2012 Ch‚teau de Maligny Chablis
Review Date: 6-13-2014
A super value Chablis that expresses its uniqueness. This wine is elegant, crisp and well-structured. The 2012 Chablis is chalky with a mineral quality. The wine is mouth-filling and full, with a smooth and supple finish.

2010 Seghesio Barolo
Review Date: 6-8-2014
From the Great 2010 vintage this wine brings aromas of dried cherry, and roseís and on the palate you will find raspberries, tar, tobacco, truffle, and a little Langhe dust with a good tannin structure. I love the elegance to this wine, and with all of its varietal purity here, I still might want to decant it for a couple hours or can even age for a couple of years (up to five or six years if you are that patient), and I am thinking it would show best with a wild mushroom risotto or a barbecue tri-tip.

2009 Querceto Chianti Classico Riserva
Review Date: 6-3-2014
On the palate you will find, black cherries with a touch of earth. In the mouth, the wine is Medium-bodied, with fine concentration, and soft tannins. I give this two thumbs up, a perfect wine for the Burgers or grilled portabella.

2011 La Massa "La Massa" Toscana
Review Date: 5-29-2014
Concentrated Sangiovese fruit with layers of subtle earth and mineral scents in a soft and forward body. Wonderful to drink now!

2012 Antech Chardonnay Vin de Pays d'Oc
Review Date: 5-29-2014
A superb candidate for a house white as it can be enjoyed on its own at the end of a long day, or with a variety of seafood, salad and light white meat dishes.

2012 Butternut Chardonnay
Review Date: 4-29-2014
Here is a classic California Chardonnay. This wine has exhilarating aromas of honeysuckle, pear and green apple, with hints of pineapple. On the palate, this wine is rich and full-bodied, with lively fruit, sweet vanilla, butterscotch flavors and a refreshing, long, lingering finish.

2012 Erik Banti Il Vermentino Toscana
Review Date: 4-26-2014
Incredibly complex nose you can almost smell the salt air and with hints of spice and vibrant grapefruit. Rich and round on the palate but with a good amount of acidity and a touch of mandarin zest on the finish, delicious!

2012 Blason Cabernet Franc Isonzo
Review Date: 3-20-2014
Itís back! And as long as I can keep my co-workers at bay, you may be able to buy some for yourself. There is nothing simple about this cab/franc, it has the classic blueberry and herbaceous, plum and a hint of cola also a little white pepper on the finish. A staff and consumer favorite for many years now, this is a wine you will want to stock up on.

2013 Terre da Vino "Masseria dei Carmelitani" Gavi di Gavi
Review Date: 3-20-2014
This is Cortese (the region is Gavi in Piedmont) it has very delicate perfumes of apples and apricots. It is un-oaked and crisp, with citrus and peach fruit and notes of herbs and is wonderfully delicate but with great structure, love its length & balance as well as its complexity. Salute Guido!

2011 Rocca di Montegrossi Chianti Classico
Review Date: 3-20-2014
From the very user friendly 2011 vintage, this is one of our best values from Tuscany, black cherries, spicy oak, and a touch of earth. In the mouth, the wine is full-bodied, with fine concentration and a dry finish, with well integrated and soft tannins. Enjoy tonight and over the next couple years.

2008 Rocca di Montegrossi "San Marcellino" Chianti Classico
Review Date: 3-20-2014
This boasts a deep ruby/purple color in addition to sweet vanilla (from French oak), and lots of black cherries, raspberries, and currants with hints spice, Tuscan dust and minerals. There is a great texture on this full- bodied wine; it has a long, authoritative finish that combines power with elegance. SoÖ pull the cork a few hours before you throw pork roast on the Qí and enjoy the first days of spring.

2012 Ermacora Pinot Grigio Colli Orientali del Friuli
Review Date: 3-20-2014
This is our sixtieth of bringing Ermacora to you and in 1998 our price on the P/G was $11.99! We love beating that Euro down! and one of K & Lís best sellers since we started bringing them in. The perfect balance of acidity and tremendous aromatics, loaded with pear, apple, citrus and tropical fruit in an elegant, concentrated and superbly balanced wine. This is a Great wine for you to start the evening off with some pecorino and will work well with a first course of bruschetta or insalata mista.

2012 Ermacora Ribolla Gialla Colli Orientali del Friuli
Review Date: 3-20-2014
Ribolla Gialla enjoys a long history as one of Friuli's oldest indigenous vines, this extremely unusual wine would be worth buying solely on account of its very low price, but once you have tried this unusual grape varietals, you be back for more. The palate is intense and full with a supple body, echoing the wine's varietals character, exotic and honeyed bliss, floral notes, hints of flint and citrus, delivering several complex layers that transform as they evolve in the glass, the finish is dry with lots of acidity and pleasantly fresh.

2012 Ermacora Pinot Bianco Colli Orientali del Friuli
Review Date: 3-20-2014
Here is one our most popular wineries from Colli Orientali del Friuli, just a few miles from the Slovenian border. I just tasted all of the new Ermacora wines and the first two things I have written down are OMG & Wow! Perfectly balanced, this wine has incredible depth and concentration with focus, there is ripe apples and pears with minerals on the front palate and is very rich and creamy on the mid-palate, great length on the finish. Serve with grilled chicken diablo or a seafood risotto.

2012 Ermacora Friulano Colli Orientali del Friuli
Review Date: 3-20-2014
One of our BEST VALUE wines at K & Lís! As most of you know this wine from past vintages and itís been too long since we had this wine in a let me just put it plain and simple IT ROCKS! This ďFriulanoĒ is full body ( a little crisper than past vintages) with ripe pear and red apple on the palate and on the very long finish I find a hint of almond, balanced with crisp acidity and is very aromatic with great length. This will work great with a cornucopia of vegetarian dishes.
