    August 26, 2020 - Well-balanced and well-made. Fruit -driven and young but good with food (pesto and pasta).

    August 13, 2020 - Bright red fruits predominate on this silky, smooth offering from KB and the Santa Lucia Highlands. Very good appellation offering with some baking spice notes. Medium bodied and a bit more playful than some of the other appellation offerings. Great mouthfeel and palate. More elegance than power for sure. Very nice.

    August 5, 2020 - Pale purple color with slow legs. Cedar, light smoke and cherry on the nose. Raspberry, black cherry and cinnamon on the palate. Long satin like finish. Glad I have another bottle should get better with more time.

    July 13, 2020 - I was expecting it not to be ready to drink but was soft and elegant but still had a kB profile of fruit forward. Not as dry/ alcohol content as 2017. They change the label slightly from all other previous vintages.

    Bravo, great kB profile but w more refinement - I guess they are always tweaking the wine and experimenting or is it different from being from Santa Lucia vs Russian river / Sonoma - I have to call the winery and ask.
