    November 18, 2014 - So good it has to be in its prime. Drinking great but it should drink well for at least another 3-5 years.

    November 9, 2014 - This is a bright Rock Star of a wine.. Lots of show and Cherry fruit, but also some amazing balance, and secondary flavors of carmel, cola, some baking spice notes. Fun stuff. Based on my previous experiences with KB wines, they best shows within the first 2-3 years. Afterwards the fruit seems to decline. So, I say drink up now and enjoy this rock star!

    November 1, 2014 - Great wine - great long finish, smooth and great bold fruit (blackberry, some blueberry) and subtle smoke/cocoa. Easily the WOTN.

    October 5, 2014 - Maria's favorite wine maker. Aromas of black cherry, cola, and sweet xmas spice. The flavors took a while to integrate - but that sweet mix of cherry and spice blends with forest floor and minerality to provide the trademark KB flavor.
