2013 Zaca Mesa Santa Ynez Valley Chardonnay (Elsewhere $14)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Tart aromas of sour cream, yogurt, candied lime and pressed quince show on the nose of this stylishly structured Chardonnay. The palate carries the theme forward, with pithy pink grapefruit notes, lime ade and brie rinds, showing firm tension on the tongue and bound-up energy that will keep this bottle alive for years.

95 points Bob Campbell: "Dense and decadent red with dark berry, plum, chocolate, vanilla, liquorice and a suggestion of spicy oak. Very impressive wine from an outstanding vintage where Merlot was the star, at least at a regional level. Fruit flavours are supported by soft, chewy tannins. Approachable now but with obvious cellaring potential. Great value at this price." 95 points Sam Kim: "This is impressively fruited on the nose displaying dark plum, blueberry, mixed spice, smoked meat and cedar notes on the nose, followed by a dense palate that is focused and silky with abundance of ripe fruit fla ...Read More »

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

2014 Veronique Anne Perret Vin de Savoie Apremont (Previously $15)

The village of Apremont once sat in the shadow of a great mountain. In 1248 that mountain collapsed destroying everything in its path. Apremont means "bitter mountain" taking its name from the tragic event that occurred. Now, the mountain itself was made of limestone which is some of the best geological material for growing grapes. The site is littered with limestone scree (broken rock fragments). The grape of choice for the region is Jacquere and some of the best comes from this village.

The 2013 Amphitheater is a classic Varner Chardonnay built on phenolic intensity and plenty of savory/floral notes that add nuance, while the fruit is pushed a bit into the background.

Back in August of last year I was approached by Anne Marie Coyne-Kashkooli, the daughter of Thomas Coyne, who was curious if we were interested in buying a large lot from the Thomas Coyne Winery.

They were wines of zero pretense, full of charm and ease--so I was all ears. Turned out Thomas, who had been the moving force of the winery, had passed away... Read More »

91 points Wine Spectator: "This is elegant, revealing kirsch, raspberry, licorice and earth flavors, framed by oak spice. Fine-grained tannins prevail on the lingering finish. Drink now through 2020. 250 cases imported." (4/2016) James Suckling: "A red with earth and berry aromas and flavors. Some cedar tones too. Medium body. Drink now." (10/2015) K&L Notes: Il Favot is made from younger vine plantings (under 15 years) in Bussia. resulting in a declassified but high-quality bottling. It was aged for 18 months in barriques instead of the 26-30 months in casks for Conterno's classified Barolos.

2013 Trinitas Cellars "Old Vine" Mendocino Zinfandel (Previously $20)

From the producer: "The nose reminds us of fall, with bright ripe cranberry notes, hints of forest, brown sugar, golden brown marshmallows, and cinnamon. This Zinfandel has a dominant presence right when it hits the front palate, which leads into a broad mid palate and enjoyable mouthwatering finish. The acidity perfectly balances out the bright fruit from the core and makes this wine perfect for food pairings or enjoying on its own."
