    April 24, 2016 - Did a vertical tasting with the 08 which was similar but more complex. I like the 08 a bit more than the 09, but both are excellent wines. This wine is garnet colored with slow legs. The nose has dark cherry, and a hint of vanilla. On the palatte dark cherry, stoniness with a hint of barn-yard funk - the 08 had some smokiness as well. The body is full with a soft elegant texture and nice long finish.

    February 29, 2016 - Same as my CT notes from last month. I did not decant, as it did not need it at all. Ready to drink on a PnP just fine. My last bottle of the 2009 Gap's. One of the better bottles of KB that I've had lately.

    Drink now and over the next year.
