    January 19, 2015 - Always a crowd pleaser. So smooth, with great fruit. This vintage seems a bit more balanced than the 2010s and 2011s. As always, there are the great Christmas spices to this Pinot.

    January 17, 2015 - Drank this a few days after trying a few other splendid 2012 SC pintos from Neyers (Roberts Road) and Phelps (Fogdog). Three excellent wines with similar profiles, but what set this apart was texture, intensity and length. Beautifully done. 92-94.

    December 24, 2014 - Lovely Pinot of cherry, licorice, and forest floor. Bright bold flavors, medium to full bodied and nice balance - lacking some of the over extraction of some of the earlier Kostas.

    December 7, 2014 - I don't think this is drinking as well as the Sonoma 11 right now - but the potential is there - or better. I'm holding till 2016. Agree with other reviews - very typical of KB style - very enjoyable.
