2011 Fossil Point Edna Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 6-26-2014
We have seen a tremendous amount of good Chardonnay coming from the Edna Valley region over the last couple of vintages. Fossil Point needs to be included in that group. Light cedar and a touch of butter married well with bright tropical fruit, and a lovely touch of acidity rounds it out. This is a wonderful Chardonnay for the price and should be enjoyed over the next 1-2 years.

2012 DuMol Russian River Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 6-26-2014
Dumol offers you a tasty treat with this 2012 Chardonnay. Winemaker Andy Smith has been weaving magic at Dumol for 14 years, but the 2012 wines could be his masterpiece. Power and finesse combine nicely. The bright fruit is wrapped with soft acidity and just a touch of cedar. Apple, pear and a hint of melon with lovely hints of spice. A touch of mineral is found throughout. A wine that can age 2-3 years or opened tonight and enjoyed as well.

2012 DuMol Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Review Date: 6-26-2014
We have been waiting with bated breath for many of the 2012 wines to hit the market and the 2012 Dumol wines are at the top of many a list. The Pinot Noir explodes out of the glass with lovely red fruits and rose petals with just a touch of clove and cinnamon. The mouth bursts with ripe red fruits, cola, cinnamon, mushroom and a touch of cedar. This is a wine with great backbone and balance, a wine of amazing grace and style. It's one of the prettiest wines I have tasted in a long time and probably the best Russian River Pinot Noir I have tasted from Dumol. Andy Smith has found the promise land with this one. The wine is approachable right away but can age for 3-5 years. Dumol followers will be very pleased. If you haven't tasted the wines before, now is the time.

2012 Evening Land Arroyo Grande Valley Chardonnay
Review Date: 6-26-2014
Tally Vineyard fruit. Check. Soshi Moorman, winemaker. Check. 2012 Vintage. Check. The only thing wrong with this wine would be the price you would have to pay. $ 15.99. Check. There isn't a reason in the world not to buy this wine. Apple and pear notes with just hints of citrus, vanilla and cedar. A touch of acidity rounds out the beautiful balance. A fantastic value which we sell out very quickly.

2012 Kirkham Peak Santa Lucia Highlands Pinot Noir
Review Date: 4-15-2014
A wine made for us by a respected winery that we are huge fans of. This is a bright, rich wine with lovely red fruit, baking spice, leather and cinnamon. A fruit forward wine with a nice backbone to give it balance. An excellent example of the 2012 vintage from the Santa Lucia Highlands.

Campeňn K&L Exclusive Blanco Tequila 750ml
Review Date: 9-1-2013
I love tequila but tend to drink Reposado. This Blanco, made exclusively for K&L, is a treat. Pure and clean with hints of citrus and spice. The finish of pepper and spice is something truly special, that you don't get from most of the blanco in this market. Great for blending but much better just sipping. Get it while you can.

Deligeroy Cremant de Loire Brut
Review Date: 5-22-2011
A delightful sparkler for $ 11.99. Chenin Blanc and chardonnay combine for lovely aromatics and lovely freshness on the palate. A treat for the price.
