    February 13, 2021 - Nose of oak, vanilla, cedar, and blackberry. Fat palate of blue fruit, blackberry, licorice, black currant, and smoked meat notes. Chewy tannins, oak, blackberry, gravel, dark chocolate, and mocha on the finish. Very easy to drink even at 15+% alcohol.

    October 21, 2020 - I expected more out of this vintage and although it’s good, it doesn’t show as well as some of the earlier vintages that I’ve enjoyed from Kobalt, especially the 2013 vintage. If you have this wine I would hold it or Give it sufficient decanting. Dark color and full bodied, blue, black ripe fruit, tobacco and just a hint of mineral/ earth essence and acidity. Good yet young and needs time.

    April 19, 2020 - Like most Kobalt Cabernets, the 2015 is nicely fruit forward. It’s full bodied and the black fruit is intense but it’s very balanced. There’s definitely lots of spice here along one some earth. This Cabernet is velvety smooth and ready to drink...nice effort.
