    May 28, 2017 - Enjoyed a 1/2 bottle at Mike & Dianna's. A bit thin and light bodied, and the fruit wasn't as bombastic as I usually expect from KB, but went well with the pickled vegetable platter, and the ribeye. Solid pomegranate and cola notes, with a glyceric envelopment that is typical of KB wines.

    April 30, 2017 - Going strong … somehow missed this in my cellar. Deep red, balanced mouthful of cherry, raspberry, a hint of sage and baking spice, and touch of sous bois. Despite 14.8% Abv there is no obvious heat, just a nice generous finish. One of the more enjoyable KB's I've had recently.

    April 24, 2016 - Wonderfully complex wine. Garnet colored with slow legs. The nose has red currant, dark cherry, hint of vanilla with a smokiness. On the palatte dark cherry, stoniness with a smokiness. The body is full with a leathery texture and nice long finish. Did a vertical tasting with the 09 which was similar but not as complex, but more elegant and softer.
