2006 Ferrero Brunello di Montalcino
Review Date: 10-21-2011
Tucked way down in the southwest corner of Montalcino, the wines of Ferrero tend towards a more opulent, rich, round style. I was very impressed with the 2006 when I tasted it earlier this year at the estate. If you're new to Brunello and used to modern reds from California, this is a great introduction to the region (and an insane value I might add). CM, LA Italian wine specialist

Launois "Cuvée Reserve" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Review Date: 07-28-2011
This is another scratch my head in wonder deal. In fact, and this is a bold statement, this could be the greatest deal in the store. Wait... bold statement is an understatement, as we have so many head scratching "yougottabefrigginkiddinme" deals is this store. But alas, I think it might be. This could hold its own in a blind tasting with bottles of bubbles two, three or even four times this price. Hell, five times. I implore you to give it a try.

Maui Brewing Company "Bikini Blonde Lager" Hawaii 12oz Cans
Review Date: 07-22-2011
I started working here at K&L about 18 months ago. The only thing that scares me more than trying to calculate how many cans of this I've consumed since that start date, which is also the point at which I discovered this insanely delicious brew, is how much Fernet Branca I drank in the decade I was in San Francisco. I "heart" this beer! CM

Sorelle Bronca Prosecco DOCG
Review Date: 06-19-2010
The Bronca sisters knock it out of the park with this wine. I went to a Prosecco Consorzio tasting in San Francisco a few years back and dutifully tasted well over a hundred different Proseccos and this one was easily in the top five (and the least expensive of those; by half, in fact, in one instance!) This is the sole Prosecco imported by famed Italian agent Oliver McCrum, who insists the extra dry style is the only way to truly express the beautiful pear blossom and white peach inherent in the grape. I couldn't agree more Mr. McCrum, so, Mr (or Miss) Customer, please try this bottle of bubbles and experience one of the best examples of this exceptionally lovely wine, a perennial favorite of yours truly, by the way. Salud! CM
