2011 Qupé "Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard - K&L Selection" Edna Valley Syrah

Arguably the most popular of the co-branded wines with our staff last year was the 2010 version of this wine so it had a lot to live up to this year. The good news is the staff is every bit as excited about it this year and we hope that enthusiasm will rub off on you. Bob Lindquist was more than happy to work with us again this year and put together this 100% Syrah bottling from certified Demeter Bio-Dynamically grown vines in the cool Edna Valley Appellation.

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "A minty aroma wafts from this wine, fresh and herbal, intermingled with the smell of sun-warmed tomato leaves. In taste, cranberry and savory black tea surround soft layers of well-built acidity and subtle red cherry fruitiness. It’s an intriguing wine that gets better in the glass." (10/2014)90 points Wine Spectator: "The plum, black cherry and raspberry flavors are pure and intense, showing some finesse, with star anise, clove and black pepper details that crescendo on the finish. Drink now through 2018." (9/2013)

2011 Happy Canyon "K&L—Doug Margerum Cuvée" Happy Canyon Red Blend Top Pick!
2011 Happy Canyon "K&L—Doug Margerum Cuvée" Happy Canyon Red Blend

The wine is made up of 68% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot, 10% Cabernet Franc, and 2% Petit Verdot. It drinks well right now but should hold for several years. Members of the K&L staff had a chance to go down and spend a couple hours with Doug and his crew at the winery. The thought was to make a red blend from Happy Canyon, which K&L had never done before. Happy Canyon is the smallest AVA in Santa Barbara County. It lies north and west of Lake Cachuma and is home to six major vineyards: Cimarone, Grassini, Happy Canyon Vineyard, McGinley, Star Lane, and... Read More »

2011 Grgich Hills "Estate" Napa Valley Chardonnay (Previously $40)

Connoisseurs Guide: "The Chardonnays of Grgich Hills are rarely, if ever, wines that trade on high ripeness and richness, but this very lean, nearly wiry young wine flirts with suggestions of greenness and proves to be very tight-fisted at this point. While we like its freshness and its hard-to-miss vibrancy, we would be happier if it were a little more outgoing in fruit, but given the winery's track record for slow-to-unfold, long-aging white wines, we are willing to set this one aside for several years."

2011 Bogle "The Phantom" California Red Blend

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "A smooth mouthfeel and fresh, fruity flavors make this appealing and easy to enjoy, while a firm texture brings it into the tradtional dry-wine category. It combines blackberry and black cherry aromas and flavors, with hints of vanilla and nutmeg. It’s full bodied, lush and round in texture." (4/2015) K&L Notes: Among the best of the bold, but easy-drinking "red blends" that swept through the California wine scene in the past decade or so, Bogle's "Phantom" is styled on the old vine Zinfandel-based blends.

From Wine Enthusiast on the last vintage: "(#10 on their top 100 of 2014) Pinkish-gold in color, this lovely cuvée is a blend of 74% Pinot Noir and 26% Chardonnay, the winery’s take on a Blanc de Noirs. Fruity in peach, raspberry and blood orange, it is multi-faceted and complex, dry and elegant with a long finish that leans herbal, the acidity dialed perfectly right, gentle on the palate and memorable."

While I think you get the most bang for the buck from Steve’s more inexpensive whites and reds, his upper-tier Nebbiolos and blends certainly have unique characters and offer high quality."

Savory and incredibly perfumed in the glass, the 2011 captures the essence of this cool, late-ripening vintage in its mid-weight personality.

Hints of lavender and licorice develop in the glass as the wine gradually opens up. In 2011, the Howell Mountain Cabernet offers plenty of depth and resonance, but the tannins are quite tamed by Dunn standards, making it a delicious wine to drink earlier than other recent vintages.

2011 Ravenswood "Old Hill" Sonoma Valley Zinfandel (Previously $60)

Stains the palate with sappy boysenberry and cherry-cola flavors that spread out on the back half and pick up a suave floral pastille nuance.

