A past Wine Access story about 2014 Knez Winery Pinot Noir Demuth Vineyard Anderson Valley

Demuth Vineyard sold to Kosta Browne in 2016, making this vintage of Knez the last of its kind.

Kosta Browne’s Land Grab Seals Knez’s Fate

The 2014 Knez Pinot Noir Demuth Vineyard is the last of its kind — and we’re not kidding. The winery sold Demuth’s celebrated Anderson Valley vines to Kosta Browne in 2016, and hasn’t made the label since. The 2014 vintage is also the last vintage produced by Anthony Filiberti, the former Williams Selyem cellar hand and Anthill Farms co-founder that Antonio Galloni says possesses “the magic touch when it comes to Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah.” Filiberti tapped Demuth’s 35-year-old vines for this 2014 Knez Pinot turning out a  red-berry driven, velvety textured, elegant wine. The best part given the wine’s rarity? At $19.99 per bottle — 60% off — this is a STEAL and your last chance to taste this fruit at this price. Once under Kosta Browne’s label, the price tag will soar.

Peter Knez’s seven-acre Demuth Vineyard never produced copious amounts of Pinot Noir from its 1,700-foot perch. What it did yield was enough that Anthony Filiberti took some for his own Anthill Farms label and the vineyard drew rapt attention from Kosta Browne — so much so its owners broke out their checkbook and offered Peter an undisclosed sum for his Demuth vines in 2016. After crunching the numbers, Peter agreed.

Filiberti picked a fantastic year for his label-centric swan song. Wine Spectator’s Tim Fish writes Anderson Valley’s 2014 vintage “shows an agile balance between ripe fruit and lively acidity, thanks to abundant sun and cool evening temperatures.” The harvest gave Filiberti ample opportunity to plumb the depths of Demuth’s fog-cloaked landscape and complex soils; his skill produced a velvet-smooth expression of ripe fruit and mountain terroir. This is a very special wine.​

Nice PN, more approachable now than the 2012, which needs more time to come around. More than 40 different PN’s in the cellar and this holds it’s own. Very pleased, buy

One of the best Pinot Noirs I've tasted in a long time.

I find this wine challenging. Better once it is open for several hours, more nuance, but little evidence of sugars or ripeness. Not needing a fruit bomb, but surprised at it's austerity coming from Anderson Valley. I will put these away for a year and see what results.
