Growing from a Redwood City sales position in 2009, to the company sake buyer in 2011, and then to the Head Sommelier in 2013 my love of wine spreads the gamut from mineral laden Sancerres to California Zinfandels aged over 20 years, Urban wines to classic Bordeaux, and 99% of the spirits that we carry. As a CIA trained chef I spent 15 years in some of the top kitchens in the country until my love of wine won out and I transitioned to the wine industry in 2004 where I began utilizing my skills as an instructor, a writer, and a restaurant consultant after passing the introductory level exam of The Court of Master Sommeliers. In 2010, I developed the first iPhone app for wine pronunciation, the Enotria Guide. In 2011, I became one of the few certified Sake Sommeliers in the country through the Sake Education Council. Outside of K&L I run private and corporate wine and spirits events around the Bay Area, consult on private cellars, and attempt to write professionally.

2013 Proprieta Sperino "Rosa del Rosa" Piemonte
Review Date: 6-20-2014
Neat story about the worms! As a frontyard farmer in Oakland I probably would have bought this rose based on the story alone, but the truth is, this is a really great wine! 100% Nebbiolo, this is rich, ripe, balanced, and laced with white flowers. Like my abundant garden because of the worms. Get it? Full circle.

2013 Pascal Jolivet Sancerre Rosé
Review Date: 6-19-2014
Out of 17 roses in a recent tasting, this one really stood out. While I'm typically a fan of roses in the $10-$15 range, this one was a step above something I would happily chug my way through (after a long day, when it's hot out, the stuff is better than water). Stunning wine with mouth watering acidity, worthy of a well-orchestrated summer meal.

Bruno Michel Brut Rosé Champagne (1.5L)
Review Date: 6-19-2014
Wow, their loss is our gain! An incredible, rich and seductive rose champagne in magnum! This could probably cost twice as much given the quality and exclusivity. Good thing it comes in a super size, because one bottle would not be enough.

2013 Le Roc Fronton Rosé "La Saignée"
Review Date: 6-19-2014
A delicious rose. Spicy, angular, and begging for aggressive food. This is a southern French rose version of an Australian fighting wine. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RbOZccv9ym8

2013 Quinta das Arcas "Arca Nova" Rosé Vinho Verde
Review Date: 6-19-2014
As my husband astutely noted, "This is like a grownup version of a Jell-o shot". Nothing serious about this wine, but everything enjoyable. No corkscrew needed, just a good time.

Can Mayol Loxarel "999" Cava Brut Rosé Penedes
Review Date: 6-18-2014
Bright berry fruit on the nose, this will be great with a plate of custardy French Toast topped with a mix of macerated berries and a dollop of whipped cream.

Galda Cava Brut
Review Date: 6-18-2014
I am a sucker for cava. Seriously. A glass of bubbly at the end of the day can turn an otherwise lacking day wistfully around. A splash of bubbles in a cocktail gives it lightness and intrigue. A bottle mixed with some fresh fruit turns breakfast into brunch. This cava even has hints of crushed peaches on the palate to make it that much more desirable.

Bender's 7 Year Old Small Batch Rye Whiskey 750ml
Review Date: 6-18-2014
Nice and friendly Rye for those of us that enjoy Rye, but not the usual karate chop to the palate that can sometimes accompany it.

Bummer & Lazarus Gin 750ml
Review Date: 6-18-2014
This is an incredible new gin! Creamy, with nice citrus tones, floral, coriander, and green tea notes. This is going to be great with Small Hand Foods new tonic! #putadogonit

Traverse City Straight Bourbon Whiskey 750ml
Review Date: 6-18-2014
Do you have room in your liquor cabinet? Because I don't. Why does whisky have to be so, so delicious? This is yummy. Smooth, slightly smokey, and not cask strength! I'm going to have to convert the spare bedroom into K&L East Bay.

2012 Greywacke "Wild Sauvignon" Sauvigon Blanc Marlborough
Review Date: 6-18-2014
I would agree with the "wild" statement on the bottle, this is a very unique wine, equally bizarre and enjoyable. With such a rich texture, almost an umami quality is present, and a pronounced green note, not dissimilar to jalapenos. This has me wanting to make the cream cheese jalapeno poppers on the grill to be served at a Fourth of July party, or maybe a traditional Chile Relleno with smokey black beans.

DSP CA 162 Straight Vodka 750ml
Review Date: 6-18-2014
Really delicious, and very approachable in its neutrality. A blend of wheat vodka, and vodka made from Riesling and Viognier from Mendocino County.

2012 Saxon Brown "Hyde Vineyard" Carneros Chardonnay
Review Date: 6-18-2014
Deep, layered, and complex with well integrated oak.

2011 Odonata "Zayante Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountians Syrah
Review Date: 6-18-2014
Rich and layered with black fruit and spice. From organically farmed vineyards in the Santa Cruz mountains, the wines are made in an accessible style, that will also lend themselves to graceful aging.
Price: $25.99 Add To Cart BC 0

2012 Haden Fig "Bjornson Vineyard" Eola-Amity Hills Pinot Noir
Review Date: 6-17-2014
Big, rich, and juicy. This is a bit more substantial than the entry-level Pinot, but will likely age and improve over the next 3-5 years.
