Dude, this IS the DEAL. Tasting this within the line-up of K bigboys, it more than holds its own despite the more humbling pricing. Power, density, savory intrigue–it may not quite match the texturally rich brilliance of its big brothers and sisters but in 2018 it comes a lot closer than you'd think. -Marcus
96 points James Suckling: "Tea-bag, sweet-tobacco, dark-fruit and lightly toasted-oak character. Full-bodied, chewy, and polished with a long, flavorful finish. Fine, powdery tannins."
2017 vintage notes
93 points Wine Spectator: "Polished and structured, with bold raspberry, rose petal and smoked beef accents that build tension toward broad-shouldered tannins. Drink now through 2030."
