Light gold. Exuberant pear, lemon and jasmine on the nose, with anise, iodine and wet stone qualities adding complexity. Ginger- and mineral-accented orchard fruit flavors show very good depth and clarity, picking up weight on the back half. Finishes with impressive energy and persistence, leaving a bright floral note behind. This nervy wine has a pH of 3.3, according to Michael Browne.

The 2010 Chardonnay One Sixteen is a new wine from Kosta Browne, here in its second vintage. Made in a distinctly Burgundian style, the wine reveals an expressive bouquet along with hints of lemon, white flowers, spices and French oak. There is a slight element of disjointedness, but Kosta Browne is onto something with this wine, and it is only a matter of time before the elements come together with even greater harmony.

Showing a pithy orange peel and spicy floral edge to the white peach and mineral notes, this is young and tight, gaining gains depth and intensity. Needs time.

About This Producer


Kosta-Browne started its supersonic trek to celebrity status in 1997, when pals Dan Kosta and Michael Browne pooled their restaurant tips and purchased a half ton of Pinot Noir, a manual crusher-de-stemmer and a used barrel. Adding the business and investment-savy Chris Costello gave Kosta Browne the requisite resources to expand into the Pinot force they are today. Fruit is sourced from top-notch vineyards in the Russian River, Sonoma Coast, and Santa Lucia Highlands. Their philosophy is to make Pinots that express intense flavor and the "sweet spot" of their respective vineyards. In addition to their vineyard-designate wines, Kosta Browne also produces two blends: one from the Sonoma Coast and the other from Russian River.
