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.

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!

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. So… pull the cork a few hours before you throw pork roast on the Q’ and enjoy the first days of spring.

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 Friulano Colli Orientali del Friuli
Review Date: 3-20-2014
One of our BEST VALUE wines at K & L’s! As most of you know this wine from past vintages and it’s been too long since we had this wine in a let me just put it plain and simple IT ROCKS! This “Friulano” 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.

Daniel Ginsburg "Grande Reserve Sous Bois" Brut Champagne

2009 Viña Eguía Reserva Rioja
Review Date: 2-4-2014
There is plenty of fruit, good acidity, soft tannin structure, some minerality and a lengthy finish. The combination of blue/dark fruit and the black cherry comes from the Tempranillo. I also find some tar and roses on the lengthy finish.

2006 Terre da Vino "Essenze" Barolo

It’s BACK !! Grab it while you can. Ripe and laced with tobacco and gravel flavors as well as the leather and tar. Would drink now and over the couple of years.

Montechiara Prosecco DOC
Review Date: 2-28-2013
Italian bubbles for ten bucks, what did we just step back in time? Nope just another Great bargain wine from K & L! This is the perfect wine for all your spring holiday parties, for there is nothing better than Prosecco, for crowd pleasing and value. This has a light straw yellow hue and has a fine mousse and delicate, with a long-lasting bead. On the nose you will find generous fruit, releasing hints of pear and nectarines. The palate has wonderful balance and elegance, dry & crisp, but admirable fullness and length, closely mirroring the nose. Buy a case; these make great gifts as well.

2011 Corte Rugolin Valpolicella Classico
Review Date: 2-21-2013
Elena and Frederico Coati, a brother and sister team who make dynamite wines, are responsible for this great and affordable wine, they make sensational wine at every level. This is their basic level Valpolicella, but there is nothing basic about this wine. It is full-bodied and elegant and aromatic and has great balance classic fruitiness with an excellent finish (and only 12.5 alcohol, yes, someone remembers how to do that). Perfect for spring evenings and delicate pasta or a roasted chicken.

Ca de Medici "Terra Calda" Lambrusco

it’s back!!! And Wooohooo. Greg and I discovered this winery at VinItaly many years ago and found the distributor and introduced this to many happy clientele (we sold a lot of this) then it stop coming into California, a very sad day. I missed this Lambrusco, very dry, some cherry cola and lots of spice, the prefect wine for the last days of summer.
