The color is dark garnet and the nose is absolutely fantastic. Smells like cherry, leather, milk chocolate, and freshly cut flowers. Fresh, fruity, and rustic on the palate, with great length and a nice finish with loads of dry extract, balance and a level of finesse seldom found in Sonoma Coast wines. Great wine that will last for many years. Does not resemble the KB version from the same vineyard at all.

I am not a professional wine taster, nor do I have any professional training in the wine trade. I am a wine enthusiast who has spent countless hours tasting wines of many different styles. My palate is not aligned with a single wine critic, and I call all wines "as I taste them". My site is a source of tasting notes and wine recommendations as well as warnings without conflict of interest. You'll just have to figure out how your palate aligns with mine. My palate generally tends to veer towards Old-World wines that put a premium on terroir and lovely balance and finesse, rather than raw power...please keep that in mind as you read my notes.
