The fruit and floral notes are perfect, while the finish is long and lush. I wish I had bought more.
The wine was everything I would have expected from Byron Kosuge. I had the pleasure of meeting him and receiving a private tasting on my last trip to Napa. I loved the Kingston Family Shiraz then and was not disappointed by this vintage. I agree with the reviewer who wished that they had purchased more.
Great body and depth of flavor. And the price makes it a best buy
Tanzer's description was spot on.
Full fruit flavor from the start
A pleasant surprise. Very fruit forward and approachable, with a perfumed nose. The wine benefitted from being poured in a burgundy glass to let the aromas really get incorporated into the tasting. Not muscular, but rather quite feminine, and a good accompaniment to poultry and meatier seafood dishes...but keep it away from red meat.
I have found that I cannot fullly evaluate a shipped wine untill I set it aside for 4-6 months. I liked the bottle I sampled, and will probably rate it much higher next spring. My wine only recently arrived as you were kind enough to hold it for me during the blistering hot days of summer in Phoenix. Continue the good work as we have enjoyed the selections we have purchaced. On another note, if anyone reads this, we live in a state with extra-ordinarilly tough drinking and driving laws. Hence we enjoy our wine best at home. Now, would you ever consider offering some split bottlings so we could have both a white and a red with our meals without loosing our ability to find our bedroom :>) REY
Overall it had good flavors & nice body but it seemed a little on the tart side. It's very drinkable, I would not order it again.
