    May 3, 2020 - Opened and poured. Lots of reds showing on this, our first Koplen. Not as weighty as many KBs, and showing some unique vineyard characteristics. Solid.

    November 30, 2019 - Same as my prior note....thanksgiving 2019 lineup. was still vibrant with fruit and life...needs a bit of time to breathe, integrate and open. more powerful than a 2006 sea smoke southing...but not as good...this was bought winery direct and has been in a temp controlled cellar since release

    January 13, 2019 - opened and let breathe in the bottle for 30 mins...needs a full 45 - 60 to open and integrate...a bit out of balance and syrupy until it fully opens...when it does...it's harmonious and wonderful.

    December 24, 2018 - From our cellar. Decanted and drank over a 3 hour window. Best in the first hour. This was a very nice aged KB wine. We loved the bouquet and the ultra smooth texture. However, IMHO, after trying several KB wines with age, I think they are much better in their youth. This one has moved on to a more mature state in which the fruit is more sour and the spices are more pronounced. Alcohol level is still too noticeable as well. The wine is still a joy to drink, but the freshness, vivaciousness and overall 'wow' factor has faded. Drink up.

    September 25, 2018 - Popped-and-poured. No decant. Drank over the course of 2+ hours. Had alongside a grilled pizza. Nice spice to compliment the pizza. Smooth red fruit. Drinking very nicely.
