on this single vineyard wine is $72.00 per bottle (if you can find it). I signed up for their mailing list and could not even buy it.
We are able to bring you this wine one last time for $24.99 per bottle.
While I have already opined on the quality of this wine multiple times, people are still finding out about it.
In the situation below, my friend and his wife only drink Pinot Noir. It is their thing. They know it well, they love it, drink a ton of it etc. etc.
This is the text message I get after he tried a bottle of this on a whim.
I meant to say "sub" instead of "sun", but he got the idea. Now T. Solomon is all they are drinking until the well runs dry. 😂
It's been a good run!!
