Oh boy, I will take a lot of flak for this note…didn’t like this wine at all. Granted, I opened this on the day of delivery, but this wine was so unbalanced that I can’t explain that with travel shock. Nose was actually good, but on the palate, this was a mess. The alcohol really stood out and there was noticeable heat. For a vintage that’s been hyped to be all about balance, I can’t believe that this monster was created. A wall of tannin and a finish that is so dominated by alcohol that I have a hard time seeing this integrate. I may be alone, but this is KB’s worst wine I’ve had. Reminds me of the 03 appellations but not as good. At $45, I consider this a strong pass and fans of the bigger style of Pinot will likely rejoice over this.
I opened a bottle of Merry Edwards because I found the KB close to undrinkable.
