    September 23, 2019 - You never know w fluctuations in palate and pairings, but this wine was a bit overdone , cinnamon, dark red fruits lacking freshness and acidity.

    August 28, 2019 - Higher acidity than I prefer, but still pretty good. Seemed a little tight and slightly closed. First time in memory I recall less than 90 pts on a KB PN.

    August 9, 2019 - Popped and poured. Very smooth and luscious. A beautifully complex wine with very subtle aromas fennel and sage spice combined with red and dark fresh fruit and hint of rose petal. In the mouth, chocolate covered cherries, ripe raspberries, pomegranate and cola develop throughout the palate. The lingering finish wraps around your palate with focus and freshness.
