    January 8, 2018 - Opened and poured. Quite nice and mature. Still has some KB power, showing mostly cola, hoisin, dark plum and berry notes. Hiding the ABV well on this night. Some humidity on the glyceric heat index, but not too bad. Last one...good run for these.

    May 17, 2015 - Smooth fruity finish. Decent depth. Very nice.

    December 31, 2014 - 15.2% alc. Ruby red center with orange rim. Explosive nose of dark cherry, raspberry, orange blossom, celery, and cocoa. The palate is deep and dark with cherry, raspberry, cocoa, and cola notes. This weighty wine is full-bodied with balanced acidity and tannins. Overall, this is exactly what a hedonistic, yet balanced wine, should provide. It is big and dark with some oak influence, as evidenced by the chocolate notes, but it is not unbalanced, which is quite a feat. While not a vibrant as the 04 Peay Sonoma Coast, it was still a fine wine.

    February 9, 2014 - Second Sunday Group: Older California Pinots (Barb's): Cherry, spice, currant and red fruit aromas; bright. Cherry, cinnamon and raspberry flavors, with licorice and spice flavors on the finish.

    My #2, Domino's #3
    Group #1, 30 pts

    February 9, 2014 - A bit past its prime. Lost the excitement. Drink up if you have any.
