2013 Cep (Peay Vineyards) "Hopkins Ranch" Russian River Valley Sauvignon Blanc
Review Date: 4-18-2014
I have been a fan of the Cep (Peay Vineyards) wines for a few years and this Sauvignon Blanc reaffirms my allegiance! There is so much to love about this wine as it is bursting with lots of acid, green apple, citrus, stone fruit and white flowers. There is a chalky mouthfeel that is a pleasant surprise coming from the Russian River Valley. This will be a good one to stock up on for summer!

Launois "Quartz" Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne
Review Date: 2-5-2014
Wow this is a fun Champagne! If you love Launois Champagnes like I do, please note that the “Quartz” is different than their traditional richer style, but equally well made. Zesty acidity with a touch of citrus and white peach livens up your taste buds. This Champagne is light and crisp, yet elegant with notes of soft creamy mousse to balance everything out.

Bruno Michel "Les Roses" Brut Rosé Champagne
Review Date: 10-17-2013
The Bruno Michel Les Roses will speak to red wine lovers. The characteristics are so similar to a Pinot Noir such as ripe cherry, orange peel, earth and spice. This has the stuffing to pair with many foods. While this is not a Champagne for every palate, it is a special treat for some of us!

2005 Launois "Spécial Club" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne (ships as 1.5L)
Review Date: 10-17-2013
Wow this is decadent Champagne! I loved the 2004 Launois Special Club, but the 2005 is even better in my opinion. Confection flavors of vanilla cupcake frosting, gram cracker, hazelnut, peaches and cream. This is a great choice for the holidays, or any night you want a special treat.

Bruno Michel Premier Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Review Date: 9-25-2013
The Bruno Michel Premier Cru Brut Blanc de Blancs is a Champagne that continues to stand out in our staff tastings. I’m in love with the crisp and bright citrus and apple notes. There is a note of toasted bread, but it is well balanced in focused and complex Champagne. Perhaps the best part of this Blanc de Blancs is that it tastes like it should be drank during a special occasion, but priced to drink on any occasion.

2010 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc
Review Date: 9-20-2013
For as young as this wine is, it is already showing its great potential. This wine is already displaying elegant floral aromas and blue fruit, with integrated juicy tannins. I look forward to laying down the 2010 Cantemerle for a minimum of 5 years, and enjoying it for many years following!

2010 NXNW Columbia Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Review Date: 9-19-2013
This Cabernet has a lot of structure on for $20! Plentiful dark fruits, spice, mint, anise, and tobacco will entice your taste buds. This is one of those rare K&L treasures that you will be happy you took a chance on. Buy some before it’s gone!

Campeòn K&L Exclusive Blanco Tequila 750ml
Review Date: 8-24-2013
This Tequila is so clean, smooth and exciting; I will be comparing this to all other Blanco's from now on. I recommend either sipping this by itself or with a little lime and agave nectar, but nothing more. You don't want to miss out on the complex subtle lime, minerals, and pepper characteristics. Delicioso!

2012 Bishop's Peak San Luis Obispo Pinot Noir
Review Date: 8-24-2013
We are FINALLY seeing some nice, easy drinking Pinot Noirs under $20 and this is one of them! This wine is loaded with juicy cherry, orange zest, cola, and a hint of white pepper. It's a great everyday drinking Pinot and I'm stocking up!

Fleury Brut Rosé Champagne
Review Date: 6-13-2013
If you love Brut Rose Champagnes as much as I do, then you HAVE to try this one from Fleury! With notes of elegant strawberry, vanilla and spice, all wrapped up with balanced acidity. To sweeten the deal, Fleury is a direct import, so this elegant Champagne is a great value!

2011 Palmina Santa Barbara County Malvasia Bianca
Review Date: 4-3-2013
One whiff of this Malvasia Bianca, and I imagined myself lounging on a tropical beach sipping on this delicious wine! Aromas of tropical fruits and white flowers leap out of the glass, carrying on to the palate with a creamy, yet lively acidic mouth feel. I will be drinking a lot of this wine this summer!
