    July 14, 2019 - Broke into the magnum for a summer party. Was a little early in it's life but only the good die young. This was fantastic. Great fruit - not as big as previous SC versions but really nice tasting. Red fruit driven. Solid in the middle with a very smooth finish. This was a winner winner chicken dinner.

    April 23, 2019 - All ripe cherry on the nose, little bit of orange zest, the palate follows suit, with a bit of cola and bramble entering the mix of that same ripe cherry and zest. Really quite tasty. *Note* due to a bit too much wine, this was consumed in its entirety on day 2, after several hours of decanting and then going back in the bottle. Reminded me the magic of KB and how much flavor you can extract from this grape.

    March 31, 2019 - This started out a bit tart with cherry and rhubarb notes. It seemed a bit sour and the body was a bit thin, almost insipid. The mouthfeel was present but it lacked some of the richness of fruit that long time KB drinkers relished. Don't get me wrong here, there is nothing flawed in this bottle. I only struggle to compare it to a single vineyard offering I drank before it at $25 less a bottle that clearly outshines this wine. I think this would be better if paired with food as it did have the stuffing to complement the right dish.

    February 4, 2019 - Ruby in color. Nose of cedar, sour cherry,toast and orange peel. Raspberry, cola and cinnamon on the palate. Long silky finish.

    January 30, 2019 - Good, but a little tart. Needs more time in cellar.
