Jeff has been a member of the sales staff in our Redwood City store for the past four years. His first introduction to wine was as a waiter in an upscale Italian restaurant in Hanover, NH more years ago than he likes to admit. He slowly made his way west to wine country, working his way across the US as a graduate student in geography, a public sector researcher in regional economic development, and briefly, in the wake of the Anderson-Enron scandal, a records management coordinator for one of the remaining Big Five accounting firms. Finally, surrendering to the inevitable, he accepted a position in the wine business here at K&L. His goals for the next four years include drinking more wines from Italy and France and trying to limit the number of open bottles on the dinner table on any given night to fewer than six.

2000 Coufran, Haut-Médoc
Review Date: 6-18-2008
A dense, brooding, broad-shouldered wine packed with blackberry and cassis and a hint of licorice on the finish. Astonishing character at this price and a joy to drink.

1999 Labégorce, Margaux
Review Date: 6-18-2008
1999 has always been the “middle child” of Bordeaux vintages—friendly, likeable, never making a fuss, but frequently overlooked. Château Labegorce’s vineyards lie just to the north of Château Lascombes and Château Margaux. An old property of excellent reputation, it was nevertheless left out of the 1855 classification, meaning its wines carry a much lower price tag today. The 1999 is forward, aromatic, charming and approachable. Classic Bordeaux at a great price.
