Notes of black ripe cherries, tar, black licorice candy, kiwi, pepper a little oak, really smooth the flavors really come up after decanting for 2 hours, very well balanced medium body, finish is clean and savory but a little short, overall a great cabernet for the money if you can still find it
Excellent cab! Nice cherry on the nose, with a hint of spice (cinnamon?). Deep black cherry flavors, and a long finish with a touch of heat. Tannins bounce around the tongue, adding a bit of dryness.
I'm not sure how Kiona picked their "Reserve" wine for this vintage, but the "regular" bottling seemed about the same as this Reserve. Nothing special here. Nice nose of blackberries, with blackberry and a bit of blue fruit on the palate. Tannins on the finish are unimpressive. I like the regular Terra Blanca wine better.
Sweet strawberry fruit, with a touch of smoked meat. Tannic, but not too harsh. This seems like it could keep going for another 3-4 years.
