  • Light red center with orange tint throughout. The nose is ripe and full of dark cherry, raspberry, maple, and floral components. On the palate, there is a touch of candied dark cherry, raspberry, and BBQ spice. Structurally, the acidity is apparent in this medium-bodied wine and the alcohol pokes through a little on the mid palate. The finish is long and ripe with dark cherry and raspberry. Overall, I probably waited too long on this one. In its youth, it was a big, ripe wine that fit together well, but at this point, the fruit has overtaken the structure creating a slightly flabby, candied profile.

  • Soft. Straight juice. No tannins. Damn Good. Perfect with Thanksgiving feast.

  • Opened and poured, showing a bright ruby with slight oranging. The nose has mellowed a bit from the early days, and so has the fruit, offering a rounder but sweet attack. No detectable heat, three's brown sugar, molasses, cola, stewed cherry strawberry, very nicely integrated oak. The electricity, boldness, vivacity and sheer power has faded, but this is still very pleasant.

  • This bottle is way better than the one I had two years ago. While the one 2 years ago seems on the way down, this one is on peak right now. Silky smooth and really tasty. Finish was just okay though.

    (Kosta Browne Pinot Sonoma) #2; COLOR-dark; NOSE-a mint, farm aspect, soil mixed w/ raspberry component; some dark components; TASTE-huge mouthfeel, really like the overall complexity; similar to #1, but not as much heat; more polished, very smooth & elegant; perfectly made; this winemaker really knows what they're doing; - the soil, the terroir & the overall fruit are SINGING; a true expression; this wine KILLS, the total package, completely brings the Thunder; WS-95; GV-95
