    November 5, 2019 - The wine pours a medium to dark purple with very little light coming through. On the nose, it’s classic kosta Browne with notes of berries, earth, and a touch of oak and it’s a very subtle nose it does not jump out of the glass. On the palate, it is a very moutfilling and pleasing wine with the oak flavors coming through as well as the berries, but the wine is soft and supple. Always a treat opening one of these to enjoy I’ll be curious to see how it develops as it open more!

    August 10, 2019 - Candied cherry and cola notes. Ripe and full bodied, but plenty of energetic underlying acidity. This stood up well, and paired nicely with a barbecued asian style pork shoulder. A crowd pleaser.

    August 8, 2019 - Rich core of dark cherry fruit and spice on the nose and palate with silky texture and a moderate finish with refreshing acidity & tannins.

    June 2, 2019 - Bold style of Pinot Noir. Dark and fruit forward, but also noteworthy for its acidity and dry spices on the finish. Another example of the wide versatility of this grape.

    March 13, 2019 - This records a Jan 20, 2019 tasting. This was my second to last of four bottles. The best of the 2012 KB's I acquired.
