    July 10, 2017 - Black cherry, strawberry, and plum flavors up front with a nice core of caramel, cherry cola, red licorice, earth, and spice box. Nicely structure wine, good finish to it.

    July 7, 2017 - Lovely full bodied Pinot. Great intensity of red cherry flavors and red licorice. Silky smooth with a long finish. Yummy.

    July 2, 2017 - Drank on the deck with a grilled veal chop and Italian country bread. Unmistakeable KB big nose. Fruit packed, spicy cherries, raspberry jam, tart, concentrated , and a long clean finish. Delightful!

    July 2, 2017 - Decanted 45 minutes. Aromas of brown sugar, cherry, strawberry and sassafras. Flavors of sarsaparilla, wild cherry, strawberry shortbread and a touch of herb. Ends with a 25-30 second finish. Started off a bit muted but came on once I started to drink it.
