Home winemaker, I make primarily Zinfandels but have also made Cabernet Sauvignon and Syrah. I have been a fan of K&L for a number of years, love the variety!
2007 Tintara Shiraz McLaren Vale South Australia (out of stock)
Review Date: 4-30-2012
This is pretty good Aussie Shiraz for $8. Good complexity and structure, if I remember correctly under 14% alcohol. A lot to like in addition to price!
2006 Bodegas LAN Crianza Rioja (out of stock)
Review Date: 1-4-2011
Dark color, medium body, good nose and layered flavors of dark cherry, orange pekoe tea, pomegranate, herbs. Light but gripping tannins provide nice texture. I drank this on it's own and it was tasty, looking forward to pairing with spaghetti bolognese, pizza, and fajitas. 13.5% ABV, drinking well know and probably another 3 years.
2008 Bonterra Cabernet Sauvignon Mendocino-Lake County (out of stock)
Review Date: 1-1-2011
Medium body, good structure, really nice flavors, probably will drink best now and for another 2-3 years. It tastes like a good cab, wish it had a little more weight and follow through but then it would cost at least $30. At this price a really good deal and very appealing wine. We just had it with steak and fries which it complemented well, and I would love this with burgers or meatloaf. I wanted to keep some to see what it would taste like day 2, but it forced me to finish the bottle. It is 13.5% ABV.
2006 Red Lion California Cabernet Sauvignon (out of stock)
Review Date: 11-16-2010
I have tried this twice. Both times I found it somewhat harsh and not in balance due to oak and tannins. Second day it did improve somewhat, but did not smooth out enough. Did not find this all that interesting and it was hard on the palate.
2007 Kalinda El Dorado Zinfandel (out of stock)
Review Date: 11-5-2010
Jammy with some clove and white pepper. First impression is the wine is sweet, but after couple of sips sweetness fades, becomes more balanced and spicyness picks up. Alcohol is 15.1%. Hedonistic with good complexity.
