2008 Mud House "Swan" Pinot Noir Central Otago New Zealand (out of stock)  
Review Date: 2-1-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
This has become the new house pinot, intermixed with Sean Minor Four Bears, until the supply runs out. This quality of wine is usually in $17-20 range for New Zealand, so kudos to K&L for serving it up at $11.

An excellent value. Paired it with braised pork and it made everyone happy. Those who had never tried lagrein were over the moon.

2009 Spellbound California Chardonnay (out of stock)  
Review Date: 2-1-2012
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
This wine is probably a tremendous value to Rombauer lovers (which I am not). It has a sweet finish, and possesses all the "Cal-modern" winemaking tricks that seem to please the American masses. Its fruit is very tropical. But it will not please someone looking for Burgundian and leaner-styled French chardonnay -- at any price.

2009 Mission Estate Winery Syrah Hawkes Bay New Zealand (out of stock)

An excellent value for folks who like Northern Rhone style syrah. I'd buy this before most sub-20 Crozes Hermitage and Saint Joseph.

My house rose bubbly. The regular brut is even better.

A real beauty, equal parts modern and classic Rioja. Drink now. Thanks to K&L for getting this wine and passing it down to customers at a great price.

2009 Sean Minor "Four Bears" Carneros Pinot Noir (out of stock)  
Review Date: 5-20-2011
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Sorry to say this isn't nearly as great as the 2008 (I bought a case of it), which was one of the greatest California pinot values in awhile IMO. But if you are willing to take your chances on a sub-15 dollar-pinot and you like copious new oak, then give it a shot.

Wine Preserva - Wine bottle preservation disks - 50 pack (out of stock)  
Review Date: 12-23-2010

Bubble wrap core with plastic fingers. A novel way to preserve wine -- and I think it works -- but I just don't find myself stuffing these things down the neck of every bottle I leave open for the next day. Argon is so much easier.

2007 Domaine les Pallieres "Les Terraces de Diable" Gigondas (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-21-2010
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
Cellar material here. A beautiful, classic Gigondas. Not drinking that well right now, but improves at 3 hours of air. The fruits and spices are quite subltle even at 3 hours, which I trust will improve with bottle age.
Drink from 2015

2009 Quinta do Feital "Auratus" Minho (out of stock)  
Review Date: 10-1-2010
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
The given K&L wine description did very little to prepare me for this wine. No, I have never tried this style of wine before, but somehow I was expecting an aromatic, peachy, light Rias Baixas albarino. What I got instead was a medium weight wine with a ton of mineral and acidity. Fruits were lower toned. How about: "French chenin blanc meets a dry Alsace pinot blanc meets Sancerre." Very, very nice wine. Better on the second day. Incredible pairing potential...and definitely pair with food.
Drink from 2010 to 2013

2008 Westrey "Oracle Vineyard" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir (out of stock)  
Review Date: 9-17-2010
Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image Reviewer image
So this is what the 2008 vintage is all about! For $25, this is a world-class pinot noir to make most everyone happy -- the Burgundians and the cooler climate folks. Certainly cellar worthy.
Drink from 2012 to 2017

One of my favorite zins in this price range and in the Amador/Napa style. Very consistent year on year. Alcohol not overpowering.

Unbelievable for the price. Carneros pinot for 13.99 that blows many value-priced names in the same year/AVA out of the water.
