Staff Favorites

If you’re going to have Robert Parker or Stephen Tanzer over for dinner, selecting a wine they’ve rated highly will be a nice choice. However, when you’re buying wines for yourself, we’d love to see you find wines that match up your unique palate and pocketbook. We have a large staff of friendly and knowledgeable wine professionals that taste hundreds of wines each week. They can put you in touch with bottles that you are likely to love, often at a much lower cost than the highly-rated gems that often see a run-up in price and frequent availability issues. Like any great group of opinionated professionals, our staff has varied tastes themselves. Often our customers will find a particular staff member with a style that corresponds to their own. That concept works extremely well in our retail stores, and this section is our effort to bring you the same online. Don’t get us wrong, we love the highly rated wines from the press and will continue to offer them, but we think you’re missing out if you’re not augmenting those selections with picks from our excellent staff. Here are their favorites. (Click on a name to see their other selections - or to drop them a line.) Cheers!

2013 Claiborne & Churchill Central Coast Dry Muscat
By: Dulcinea Gonzalez | Review Date: 6/2/2015 | Send Email
Here’s an excellent wine to put into your Spring/ Summer repertoire . The Orange Muscat grapes are sourced from Santa Barbara County and fermented in 100% neutral French Oak to capture its intoxicating floral and Indian spice aromas. This light straw colored wine has a stimulating tang with layers of diverse flavors of preserved citrus, flowers and stone fruit with a long lasting dry finish. This would be excellent served as an apertif or simply drink alone for a refreshing sipper.

2013 Claiborne & Churchill Edna Valley Pinot Noir
By: Dulcinea Gonzalez | Review Date: 6/2/2015 | Send Email
Super Value Alert: This is a fine example of the quality Pinot Noir that encapsulates this region. Sourced from five different clones in two different vineyards in the Edna Valley where the grapes are kept cool by breezes from the Pacific Ocean and morning fog, the result is a traditional Burgundian-style Pinot Noir with a good dose of Central Coast afternoon sun. The nose is rich with cherry cola and cinnamon while the mid-palate bursts with a pop of dark red fruit layers of oak and spice. The finish is pretty, elegant and sustained with a soft tannic grip.

2013 Claiborne & Churchill Central Coast Pinot Gris
By: Dulcinea Gonzalez | Review Date: 6/2/2015 | Send Email
Here is a rich and succulent approach to Pinot Gris. 100% barrel fermented in neutral oak and aged on the lees, the wine takes on an almost resin character mixed with faint spiced-honey, white nectarine and lemon notes. The body is silky and creamy with a crisp acidity in the background that gives the wine luxurious depth and a mouth-watering finish. This would make the perfect antidote for any rich seafood based dishes.

2013 Claiborne & Churchill Central Coast Gewürztraminer
By: Dulcinea Gonzalez | Review Date: 6/2/2015 | Send Email
True to its varietal, this Gerwurtztraminer offers a tropical and floral perfume reminiscent of lychee, guava and grapefruit. This wine is as much a pleasure to smell as it is to drink. On the mid-palate the sweetness of fruit mixes with just the right acidity to balance out this full-bodied white. This would pair perfectly with variety of cuisine. Try it with Middle Eastern, Moroccan or Asian dishes that have nuts, dried fruits and roasted meats.

2013 Claiborne & Churchill Central Coast Riesling
By: Dulcinea Gonzalez | Review Date: 6/2/2015 | Send Email
Made from a hand-harvested blend of Monterey County and Edna Valley fruit, the wine is whole cluster pressed, and then partially fermented in cold tank and neutral French oak barrels. On the palate, the Riesling resonates with an aromatic blend of lime, honeycomb and stone fruit with a jolt of acid that awakens the senses. This is a food-perfect wine that is full-bodied with excellent texture and a rich, velvety mouthfeel. Try serving with Dungeness crab for a stellar pairing.

A very polished nose of berries, currants and graphite although a bit subdued at its very young age. The palate is quite profound with cocoa, blackberries, cherries, blackcurrants and pencil lead. Very fine tannins and perfect acidity. All of this making it an exquisite wine.

