    November 30, 2019 - Opened up nicely after 30+ minutes in glass. Tart cherry and a bit of cranberry, some leather and forest, a bit of spice.

    November 8, 2019 - Pretty much a pop and pour. Aromas of brown sugar, root beer, dried cherry, spice and cinnamon. Flavors of root beer, dried cherry, dried strawberry, earth and cinnamon. Ends with a dried cherry infused finish of 30-35 seconds that has a very pure note to it. This was drinking better than a thought for 10 years old. Not as good as in it's youth in my opinion but not near dead. Kanzler always was my favorite bottling but the glory days of Kosta Browne in this style is gone. All things must pass.

    October 25, 2019 - Interesting to pop this wine at this point in its life - I thought it showed quite well, toned down, complex. Light ruby color. Classic cherry, strawberry, with cola, cinnamon, mint and rhubarb notes. Full and suave with soft tannins and vibrant acidity (surprisingly so), which helps keep this lively. Big but mellowed down, the cherry and strawberry fruit is nuanced, not in-your-face, and I get these delicious notes of root beer, cola, tilled soil, leaves. I like it! The last KB I have in my collection. End of an era, but I wish I had more of this because it's lovely.

    April 3, 2019 - Ruby with a light purple hue. Huge nose of ripe strawberries and eucalyptus. Big and round palate with no hard edges but surprisingly good acidity on the finish. This is almost balanced. Works very well until the finish when it falls a bit short. Overall, a top notch KB. (92)

    March 21, 2019 - Ruby red in color. 14.7% ABV. Sublime nose of red fruits, cloves, baking spices and earth. Medium to full bodied with exquisite acidity. Exceptionally well balanced. Ripe, concentrated and supple. Black cherry, black raspberry and Asian Spices on the palate. The finish is long and plush. Just a beautiful bottle of Kosta Browne that has aged gloriously. Best over the next 1-2 years.
