Gazela Vinho Verde
Review Date: 3-30-2012
Summer is upon us. In Southern California we need a pool side white! Gazela is the ticket. Amazing price, for a classic Vinho Verde. Aromatic with tropical fruit and citrus notes. Don't forget that great Vinho Verde fizz that makes it so refreshing on those hot summer days.
Ariston Aspasie "Carte Blanche" Brut Champagne
Review Date: 2-27-2012
This is my kind of Champagne! Toasty, yeasty, and dry. The price speaks for itself! We are so lucky to get great champagne at sparkling wine prices!
Ariston Aspasie Brut Rosé Champagne
Review Date: 2-26-2012
This my friends is my go to Rose Champagne! Great acidity, intermingled with some bright cherry notes. Balanced minerality which is perfect for some salmon or Friday night sushi!
2007 Viña Eguía Reserva Rioja
Review Date: 2-9-2012
First thing that came to mind - what kind of lamb am I going to have this with? Great nose of vanilla, coconut and balsamic. But it was the great fruit and tannins that had me running for the market. Trust me grab a bottle you won't be disappointed!
2004 Miguel Merino Gran Reserva Rioja
Review Date: 1-8-2012
This was such a hit at my recent tasting!! This bottle went up against some of the major house's in Rioja and Ribera del Duero. Thanks to Joe this is a direct import for K&L! From three vineyards, two planted in 1931 and the third “La Loma”- planted in 1946. Only the best hand harvested grapes go into this bottle. Beauitful sweet red fruit and a great backbone minerality! Perfect for any pork dish! Enjoy!
2009 Vie di Romans "Flors di Uis" Friuli Isonzo
Review Date: 12-30-2011
Vie di Romans is one of the jewels of Italy's Friuli zone and the 'Flors di Uis' represents their impressive Bianco made from Malvasia, Friulano (Tocai) and Riesling. This intriguing white offers up scents of stony minerals, soft orchard fruits and florals and a round flavorful palate with ample underlying acidity and impressive length. This is a wine of impeccable purity that is sure to impress. Pair with seafood, vegetable dishes and white meats.
Deligeroy Cremant de Loire Brut
Review Date: 11-25-2011
In our recent staff tasting for sparkling wines. This by far was top of the class! I brought it to start the Thanksgiving Day events. Deligeroy did not disappoint! It went perfect with the root salad!
Michel Loriot "Selection" Extra Brut Champagne
Review Date: 11-10-2011
Extra, extra! Michel Loriot extra brut is extra good!
Deligeroy Crémant de Loire Brut Rosé
Review Date: 2-3-2011
This is well-balanced in the mouth and enhanced by a fresh but subtle finish. It also has tiny little bubbles, which always makes me happy! I love Cabernet Franc for sparkling wine, it has some great body and lovely fruit. For the price, buy a case!
Victory Brewing Co. "Hop Wallop" IPA, Pennsylvania 12oz
Review Date: 12-30-2010
Hop Wallop is so named for a reason. If you love hops, you will love this beer.
Franck Bonville "Brut Selection" Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Review Date: 7-29-2010
For me, one of the best finds at our recent Champagne tasting! It's off-dry, with beautiful fruit and a nice toasty nose. All this from third generation winemaking family whose holdings consist of 15 hectares of Grand Cru vineyards. The winemaking here is all about elegance and finesse and allowing the terroir to speak for itself and it shows.
