    December 21, 2014 - this is so delish - supple, silky. great perfume. enough acidity to balance out all of the fruit and sweetness. long long finish. had this next to the 2010 KB Koplen which was too wound still.

    September 29, 2014 - For me, this in a good place today. Rich, dark red fruit, cola notes, underlying baking spice notes, some earthy tones and a little bit of white pepper on the longish finish. I like this one at just above cellar temperature, when it gets much warmer than that it starts to taste hot to me. Double decanted for about 1 1/2 hours.

    September 16, 2014 - Might be one of all time favorites. Great fruit, slight earthy notes with wonderful balanced acidity. Smooth palate, as it goes all the way down. Drank this on my 30th birthday and man, it was tasty.

    September 13, 2014 - One of the more enjoyable KBs I've had recently — seems to be a good time to drink. Heat has subsided (if ever there), a balance of cherry, red berries, some spice on finish.
