Cirq du Pinot: Kosta Browne Winemaker Launches New Project

Wednesday, September 26, 2012

Kosta Browne Co-Founder and Executive Winemaker Michael Browne has announced a new Pinot Noir project called Cirq. Those waiting impatiently for a Kosta Browne allocation may want to hop on this one now - if you can stomach the prices which push the limits of California Pinot Noir pricing.

I first heard of this last week from Zinfandel Chronicles blogger Tom Lee:

The first vintage is said to be 2011 with a release date of December 2013. We'll see if the style here is aligned with KB's ripe, fruit forward style or if they go in another direction.

Charlie Chenoweth is listed as the Grower for the project. You might recognize the Chenoweth name as a supplier for Patz & Hall Pinot Noirs.

Wine Spectator subscribers can check out this blog post from James Laube for more details. Pricing is said to start close to $100/bottle.

Update: (12/3/2013) Emails announcing allocations for the 2011 Cirq Treehouse Pinot Noir has been sent out. The release price is $100/btl which does not include shipping.

To sign up for their mailing list visit the Cirq website. It's worth a look for its stylish implementation:
