Drinkable now, but could be better in 7 years! Listo para tomar ahora, pero podría mejorar añejado otros 7 años!

Maybe not the best choice for a summer's day, but it is certainly an extravagant one.

Cassis, coffee, black fruits and kirsch on the nose. On the palette, the wine seems to have shed some puppy fat. It has evolved to become less viscous and more delineated. Excellent balanced structure, complicated with tobacco, smoke, maraschino cherries and cinnamon. Finishes long and sweet, with a plush texture. This is an excellent single vineyard, 100% cab blockbuster.

Wow! Just up my alley...
Extravagant nose of syrup, exotic fruits and jam compote.

On the palette, the wine is framed with text-book tannins. The flavors sail on. Huge depth and length. Excellent KV example.

Was quite impressed with this wine. Haven't had it since about 2007 or so and felt it had developed to about its peak. A little bit on the old world side, some earth and underbrush with red and black fruit, black pepper, smooth tannins and a lingering finish with a touch of vanillin and the tiniest hint of cedar.

Fascinating nose. Tobacco, sandalwood, and oolong tea.
