Leading a tasting for some hotel guests. Different styles of Pinot Noir from around the world, starting with our own west coast. This wine features a core of explosive red fruits that define west coast Pinot making. Rich clove and and oak add a savoriness that helps to balance the wine. — 14 days ago
This is a delicious Pinot Noir from Sonoma Coast. Rich, complex and elegant.
Light burgundy in color with a wide reddish rim.
Medium plus in body with medium acidity.
Showing red currants, cooked cherries, oak, light vanilla, spices, light vegetables, tobacco, chocolates, light barnyard, coffee and peppercorn.
This Single Vineyard is nicely balanced with a nice mouthfeel.
Good right out of the bottle and good by itself as a sipping wine.
This 8 year old is peaking now, although it will continue to drink nicely in the next 5 years.
Thank you Scott for sharing.

Australian complex red blend of mostly Cabernet with Tempranillo and garnacha. Very nice. Full bodied, fruity. Needs to breathe. Great with a rib eye. Dark berry tones prominent. Good wine! — 15 days ago
@Robert Evans Jr you suggested infanticide with the 2016 Kosta Browne. This is even more egregious. I actually thought the Pinot was quite good, but I’m pretty new to that world.
This is tight, but everything’s in the right place. Tannins throughout so dusty cherries, currant, and blackberries. There’s and little funk, hope it comes out more later. Have the opp to buy more at a good deal, so grabbed one to try. Gonna grab the rest. — 2 years ago

Bright wild cheery and raspberry aromatics lead to similar expression on palate…lite tannins throughout…interestingly different from the 2013…feel comfort holding — 8 months ago
Needed 30 minutes to come to life and it did in classic KB style. First time having the SLH appellation and I’d rank it a notch below the SC and RRV bottlings. Still, gobs of juicy black cherry, cola and asian spices coat the palate and it developed layers and complexity in the glass. — 4 years ago
