    June 30, 2019 - Over two days. Have known of and wanted to taste KB wines, but preferring Burgundy over New World Pinot Noir, the price point never justified my curiosity. Found this half for $25 and could not walk away.

    It made an impression on the first day, fragrant, high-pitched, lifted, and smooth. The wine also showed very good textures and reasonably good balance, as alcohol was certainly noticeable though not overt. No real expression of place, other than hints of manipulation, moderate oak treatment, enjoyable finish.

    Unfortunately, the wine had begun falling apart on the second day. Most of the perfume had faded, showing mostly alcohol instead. The same held true on the palate, with alcohol generating a slow burn. An interesting experience, which I have no need to repeat.

    The score is based on the wine's best showing on the first day.

    June 8, 2019 - Bold and smooth. Color of red. Scents of raspberry and cherry. Tastes consistent with scents, with a round and medium mouth feel.

    April 7, 2019 - Exuberant fruit on the nose. Mouth-filling fruit flavors on the palate. Nice finish
