A gorgeous Chardonnay, the 2012 One Sixteen offers both incredibly classy elegance, as well as building richness and texture. Ripe stone fruits, lemon curd, white flowers, liquid mineral, brioche and toast all emerge from the glass, and this beauty has a medium to full-bodied, elegant, taut and energetic profile on the palate that keeps you coming back to the glass. Staying lively and refreshing, with vibrant acidity, this beauty will age gracefully for over a decade (although bottles would not last that long at my house). (JD)
Pale gold. High-pitched aromas of Meyer lemon, pear skin and smoky minerals, with a hint of clove in the background. Tight, mineral-driven orchard fruit flavors put on weight with air and pick up a sexy floral quality and a touch of dried fig. Finishes tight and long, with an emphatic mineral kick. (ST)
Kosta Browne's Chardonnay One Sixteen is open and very pretty. A wine of pure texture, the 2012 impresses for its soft, caressing personality. Lemon peel, white flowers and spices all flesh out in a resonant, highly appealing Chardonnay. I would prefer to drink the 2012 in its youth, while the fruit remains vibrant. Light tropical-inflected notes linger on the close. As has been the case for the last few years, the Chardonnay was done partly in oak. Vineyard sources include Zio Tony, El Diablo, Searby, Ulises Valdez, Charles Ranch and Heinz. (AG)
Tight and concentrated, with a trim mix of subtle pear, honeysuckle, green fig and apple flavors. Aromas of fresh citrus and honeydew gain through the long and persistent finish. (JL)
