Kosta Browne Chardonnay Russian River Valley One Sixteen 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points California Grapevine: Medium-light to medium golden yellow color; attractive, forward, intense, buttery, lemony, ripe pear and spicy baked apple aroma with mineral notes and traces of vanilla and butterscotch; medium-full to full body; forward, rich, deep, firmly structured, pear and green apple flavors with bright acidity and a slightly creamy mouthfeel; lingering aftertaste. While the fruit and oak are amply proportioned in this wine they are also very nicely balanced and well integrated. Very highly recommended. 14.5% alcohol; 2,191 cases; 100% barrel fermented; 100% malolactic fermentation; released Spring 2013. (Apr 2013)

Flavorful, intense wines - that is our goal. We believe every wine should be bursting with flavor. This intensity should be part of a greater balance. We find that each of our vineyards has its own "sweet spot" of balance. It is our charge to guide each vineyard to its optimum flavor potential. Our single vineyard wines are blended to express the specific qualities and consistencies of our pedigreed vineyards. Pinot Noir is the perfect palate to define the terroir of these plantings. We offer two appellation wines: our Sonoma Coast and Russian River. These wines are blended to represent the best of our vineyards in each specific appellation. Quality is of utmost importance with these blends. Read less
