Wow, I absolutely love this wine. Intoxicating aromas of brioche, cherry skins, and a hint of florality. The palate is deep and rich while showing wonderful energy and minerality. Enoyed this wine in Riedel Vinum Burgundy glasses and let the aromatics soar and palate really show it's stuff. Great!

Drank over 3 nights. Dark notes of fruit and spice.

    8/14/17, 11:57 AM - I think that it is in good shape and currently drinking well. I definitely think that it has 2-3 years of good drinking ahead of it. It showed quite well on day two, but on day three it started to fade. I pumped the air out each day, but there was only about 3 ounces left on day three.

Slow O'd for 8 hours before enjoying. But honestly the taste that I had upon opening may have been better than after the 8 hours of prep. Initially quite perfumed and seemed open for business. At dinner, the wine was slightly more closed down - which I am starting to see if a current characteristic of the 2004 vintage in Barolo/Barbaresco. The wine still showed some very nice notes of strawberries, chocolate, and black licorice. The palate was smooth and polished. The new oak is well integrated and I am sure contributed to the smooth texture of the wine.

2006 Tablas Creek Mourvedre Paso Robles

I opened this wine to check on it and see where it was at. It was very youthful and it took some time for the tannins to soften. There was great ripe red plum fruit, dark chocolate, and that earthy undertone that I look for in Mourvedre. This wine could definitely benefit from some more age, I will probably have my next bottle in 2 years.

Beautiful nose of classic KB perfumed fruit. I think that the 2008s are starting to finally come around and get into a more traditional KB wheelhouse. Still, this vintage is different and the muted tones of darker fruit and higher acid remain.