From the winery: "Founded by the noble family behind Champagne Taittinger, Claude Taittinger's search for a worthy U.S. counterpart began in the late 1970s. In 1987 he selected a 138-acre parcel in the heart of Carneros, Napa Valley. Wisely selecting Eileen Crane to oversee the development of the winery and vineyards, the team created the quintessential California expression of the Taittinger style in Carneros."

It reminded Wolfgang Weber, one of our panelists, of hiking in the North Coast, "in the morning, when the sun burns off the dew and picks up the scents of plant resins."

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "* Cellar Selection * Impeccable elegance characterizes this vintage of the producer’s marquee Bordeaux-style blend, an expert finessing of 82% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec, 2% Merlot and 1% Cabernet Franc. Juicy in exotic black fruit, it stands tall, with silky, towering shoulders of herb, cardamom and clove that will coalesce beautifully over time. Hold through 2026."

2011 Stonestreet "Bear Point" Chardonnay Sonoma (Elsewhere $50) Top Pick!
2011 Stonestreet "Bear Point" Chardonnay Sonoma (Elsewhere $50)

92 points Antonio Galloni: "Orange blossoms, nectarines, white flowers and honey all flesh out in the 2011 Chardonnay Bear Point. Another wine that manages to be both rich but not ponderous, the 2011 Bear Point blossoms in all directions as the fruit opens up in the glass. A creamy, highly expressive finish rounds things out in style. The Bear Point is made from the 'Peter Michael' Chardonnay clone, which is believed to have originated on this property! --" (7/2013)92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Orange blossoms, nectarines, white flowers and honey all flesh out in the 2011 Chardonnay Bear Point.

2011 Keenan Napa Valley Merlot

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2011 Merlot reveals a wonderful smoky espresso-scented nose with a hint of black cherry liqueur. Medium-bodied and moderately colored, it is not terribly rich or profoundly deep, but it is lush, velvety and endearing. I suspect most wine consumers may prefer this Merlot to some of the more highly rated and concentrated vintages that require a few years of bottle age. This can be enjoyed in its first 3-4 years of life. (RP)" (10/2013) Wine Enthusiast: "Spicy plum and soft, smoky tannins characterize this Merlot, made from 80% estate-grown fruit from Spring Mountain and ...Read More »

2011 Palmina "Alisos" Santa Barbara County Sangiovese

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Vivid purple. Intense, spice-accented black and blue fruits on the nose, with a suave floral quality gaining power with air. Juicy, expansive and lovely, offering sweet blueberry and mulberry flavors and a touch of candied licorice. Really aromatic today, and approachable as well. Distinctly extroverted in style, with excellent finishing clarity and tangy persistence. (JR)" (11/2013) Antonio Galloni: "The 2011 Alisos, Palmina's Sangiovese/Merlot blend, is another pretty red. Sweet cherries, herbs and spices flesh out nicely. Drink this juicy, crowd-pleasing red over the nex ...Read More »

2011 Philip Togni "Estate" Spring Mountain District Cabernet Sauvignon

94 points Antonio Galloni: "Pine, menthol, savory herbs, licorice, dark cherry and plum notes emerge from the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon. With time in the glass, the 2011 fleshed out beautifully while retaining a classic, mid-weight profile. My sense is that the 2011 will develop along the lines of the 1994, a wine that remains distinctly floral, savory and medium in body, with less of the explosiveness of years such as 1985 or 1997, but with tons of class and style. It is going to be interesting to find out. The 2011 was bottled just a few months ago, so I will not be surprised if it ...Read More »

2011 Kosta Browne Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Deep ruby. Heady scents of raspberry, cherry-cola, floral oil, Asian spices and vanilla. Juicy and penetrating, with superb inner-mouth perfume to its sweet red fruit and candied rose flavors. Becomes spicier with air and finishes with excellent clarity, breadth and persistence. (ST)" (6/2013)91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Offering up a supple, perfumed and delicate array of kirsch, crushed berries, spice and forest floor, the 2011 Pinot Noir (Santa Lucia Highlands) flows onto the palate with a light, deft texture, bright acidity and a clean, nicely focused finish. This isn’t a heavy ...Read More »
