Dry and tannic at first.....I kind of liked that. But slowly evolved into the fruit forward, moderately oaked cab I recall.

Tobacco, cocoa and dry oak on the entry, with red currant, rasberry, fig fruit, finishes dry with fine grained tannins.

Surprise hit! Candied (almost carbonic) cherries and a bit of pyraziny goodness - firm acid and soft supple texture. Great time to drink these, but I don't imagine too many are around...

Manages good composure for the vintage, deeper black fruit that 2011, while retaining freshness and acidity. Dusty cocoa and dry oak in the finish.

Rich and opulent, ripe, in the napa style but below 14%: very clean, no funk

Remember tasting some good reds when visiting Kunde. This is just ok though, leftover from group can tasting.

I am normally not a cab person but I tasted this next to a Russian river pinot and was shocked I liked it better. Velvety tannins, really nicely balanced.

Velvet. Deep cherry; jam; port. Nice and heavy. While initially just good, quickly grew on me.
