Oh Gran Reserva, how I love thee...This gorgeous 1999 from Puelles is in the absolutely perfect spot for drinking! Stewed red cherry, red currant, leather, earth, spice, licorice, and mineral with silky, elegant tannin & medium plus acid. An excellent example of Gran Reserva for $20? Are you nuts!? Stock up now!

2012 Carballal "Sete Cepas" AlbariŮo Rias Baixas
Review Date: 7-15-2013
The newest vintage from the family at Carballal does not disappoint! Juicy white peach, white flowers, saline, mineral, chalk with hints of texture from the few months the wine spent on its lees. Medium plus acidity. Easy and delish! What a value!

2012 Zudugarai "Amats" Getariako Txakolina
Review Date: 7-15-2013
HELLO, DELICIOUS! It's official- I'm a Txakoli drinker. Hands down. No contest. This is the wine that sold me. Thank you, Joe! Apple, citrus, mineral with a cheesy saline quality that is mouth-watering and makes me reach for more. And more. And more. Racy acidity and super low alcohol at 10.5%! Get thee some cured meats, olives and Manchego cheese and go to town! You will not be sorry!

Michel Loriot "Authentic" Brut Champagne (previously Cuvee Reserve)
Review Date: 7-8-2013
Apple, pie crust toastiness, chalky minerality with a beautiful, persistent bead and balanced acidity. This is the real deal, folks. I love this 100% Meunier, insanely affordable Champagne! Thank you, Gary Westby!

2009 Au Bon Climat "Talley Vineyard-Santa Barbara Historic Vineyards Collection" San Luis Obispo County Chardonnay
Review Date: 5-24-2013
This wine is demonstrative of Jim Clendenin's magical Chardonnay abilites. The Talley vineyards have been famous in their own right for many years for beautiful fruit. Au Bon Climat's bottling here is floral, feminine, vanilla, butter and coconut. Medium plus acidity keeps it from getting cloying, and the balance of tannin is soft and approachable. This is a really special wine that we are honored to sell.

2012 Cave de Tavel "Lauzeraies" Tavel
Review Date: 5-21-2013
It's finally back! The Tavel rose you all have been waiting for! Plush grenache fruit of raspberry and red cherry, with hints of lush spice. Medium acidity and super refreshing. Bring on the poolside or picnic appetizers! YAY!

Rusty Blade K&L Exclusive "Cask A" Single Barrel Cask Strength Barrel-Aged Gin 750ml
Review Date: 5-15-2013
Fans of past bottlings of the Rusty Blade rejoice- this is your baby, back again! All that wonderful gingerbready goodness, clove, nutmeg and cinnamon with sweet juniper flashing through. Doesn't even really feel like Gin. Y-U-M!

Rusty Blade K&L Exclusive "Cask B" Single Barrel Cask Strength Barrel-Aged Gin 750ml
Review Date: 5-15-2013
Super nerdy Gin fans, this one's for you! Cinnamon, vanilla sweetness, with a funky saline-wet-sand-beach kelp thing happening. Richer mouthfeel than the "Cask A" for sure. A gin to stretch your intellect over a long afternoon!

2010 Saarloos & Sons "Hers" Santa Ynez Valley Grenache Blanc
Review Date: 4-8-2013
This STUNNING Grenache Blanc, "Hers" is made in honor of Keith Saarloos's grandmother. It is unlike any other Grenache Blanc I've tasted. Pear, citrus zest, lychee, mineral, with medium plus acidity and fabulous balance. RACY, racy, racy! AWESOME.

2011 Melville "Estate-Verna's" Santa Barbara County Syrah
Review Date: 3-26-2013
30% whole cluster fermentation is evident here- a perfumey, lavender, blackberry nose, with white pepper, blueberry, and an interesting asphalty/tar note. Medium plus acidity and medium tannin. Aged in neutral barrel, this is a great example of cool climate Syrah.

2008 Clendenen Family Vineyards "Le Bon Climat" Santa Maria Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 3-26-2013
Fans of rich, buttery, sweetness rejoice! The Le Bon Climat 2008 is for you! Apple, butter, citrus, with balanced alcohol and medium plus acidity. Still young, but with decanting and some food (lobster, anyone?) a very delicious wine.

2010 Claiborne & Churchill Edna Valley Pinot Noir
Review Date: 3-26-2013
The Pinot Noir referred to as "The Classic", a perfect expression of Pinot Noir varietal correctness. Red cherry, red currant, strawberry, spice with medium plus acidity & medium tannin. So easy to drink, you may just want to get this wine in large quantity for spring and summer entertaining. Grilled salmon or pork tenderloin, anyone? FABULOUS!

2011 Clos Pepe "Barrel Fermented" Sta. Rita Hills Chardonnay
Review Date: 3-19-2013
Apple, toast, slate, vanilla with medium plus acidity and interesting structure! Fermented in neutral barrels, and aged in just 7% new French oak. A wine to tuck away for a year, if you can!