2014 Domaine Les Pins Bourgueil Rosé
By: Jacques Moreira | Review Date: 6/2/2015 | Send Email
A great example of what I call the "other" French rosé style. Most people are familiar with the Provençal style, but more people need to try the rosés from the north! The Loire Valley, better known for its whites, offers delightful rosés. The les Pins, made from Cabernet Franc grapes, has beautiful and delicate floral aromatics. On the palate we have the red grapefruit, spices, dry rose petals with a juicy acidity, and dry finish. This wine would be fantastic with any summery/outdoor dishes, seafood pasta, salads, and even light meats. Explore!

2010 Bellaria Brunello di Montalcino
By: Greg St. Clair | Review Date: 6/2/2015 | Send Email
The nose on this wine is sweet and savory full of spiced plum, wild herbs and a hint of the Tuscan dust. In the mouth the wine is expansive and seemingly fills every corner with a luxurious and full body. The flavors are once again the plum but less spice and more wildness this time, the savory component seems to remain on the palate for a longer time than the rich fruit. The finish is long, flavorful and so well balanced the tannins seem almost not to be there, but they are, just in complete harmony. So approachable now it’s hard to resist drinking but it will grow in stature with a few more years.

2003 Krug Brut Champagne
By: Gary Westby | Review Date: 6/2/2015 | Send Email
I just tasted this fabulous Champagne with Olivier Krug when he stopped by K&L with some bottles. It is composed of 46% Pinot Noir, 29% Chardonnay and 25% Meunier and entirely barrel fermented. This wine is starting to flesh out with time, and has a spectacular full body, great texture, open knit toasty aromas and flavors and impressive power. This is a perfect partner to charcuterie, and given the history of the house, should age for decades.

The current batch of the Sous Bois from Billecart Salmon is based on the spectacular 2008 vintage, and the combination of richness from the all barrel vinification and the extraordinary acidity of the vintage makes for one of the most impressive bottles in their line. If you haven't tried this newest addition to the great line from Billecart, don't miss out, the 2008 based wine is very special!

2010 Belpoggio Brunello di Montalcino
By: Mike Parres | Review Date: 6/2/2015 | Send Email
This wine is 100% Sangiovese and a small marvel of class and power, especially when the vintage is taken into account. There is wonderful richness of fruit, which melds beautifully with the aristocratic oak, giving spicy scents which come through on the palate, too, right to this final licorice note. Dark-colored ruby with concentrated aromas of blackberries, dark cocoa powder and stony minerals. Full-bodied, with big dusty tannins; needs some air time.

The Comtes De Champagne is a benchmark blanc de blancs for a reason. Taittinger uses the best Grand Cru Chardonnay that they can get to make a small amount of the most decadent and age-worthy Champagne available. The 2005 is open knit and incredibly delicious now with plenty of toasty brioche and energetic citrus. It should also last quite a long time!

2007 Terre da Vino "Essenze" Barolo
By: Greg St. Clair | Review Date: 6/2/2015 | Send Email
The lushness of the 2007 vintage is readily apparent in this delicious, balanced and eminently drinkable Barolo. Classic flavors of tar and rose aromatics lie deep in the center of this wine surrounded by a veil of tannin that gives one the "classic" Barolo feel yet coupled with this vintage remains in balance and adds definition to the wine. While the wine is really drinkable it still is Barolo at heart and will be able to age well for another decade. Drinking so well now it's hard to resist!

On the mouth flavors of cherry and orange blossom shine through to a glowing and a "savor the moment" kind of finish.

2014 Turkey Flat Rosé Barossa Valley South Australia
By: Angie An | Review Date: 6/1/2015 | Send Email
Yes! It's finally that time of the year again! Rosé season and upon us once again and Turkey Flat is one of the new rosés you won't want to miss year this. 93% Grenache, 4% Shiraz, 2% Cabernet and 1% Dolcetto. Very juicy fruity, easy on the palate a round, rich texture. When a winery is named "Turkey Flat" you have to be a bit curious--turns out, when the vineyard was first planted in 1847 there used to be flocks of native bush turkey also known as "Australian Bastards" running around. I think Turkey Flat turns out to be a much proper alternative! The wine also has just the slightest hint of sweetness, which would pair awesome with fusion Japanese with some spices, drink up with your spicy tuna maki or dynamite roll!

