Re: Has Kosta Browne lost their mind?

I'm not sure what $200 represents, but it is not the release price of this wine.

I’m a buyer - especially of the southing which is an annual case purchase. Happy to take older vintages off of the hands of those who have seen these dramatic pallet shifts and answer the OP’s question with not. I find it to be easy drinking that is always enjoyed by company.
