2012 Cantine Ascheri Barolo

94 points Wine Spectator: "Licorice, cherry and tar notes mark this intense, chewy red, packed with sweet fruit midpalate that offsets the dense, dusty tannins. Shows fine integration and length, with the aftertaste echoing licorice, cherry, tar and mineral details. Best from 2019 through 2035." (7/2016) 92 points James Suckling: "A red with lots of ripe fruit such as plum, strawberry and leather both on the nose and palate. Full body, velvety tannins and a fresh finish. Drink or hold."

2013 Reyneke Sauvignon Blanc Stellenbosch (Biodynamic) (Elsewhere $25)

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2013 Sauvignon Blanc comes from three vineyards, predominantly whole-bunch pressed in order to settle as clean as possible, fermentation in 300-liter used barrels where the lees can be worked and limit sulfur for six months. It has a fine, tense and slightly chalky bouquet with touches of Mirabelle coming through. The palate is crisp on the entry with a fine line of acidity. Good tension here, very nicely focused and refined with hints of almond and walnut toward the finish. Very fine."

2013 Green & Red "Tip Top Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel

94 points Wine & Spirits: "Jay Heminway got his start in Bordeaux as a college student in the 1960s, working a summer with Alexis Lichine. He founded Green & Red in the eastern hills of Napa Valley in the 1970s, focused on zinfandel. This wine grows at the highest vineyard on the estate, topping out at 1,800 feet, where he planted a northeast-facing slope in the late 1990s. It’s a fruit-driven zin, the freshness and sunny aspects pointed up by his team’s work at the new sorting table installed in 2013. All that fruit seems to glow from within, surrounded by scents of bay and wild ...Read More »

Better in 2018 but already a joy to taste." (1/2016) 90-92 points Vinous: "Clos du Val's 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon is a pretty wine with lovely balance and an understated personality to match.

Complex perfume of dark cherry, raspberry, earth, herbs, lavender, sandalwood and woodsmoke. Supple but juicy and tangy, with terrific spicy, peppery, herbal lift from a percentage of whole-cluster vinification.

2013 Kingston Family Vineyards/K&L Pinot Noir Casablanca Valley (Previously $18)

Coming from a single, small tank of press wine from their Casablanca Valley vineyards, located close to the cooling influence of the Pacific, this is delicious Pinot Noir! Brightly fruited, and bolstered by firm tannins that provide structure without distraction, I would be hard pressed to think of a tastier, more honest expression of Pinot, especially if what you are after is a highly drinkable wine that does not aim to be the biggest, the most fruity or the most highly awarded. This is a great deal in everyday Pinot! (Joe Manekin, K&L Chilean wine buye... Read More »

Then juicy and fresh on the palate, with ripe red fruit and spice flavors nicely supported by silky tannins and vibrant acidity. Finishes with a whiplash of red berries, cherry syrup and minerals. With its early accessibility and considerable uncomplicated appeal, this is hard to put down. I especially like the fact that it's unmistakably from Castelnuovo dell'Abate in its opulent red fruit and spice aromatic and flavor profile." (7/2013)

Having purchased Private Reserves for many years, I can attest that they age incredibly well. The 1991, one of the great successes of that vintage, is still aging beautifully at nearly 25 years of age.

For the last two years we've had the distinct pleasure, and honor, of being able to blend our own Chardonnay with the team at Talley Vineyards. Last year this bottling was a huge success with our customers and we think it is every bit as good this year. Just like last vintage the 2014 comes from Talley's non-contiguous Oliver's Vineyard located in the Edna Valley.

97 points Vinous: "The 2012 Flaccianello della Pieve, a selection of the estate's best fruit, presents a darker, more virile expression of Sangiovese. Here, too, the purity of the flavors is truly striking. Cinnamon, cloves, new leather, licorice and plums are some of the notes that soar from the glass. The 2012 is full-bodied and voluptuous, in classic Flaccianello style, but the new French oak is much better integrated than it often is at this stage, the result of a move to lower toast levels over the last few years.

