Wonderful 2014 Kosta Browne One Sixteen Chard. Kiwi and melon fruits with just the right balance of acidity and crispness. Complimented the Chicken Picante in lemon sauce perfectly. Only buy a bottle or 2 a year. Shared with family on Labor Day Dinner 2016!!! CB93👍

Bigger fan of the Chard than the Pinot. Nicely balanced for its weight.

Fantastic pairing with wild halibut. Golden in color, melon and honey suckle. Bliss

Known for their pinots, but don't sleep on Kosta Browne Chardonnay. Impressive Sonoma Chard with oak and butter, but in wonderful balance and harmony

Not overly oaky or buttery; delightful & fresh despite its age

Light golden color. Granny Smith apple dominant on the nose with hints of tropical fruit and moderate new oak. Mid-weight on the palate with bright acidity and pleasant flintiness. 14.5% alcohol. Mostly barrel fermented with the remaining 8% fermented in concrete then aged 12 months in 42% new French oak. $80.
