    January 15, 2021 - First time having K Vintners. Incredibly ripe with a strong backbone. Youthful. Reminds me of Paso Syrah.

    July 31, 2020 - Decanted 2 hours. Very ripe, with lots of plum and fig primary fruit, with blackberry showing more secondary. Alcohol is apparent on the nose and palate. This is a massive wine, almost overdone if not for the impressive structure that molds the huge fruit weight. Drinking nicely with air (I'd recommend at least a 2 hour decant) but could really lay down another few years. Drink 2022 - 2033+.

    May 23, 2020 - Open about 2 hours. Spectacular but so young. Delicious now but only a teaser of what this is gonna to be in 5+ years.

    April 29, 2020 - Just fantastic. I got more red Berry fruits and cherries. Others had a little darker profile. Hints of olive. Nice spices. Wonderful long finish
