Jeff has been a member of the sales staff in our Redwood City store for the past four years. His first introduction to wine was as a waiter in an upscale Italian restaurant in Hanover, NH more years ago than he likes to admit. He slowly made his way west to wine country, working his way across the US as a graduate student in geography, a public sector researcher in regional economic development, and briefly, in the wake of the Anderson-Enron scandal, a records management coordinator for one of the remaining Big Five accounting firms. Finally, surrendering to the inevitable, he accepted a position in the wine business here at K&L. His goals for the next four years include drinking more wines from Italy and France and trying to limit the number of open bottles on the dinner table on any given night to fewer than six.

1996 Lanessan, Haut-Médoc
Review Date: 5-20-2008
The 1996 vintage in Bordeaux was an excellent one for cabernet sauvignon. Since about 75% of the property at Château Lanessan is planted to that varietal, the vintage played to its strengths. I tasted this wine a couple of years ago and it was completely closed and unyieldingly tannic. I recently had the opportunity to taste the wine again, and I was surprised by how much it had evolved. The nose showed floral, almost candied notes, like a violet pastille. Ripe red fruits - red currant and sour cherry. Tannins still firm. The wine is still a bit young, even now, but represents an excellent short-term cellar proposition.
