Agree with @Bill Bender seems that anything PYCM touches is just stellar. No exception here. Some what a unicorn coming out of Chassagne-Montrachet tangerine, apricot and cream out of the glass. Acid is still in the front of the palate then rolls to the back for a sustained long finish. You get all the elements of cream, yellow watermelon and minerals. — 2 months ago

I’m not normally into “unicorn” wines but an opportunity to get this wine popped up so I took it. Does it live up the hype? To me, yes. Very concentrated floral notes. Rose petals and perfume, sea breeze, orange pith, marzipan, clove, cherry. Gastronomic. Worth trying if you can! — 3 months ago
Unbelievable expression of Napa intensity without the alcohol weight. A true unicorn wine. — a month ago
The 18 is DRC quality a unicorn there is no other Pinot like it right now. It takes hour/days to reveal its layers and power. @40 min: Tannins soft and super well managed no rough edges here a hint of mint, faint touch of black tea bitters, herbaceous @ 15h: More round no oxidative disturbances.
Dark cherry, tart and closed. Finally @7days under Argon: Black Forest meadow, tannins resolved, glorious fruit, long. Dark black heirloom black forest cherries. The 18 E & M Muschelkalk beats out at Pinot I had in the last years . “I wish you where here”. — 2 months ago
Non vintage, but bottled on 2/26/20. Typical KBS on the pour and in the glass. Dark black and viscous. Dark chocolate, bourbon and roasted malt on the nose. Rich and flavorful in the mouth. Great texture. Dark chocolate leads, bourbon in the middle and a slightly bitter finish. 12% ABV is well hidden. KBS was once a unicorn beer (I still have several bottles of every vintage going back to 2013), but this is not that. While still a great beer, the mass production the last few years is starting to take a toll. Maybe a year in the cellar with it's older brothers will give it some balance. — 2 months ago
