    November 30, 2021 - On initial tasting (by Coravin), kind of tart, far overshadowing the fruit and character of the wine. Perhaps this will improve, but not typical of the KB deep fruit and nose I would have expected.

    June 7, 2021 - 6/7/21 dark burgundy cork, slightly soft at wine end, body of cork firmer. Initially was tart and taste was like cough syrup. That was first day. Day two, still try, a bit softer, but more balanced.can taste more alcohol today. Thicker flavor on day two, more soil, vastness at back of tongue. Just the slightest drying flavor on the cheeks. Despite these aspects, a decent pinot. Is it possible this required a few more years?
    Update 6/27/21. Saved bottle with cork in it, and smelled wine when uncorked; like wet newspaper, so is brett a suspect or just too far after initial opening to factor in?

    April 4, 2021 - A nice bottle of wine, more extracted than their Santa Lucia offering, and different profile in the fact that it seems like denser wine, with a heavier fruit profile. But not as fruity filled as say their 2007 which I thought was really great. Enjoyable and well made.

    February 20, 2021 - It has lost a bit of its vibrant (over?) youth and it is complimentary. Still plenty of fruit to be found but spices and structure dominate. Very good.
