($45) Medium red. Jammy raspberry and cola aromas complicated by mocha, red licorice and an exotic hint of peach pit. Sweet and velvety in the mouth, with creamy raspberry and plum preserve flavors and good heft. The weighty, round finish features a clingy red fruit preserve quality. I'd opt for drinking this on the young side.

This has gained in bottle, becoming notably graceful, elegant and supple. Rich, complex red berry and spice flavors are joined by a cola-sassafras edge.

Bright cherry and violet hints in the nose with a touch of herb leading into the plum and dark berry flavors.

Color is tending toward brick red; nose is has some high tone red fruit as well as sandalwood and slight, very pleasant earth; palette has similar notes with sweetness added to the fruit on the front, middle adds cola and a mid-range finish with bourbon-barrel oak. Excellent if not completely full of stuffing.

These wines are too big for my taste, though its age has calmed the fruit some. Certainly not as interesting as the KB's single vineyard pinots.
