Low US Retail is updated twice a month and excludes outlier listings. Detailed listings are sourced daily from our partner, Global Wine Stocks, and may include outliers. Note that you can use the 'Report a problem' link which appears after clicking on any individual listing to notify our content team and partner of incorrect wine matches.
Auction prices are based on actual auction results (inclusive of buyerÂ’s premiums) of 750ml bottle sizes only. As auction prices fluctuate from auction to auction and some wines have limited auction activity, the average auction price is updated twice a month and derived from a proprietary algorithm.

Winemaker's Comments "Kunde's '202' Meritage is a New World expression of the great red wines of Bordeaux. In other words, we use the same grape varieties as they do in France, but the flavors are all about Sonoma Valley. Imagine pure, ripe blackberries nestled into some rich dark chocolate with a little spice sprinkled over it all to add further layers of flavor. A glass of this wine with grilled chicken or pork tenderloin will be like adding a rich fruit sauce to your delicious creation. They don't make flavors like these in Bordeaux; this is pure Kunde!" Winemaking Moderate, steady temperatures in 2006 let us cherry pick blocks and sub-blocks at the peak of ripeness. These wines are full and open in their youth, with good structure for the future. A two day cold soak was followed by inoculation with multiple selected yeasts for complexity. Pumpovers were done twice per day with aeration and vigorous folding in of the cap early on for better extraction and color. Pressed near the end of fermentation when the tannins were balanced, the wine was then aged for 18 months in small French and American oak barrels, 56% new oak. The wine was bottled in July 2008. Food Pairing Delicious served with grilled pork tenderloin, drizzled with a red wine reduction sauce

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
