2012 Blason Pinot Grigio Isonzo (1L)
Review Date: 8-6-2013
This is a mouthful of Pinot Grigio and a wine that has body and is perfectly balanced with zippy acidity and very aromatic, good complexity, length and that subtle elegance that shows muscle and long and flowing finish. It is a little spicy with red apple and melon, and LOTS of minerals on the aftertaste. The Best P/G they made ( so far) and a liter bottle ( Woohoo ) made for two!

2012 Domaine Cherrier Père & Fils Sancerre
Review Date: 6-29-2013
Citus aromas. Full on the palate. Tasty bright fruit - peach, citrus, and even a hint of melon. The touch of grassy flavors and pure Sauvignon fruit will give you a great idea of what the Sancerre appellation is all about.

2012 Weingut Allram Grüner Veltliner (1L)
Review Date: 6-29-2013
Great aromatics on this rich, yet dry and quaffable wine. Perfect for vegetable dishes, lighter fish dishes, or spicy asian cuisine.

2012 Geyser Peak Sauvignon Blanc
Review Date: 5-15-2013
One of California’s finest producers of Sauvignon blanc’s. A crisp, light to medium-bodied example revealing forceful, fragrant notes of melons, figs, dried herbs, and a hint of citrus, delicious, and surprisingly a great value from California!

2011 Tenuta Sarno 1860 Fiano di Avellino
Review Date: 5-15-2013
Haven't heard of Fiano before ? This grape is becoming very popular in the San Francisco bay area, thanks to a little restaurant called "A16", that has introduced alot of Southern Italian veritals to its patrons. A bright, fresh wine with pear, lime, lemon peel, toasted hazelnut with a mineral/salty notes on the palate, this is a very food friendly wine.

1997 Haut-Bergey, Pessac-Léognan
Review Date: 3-8-2013
Classic 1997! Don't let the low price scare you away. This reminds me of the 1997 Cantemerle: it drank well young, but has aged very well. The palate shows, wild spicy berry and floral characters, med-bodied, with soft tannins with nice length on the finish.

Montechiara Prosecco DOC
Review Date: 2-28-2013
Italian bubbles for ten bucks, what did we just step back in time? Nope just another Great bargain wine from K & L! This is the perfect wine for all your spring holiday parties, for there is nothing better than Prosecco, for crowd pleasing and value. This has a light straw yellow hue and has a fine mousse and delicate, with a long-lasting bead. On the nose you will find generous fruit, releasing hints of pear and nectarines. The palate has wonderful balance and elegance, dry & crisp, but admirable fullness and length, closely mirroring the nose. Buy a case; these make great gifts as well.

2011 Corte Rugolin Valpolicella Classico
Review Date: 2-21-2013
Elena and Frederico Coati, a brother and sister team who make dynamite wines, are responsible for this great and affordable wine, they make sensational wine at every level. This is their basic level Valpolicella, but there is nothing basic about this wine. It is full-bodied and elegant and aromatic and has great balance classic fruitiness with an excellent finish (and only 12.5 alcohol, yes, someone remembers how to do that). Perfect for spring evenings and delicate pasta or a roasted chicken.

2010 Haut de Poujeaux, Haut-Médoc
Review Date: 2-1-2013
Classic 2010. Don't let the low price scare you away. This reminds me of the 1997 Cantemerle: it drinks great young, but will age (if you can keep your hands off it.) Wild spicy berry and floral character. Full-bodied, with soft tannins.

Ca de Medici "Terra Calda" Lambrusco
Review Date: 8-25-2012
it’s back!!! And Wooohooo. Greg and I discovered this winery at VinItaly many years ago and found the distributor and introduced this to many happy clientele (we sold a lot of this) then it stop coming into California, a very sad day. I missed this Lambrusco, very dry, some cherry cola and lots of spice, the prefect wine for the last days of summer.

Urbanite Cellars "Redart" Red Blend
Review Date: 11-9-2011
Strawberries, boysenberry, blackberry and pomegranate juice aromas and flavors; soft tannins and some spice; clean finish; Cab gives this a nice backbone, fullness from the syrah and spice from the Zin. What is not to like? A real crowd-pleaser.

On the nose you will find generous fruit, releasing hints of apples, peaches and tropical fruit, plus wisteria blossoms, wonderful balance and elegance complement a pleasurably spiciness. The Palate is velvety, crisp, and fruity, admirable fullness and length, closely mirroring the nose. This is a wine of great balance and elegance and an excellent aperitif for all social occasions.
