A very, very nice wine, but not as impressive as some previous vintages of the Sonoma Coast bottling. Nose of cherries, spice, and stone. My son loved the nose and could have spent the evening just smelling it. Nice crisp acidity, lots of dark fruit with some loamy tones. Definitely a very good wine, but not quite up to the '06. Of course, compared to anything but another KB it is killer. Everyone at the restaurant loved it, and the Chef even built a tasting menu around it (and the other two wines we brought) for us. There is a reason that I continue to buy Kosta Browne year after year.