2014 Big Flower (Botanica) Petit Verdot Rosé
By: Angie An | Review Date: 6/1/2015 | Send Email
What a cool rose! Seriously, this wine is too cool for school. Made by the lady who brought you Botanica (50 year old vines, dry-farmed Chenin Blanc from South Africa anyone?). Originally from California, Ginny Povall planted vines and grows flowers around her estate in Devon Valley. The rosé is sourced from her tiny plot of Petit Verdot around the estate. Only 200 cases were produced, and we are lucky enough to be the only merchant in the U.S. to carry a portion of this gem. It's super floral, with hints of chrysanthemum and Oolong tea leaf followed by a very clean finish. I think of dim sum with this wine, it's versatile enough to handle the endless flavor combination of dim sum yet elegant enough not to overpower the dishes. Writing this is making me crave some Fung zao (fried steamed chicken feet) with a bottle of big flower....

2010 Bodegas Puelles Crianza Rioja
By: Jim Barr | Review Date: 6/1/2015 | Send Email
Again, one of my favorite Rioja producers and this Crianza is a wine that warrants your attention. Produced from Tempranillo, this silky, lush, fleshy wine shows an opulent nose that is red fruit driven with a hint of spicy anise tones and a touch of cedary oak. This classic new-world style Rioja is bright, fleshy, and creamy on the palate, particularly in the mid-range, with excellent structure and acid backbone, and a lasting, deeply flavored finish. This Gem drinks well now but will continue to improve with another five to seven-plus years of cellaring. Rusty wants me bring home several cases of this Gem for our near-term enjoyment. Don’t miss this Rioja! ***** 14.0% ABV *****

Another great release from Sesta di Sopra. This is more than "baby Brunello". It is bright charming with subtlety and surprising depth.

Leopold Bros. Aperitivo 750ml
By: David Othenin-Girard | Review Date: 6/1/2015 | Send Email
Leopoldo Bros has always been ahead of the curve. They've pumped out some of the best craft whiskey around while creating innovative products like their wonderful liqueurs, gin, and literally the only legit flavored whiskey on the market. Now we're bringing you a new phase in the Leopold Bros' dominance of the craft market. Competing with established brands is hard enough, but when a craft distiller goes after a category creating legend like Campari, we begin to question their sanity. Lucky for us, Mr. Leopold's insanity is second only to magnificent skill and attention to detail. This is truly the first product to scratch that Campari lovers itch (and if you have it you know what I'm talking about - the stuff creates a serious dependence). It may be even more soothing than the original. At the very least you'll know that the ingredients are of the very highest quality, plus it's not even that expensive considering the work that it takes to make a product like this good on this scale. Must-buy for Campari lovers, must-try for those yet to get on the aperitivo train.

2012 Fattoria Petrolo Torrione Toscana
By: Greg St. Clair | Review Date: 6/1/2015 | Send Email
This superb example of Sangiovese’s blending ability, the dash of 15% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Sauvignon add just a little flesh and structure to Sangiovese’s core of brilliant cherry fruit. The winery sits outside of Chianti Classico on the eastern edge of the range of mountains that make up Chianti’s eastern border; here in a region without a known DOC Luca Sanjust took his passion into the vineyards to create really excellent wines. A portion of the wine is aged in barrique and tonneaux and then the rest in 40hl oak barrels for about 15 months. The results swirl out of your glass in waves of plum, cherry and touches of earth and spice; in the mouth, the wine gives a richly textured mouthfeel, smooth and soft but still has a Sangiovese backbone to lengthen and freshen the wine. The finish is superb, long, lingering and makes you look for your fork as you are attacking your favorite pasta!

This is no ordinary Cava. There is a good percentage of Pinot Noir and Chardonnay are used in the blend.

Mix that with clean fruit tones, a moderate amount of yeastiness and a classic Brut finish and you get one of K&L's best sparkling values.
