King's Ginger Liqueur 750ml
Review Date: 11-17-2011
Fans of fresh grated ginger rejoice! This is the stuff for you! No cloying stickiness here, just lots of spice and real ginger heat. Made with 20 year old Glenrothes, and macerated with real fresh ginger root- just add soda!
St. George Terroir Mt. Tam Gin 750ml
Review Date: 11-15-2011
Having read Melissa and David's reviews of this gin, I was excited but rather dubious in approaching it- how could it be so expressive of the terrior of Northern California? I poured it over ice, added some Fevertree Tonic water and a splash of lime and BAM! Hands down the most incredible experience of drinking in the landscape I love so much! Bay laurel, damp redwood, eucalyptus, wild fennel & dill- this California girl is enraptured!
Michel Loriot "Selection" Extra Brut Champagne
Review Date: 11-14-2011
I admit it- I'm new to the grand world of champagne. Gary Westby, champagne guru here at K&L, has begun my champagne education with a bang with this incredible Direct Import from Michel Loriot. Delicate bubble structure, delightful fruit-driven nose, continuing on the palate with a light, crisp finish. Great acidity, nice minerality. Elegant and refined, it showcases the best of champagne. Gorgeous- a must-have for celebrations and anniversaries!
2002 Bruno Michel "Cuvee Millésime" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 11-4-2011
WOW. Big wow. This 2002 vintage champagne is earthy, mushroom-y, woodsy and complex. Great acidity: like a mouth-watering tart green apple! Think risotto with mushrooms and asparagus, a hearty chicken pot pie with fat chunks of potato & veggies, or crab stuffed mushrooms as an appetizer- this wine will shine and make you look GOOD as the host! Snap it up for elegant entertaining this winter!
Philippe Gonet "3210" Extra Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Review Date: 10-22-2011
Now, I may be letting the cat out of the bag, but Gary Westby let us all in on the meaning of the "3210" on the label. 3 years on the lees, 2 vineyards that the fruit is from, 1 varietal (Chardonnay), and 0 dosage! Bright and razor sharp, with great minerality and a mouth-watering apple pie taste. I fall further in love with zero dosage champagnes every day!
Törley "Fortuna" Doux
Review Date: 10-15-2011
I have always been a fan of Moscato d'Asti, and this Hungarian sparkler is a beautiful choice for something new. As our notes indicate, it is a blend of Muscat Lunel, Muscat Ottonel, and Irsai Olivér. It is floral & pretty, white flowers and apricots in the nose and on the palate. Low in alcohol at 7%, this crisp and fresh sparkler will be a holiday favorite in my house! Cheers to good Fortune!
San Venanzio Prosecco Brut
Review Date: 9-5-2011
Bright citrus & apple nose, lovely minerality. A clean and refreshing prosecco for your summer entertaining! I'm thinking fresh black figs wrapped in proscuitto, tiny goat cheese & fontina grilled cheese sandwiches, and musk melon cooled in a creek. Delicious!
La Caudrina "La Selvatica" Asti
Review Date: 7-4-2011
A soft, mildly sweet Moscato d'Asti with light floral aromas. A pleasant choice (best when chilled) to enjoy on its own or for a sunny Sunday brunch on the terrace with friends!
St. Germain Elderflower Liqueur 750ml
Review Date: 7-4-2011
Drinking St. Germain is like drinking liquid flowers! Subtle, sweet and captivating. Who knew that hand-picked elderflowers from the French Alps could be so lovely? Delicious with Gran Cava champagne with a curly twist of orange, even more amazing with soda on the rocks! I served St. Germain with soda and fresh watermelon juice at a springtime cocktail party, and could hardly keep up with the demand! My absolute favorite spirit for spring and summer!
