2009 Bodegas Luzon "Luzon" Jumilla (out of stock)  
Review Date: 4-9-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
I have loved this wine in the past In fact, I purchased 4 of the '08 and 7 of the '07 from K & L alone. However, from one sniff I knew this was not going to be good. Porty nose. One sip and I had to pour the entire bottle out.

Very disappointed. This used to be one of my go-to bargain wines.

Clean, fresh, bright and refreshing especially on a warm day. Honeydew, apricot, peach, grass. Extremely light body. Good party wine, Good as an aperitif or with raw/lightly cooked fish/seafood, prosciutto & melon, cold antipasti.

Simple. Straightforward. A bit thin on the mid palate and very cherry. Easy drinking. For $8 you can't complain. At this price, I'm likely to buy more.

Super clean. Light in color with a nose of green & yellow apples. Smooth & round and despite the absence of oak there is a bit of spice.

2007 Flora Springs Napa Valley Chardonnay (out of stock)

Darker than average in color. Perhaps slightly oxidized. Nose suggests some oak. May be a tad burnt. Overall, fairly benign and forgettable. Not as refreshing as I had been hoping for on a hot day like today.

Let this puppy breathe for about 30-45 minutes.

Darker than average gold color. Beautiful nose of butterscotch, honey, apple and some lightly spiced oak. Rich medium-full body. Buttery and spicy. Fairly elegant. Really picked up with some lightly spiced pork chops and got even better with about an hour+ of air

2009 Four Vines "Naked" Santa Barbara Chardonnay (out of stock)  
Review Date: 5-19-2011

Almost Sauvignon Blanc-like in appearance and aroma. But the flavors are all Chardonnay: green apple, pear, peach along with some tropicality. IMHO, it turns a little bit sour on the finish.

2009 Kirkham Peak Redwood Valley Sauvignon Blanc (out of stock)

Uber pale. The nose is of citrus fruits dominated by lime. The mouth is fairly full for a SB. The lime follows through where it is intermixed with some tropical notes. Fairly long finish. Good, warm-weather quaffer.

Nice coloring for a SB. Nose gives off tons of citrus notes dominated by lemon. Clean, crisp, nice acidity. Lemon, melon. Nice finish. All in all, a very enjoyable SB. Contains 2.5% Napa Semillion.

2009 Rombauer Carneros Chardonnay (out of stock)  
Review Date: 5-19-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Beautiful, rich golden color. Pear, apple and butter on the nose. Rich, silky, cream full-bodied mouth. Mid-palate seems a little hollow. But, the finish is long and expressive -- butter leading to butterscotch finishing with a nice hint of spicy oak.

I had greatly enjoyed a previous bottle of this vintage that I was somewhat disappointed by this bottle. Hopefully, it is just some bottle variation (they do make a ton of this stuff) as I have another two bottles.

Here the flavors & aromas are both of honey, green apple, butter & light oak. The nose is quite elegant. The wine is medium bodied, soft & round. Really good stuff at a really great QPR. Definitely one of the better mass-produced Chardonnays out there.

2009 Chateau St. Jean Sonoma County Fumé Blanc (out of stock)  
Review Date: 5-19-2011

Quite intriguing and engaging and a great QPR. The nose gives off pink grapefruit and wee hint of subtle oak. I also felt I could smell the Semillion blended in. The grapefruit continues on the palate and is met with some lemon finishing with pear and green apple. Lively acidity and a clean, round body. Will likely be one of my main summer wines this year.
