Seems a cut above and more distinguished than most of the other KB offerings. I get the distinct cherry cola note that I’m used to with Kosta Brown but there’s some real nuance here too. Very rich but absolutely no heat and markedly silky and penetrating. Could still use some time in the bottle to be sure but in a nice spot now. — 24 days ago
A hearty, bold Pinot noir to be sure. Certainly youthful but not so much so that this cannot be enjoyed now. Matt Courtney worked with Helen at Marcassin and he clearly soaked up a lot—his Chardonnays are superb. I’d wait on this 2-3 years but they are tough to be patient with. — 25 days ago
If not my favorite Howell mountain Cab producer it’s certainly 1A. The True bottling is without a doubt on an echelon above level but this is always very gratifying. I opened this the day I received news of the sale of the winery. I hope I still have the opportunity to sit on the mountain top there and look over the valley. It’s definitely a serene and gorgeous highlight when I visit Napa. — 24 days ago
