"Decanted' in the bottle for about two hours before consuming, this was really closed down at first. Even so, the gang really loved this wine, and Kosta Browne is always a crowd pleaser within our local tasting group.
First thing I noticed on the nose was the alcohol, which I didn't remember when we had this wine 11 months ago. Black cherry, cola, and spice on the nose, with some strawberry and raspberry as well. The alcohol is starting to blow off.
On the palate, more subdued than the KB's that I love, and not as sweet. More black cherry and cola, with some other red fruits. By the time I was down to my last quarter of a glass, this transformed into the KB that I love and was absolutely delicious. Stll not sure what to make of these '06's. I think they might need more time. 90 points.

Born in Illinois, I spent my younger years as a local Chicago Foodie checking out restaurants in the city, and working as a waiter at many of the finest restaurants in the suburbs of Chicago. Look for me visiting a restaurant near you, or at one of the many local wine offlines throughout New Jersey