2013 Luna Beberide Mencía Bierzo (Previously 14)

91 points Wine & Spirits: "Mencía at its best can be sweetly ripe while still tasting as vibrant and juicy as this wine does. It's full of crisp red fruit and nuanced spice-eminently drinkable. In fact, there's little better to accompany charcuterie." (10/2014) 90 points Vinous: "Bright violet color. Lively and focused on the nose, displaying scents of red berries, cherry pit, licorice and fresh flowers. Tangy redcurrant and bitter cherry flavors show very good depth and put on weight with aeration. Clean, minerally and precise, with strong closing thrust and lingering spiciness. (JR)" (9/2014) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The entr ...Read More »

2013 Mer Soleil "Silver-Ceramic Bottle" Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay (Previously $20)

From the winery: "Monterey County is one of the best appellations in the world for producing Chardonnay. This region benefits from cool morning fog and afternoon breezes that result in a long growing season, producing intense fruit flavors balanced with vibrant acidity. Mer Soleil Silver is a pure, clean expression of our estate-grown Santa Lucia Highlands Chardonnay. The grapes that go into this Chardonnay are of the highest quality for a number of reasons: the unique climate, our vineyard location on east-facing slopes, vine-to-vine uniformity, low-yie...

2009 Seresin "Reserve" Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough (Biodynamic) (Previously $40)

95 points Bob Campbell: "Is this New Zealand's priciest Sauvignon? Old vine fruit was whole-bunch pressed and fermented with wild yeasts, 30% in old French oak barriques for five months. The result is an intense and complex wine with a great, mouth-filling texture. Assertive yeast and oak characters. Great food wine. It's a bold statement that moves well away from the typical Marlborough style." (11/2010) 92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Bright yellow. Passion fruit and gingery oak spices on the nose, complicated by a sweaty saline character (from the wild yeasts?). Rich, ripe, tactile and sweet, with an almost g ...Read More »

2002 Gosset "Celebris" Vintage Extra Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2002 Gosset "Celebris" Vintage Extra Brut Champagne

96 points Vinous: "Magnificent in its complexity and pure breeding, the 2002 Extra Brut Celebris has it all. The Extra Brut style confers the signature Gosset drive, while extended time on the lees has given the wine just enough texture and body to fill out nicely. In the meantime, the aromas and flavors have mellowed into those that are typical of Champagne entering the first plateau of its maturity. The 2002 is vinous, fleshy and super-expressive, yet retains striking freshness throughout. Candied lemon peel, apricot jam, honey, mint, spices and sage form a compelling fa ...Read More »

2013 Carpe Diem Anderson Valley Chardonnay (Previously $19)

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Unusually dry and crisp, this gives up tangy green apple, kiwi and lemon flavors backed by electric acidity, rather light body and a touch of enervating astringency that’s unusual in a white wine. Fresh oysters, please." (2/2015) Connoisseurs Guide: "Bright and brisk from the outset and a wine that reins in ripeness without sacrifice of keen Chardonnay fruit, this tangy offering is true to the racy Carpe Diem style and sports plenty of acid yet never wanders into lemony austerity. It shows a nice sense of polish and is complete without being big and bold, and it will make a fi ...Read More »

1997 Clynelish 18 Year Old Hepburn's Choice K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml) (Previously $130)

We're as obsessed with Clynelish here in the K&L spirits department as we are with Benrinnes, which is why we've locked down yet another cask of the beloved distillery's whisky in this latest shipment. While Clynelish is widely considered a connoisseur's choice for top-notch single malt whisky, its appreciated attributes aren't always apparent to the unseasoned drinker. What makes Clynelish so special (and a favorite among famous blending houses like Johnnie Walker and Compass Box) is the rather diminutive profile of light vanilla, lemon zest, heather, a...
