2012 Kirkham Peak Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir
Review Date: 4-15-2014
A wine made for us by a respected winery that we are huge fans of. This is a bright, rich wine with lovely red fruit, baking spice, leather and cinnamon. A fruit forward wine with a nice backbone to give it balance. An excellent example of the 2012 vintage from the Santa Lucia Highlands.

2010 Freemark Abbey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 4-4-2014
A Napa Valley legend that continues to produce excellent Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon at a great price. Rich black fruit, cassis, cinnamon, clove and dark chocolate wrapped within lovely toasted cedar and vanilla. A nicely balanced wine with great length and structure. It will drink tonight but give it two or three years and it should be at it's best.

2012 True Myth Edna Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 3-26-2014
A California chardonnay with a generous amount of citrus fruit, a hint of cedar and vanilla along with great acidity. A balanced and dry wine with an all around, easy to drink style. 65 % oak barrels in which 38 % are new wood. 10 % Malolactic fermentation. Lees stirring for 3 months. All of this for only $ 12.99. I think every chardonnay fan will be impressed. This is no joke. Made by the folks at Niven Family Wines, who planted many of the vineyards in Edna Valley in the 1970's.

2012 Neyers "Sage Canyon" Rhone Blend
Review Date: 3-19-2014
A beautiful California Rhone blend made up of 45% Carignane, 25% Grenache, 15% Mourvedre and 15% Syrah. 100% used oak. A medium bodied with wine great balance of lush red and blue fruit backed by solid yet lush tannin. Layers of spice, earth and cedar weave themselves among the beautiful fruit. A joy to drink and at 14.2% alcohol, lower than some wines of the Rhone region. Enjoy the wine now and for the next year or two.

2010 Dunn Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 11-19-2013
A wine of beauty and class. This Dunn Napa is a wine for now and later. Will open up with an hour in a decanter, showing a beautiful nose of plum, lavender and cedar. The mid palate explodes with generous plum, cassis, spice and of course the mineral streak that runs throughout. The wine is beautiful, as all Dunn are, and should be part of your short or long term cellar.

2012 Charles Smith "Kung Fu Girl" Evergreen Columbia Valley Riesling
Review Date: 10-30-2013
Made by Charles Smith Wines out of Washington, this is always a customer favorite. This is the Riesling that makes every Asian meal better. A beautifully balanced Riesling in the off-dry style. A wine with juicy citrus fruit and great acidity. This wine is priced to try.

2010 Clos du Val Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 9-16-2013
Can you get any better than this Cabernet Sauvignon under $ 25.00. Not many from Napa Valley. A legendary producer in the Napa Valley, the vineyard is still making precise, balanced wines at a great price. This 2010 Cabernet is full of dark fruit, spice,cedar and just a hint of red fruit and chocolate. Tasty.

2009 White Rock Napa Valley Claret
Review Date: 9-16-2013
Pound for pound there is not much better than this. A beautiful Cabernet Sauvignon based wine with incredible layers of flavor. Soft, yet structured, with great balance. This is a California wine with a Bordeaux feel. Lots of leather, spice, tobacco and minerality to go along with it's lush black fruit.

Campeňn K&L Exclusive Blanco Tequila 750ml
Review Date: 9-1-2013
I love tequila but tend to drink Reposado. This Blanco, made exclusively for K&L, is a treat. Pure and clean with hints of citrus and spice. The finish of pepper and spice is something truly special, that you don't get from most of the blanco in this market. Great for blending but much better just sipping. Get it while you can.

A delightful sparkler for $ 11.99. Chenin Blanc and chardonnay combine for lovely aromatics and lovely freshness on the palate. A treat for the price.
