July 6, 2015 - Bright cherry red. Nose is pure eau de vie de framboise - not raspberry fruit, but high test alcohol. I have never been a fan of this vintage at KB and this one follows suit. Too alcoholic. My favorite KB single vineyard, but not tonight. (84)

June 14, 2015 - Crimson in color. 14.9% ABV. Gorgeous nose of dark fruits, brown sugar and cloves. Wonderful fruit held in balance by the right amount of acidity. Nice grip on the palate. Flavors of black cherry, baking spices and sarsaparilla. The finish is long and toasty. Really nice showing from a vintage that many proclaimed would not bode well for Kosta Browne over the long term. Drink over the next year or two.

April 12, 2015 - Color is medium red with strawberries and cola on the palate. Nose of earth and red licorice. A bit past its prime with some oxidation.

April 20, 2014 - This was holding up quite well with aromas of strawberry, cherry, brown sugar and flowers. This was quite balanced and not super charged like some of the other KB's but definitely California. Displayed flavors of strawberry, cherry, sarsaparilla, and herb. Wasn't sure how the 2006's would hold up but this is aging quite nicely although I still prefer KB's with only 2-3 years of age on them.
