2015 Raymond "Reserve Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Top Pick!
2015 Raymond "Reserve Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

95 points Decanter: "High octane style but full of purpose and energy.

A lovely food wine." 92 points Wine Spectator: "Deep and dense, well-centered on rich dark berry, licorice, herb, dill, cedar and road tar flavors. Though firmly tannic, this also has a measure of finesse and grace.

The Hahn label is not unfamiliar to K&L as we've had a string of amazing interest in their Pinot Noir over the last few years; the 2012 vintage did extremely well in our wine club and had people coming back for more. The 2013 was one of the top selling Pinot Noirs of 2015, and a wild customer favorite, for us. The 2014 went from one of the top Pinots of the year to flat out one of the top wines of the year, period!

The old vines, tended biodynamically, put out a gorgeously supple, floral red in 2015. Equal parts grenache and syrah with ten percent cinsault, vinified entirely in a mix of cement and stainless steel, the wine is juicy with pure berry fruit, soft grape-skin tannins lending it a gently firm grip and suede-like texture.

2015 Villa I Cipressi Rosso di Montalcino (Previously $22)

Villa i Cipressi is situated just outside Montalcino, on the hillside towards San Angelo in Colle. It is a small family owned and family driven farm. The family started out as beekeepers approximately 30 years ago, basing their future on different types of honey. During the 1990s Sangiovese vines and olive trees were added to the farm trying to meet the requests of clients and for the passion of working the lands. The honey production has since grown larger and the Ciacci Family has experimented with different products either based on honey or with honey... Read More »

2015 Orin Swift "Papillon" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Very deep purple-black colored, the 2015 Papillon Proprietary Red features expressive crème de cassis, mulberries, plum preserves and chocolate box notes with wafts of underbrush, dried herbs and Indian spices. Full-bodied, rich, opulent and spicy in the mouth, it has a velvety texture and seamless freshness, finishing long with a lively pepper and herbs lift. (LPB)" (3/2018) 93 points Wine Spectator: "A big, rich and potent style, with layers of flavors extending from black licorice to dark berry, loamy earth, cedar and tobacco.

2016 Carrick "Unravelled" Pinot Noir Bannockburn Central Otago (Biodynamic) (Previously $20)

Raymond Chan: "Even ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, a little lighter on the edge and youthful in appearance. The nose is fresh and tightly bound, quite elegant and slender in presentation, with pure aromas of dark-red and black cherries, dark herbs and violet florals. This is fresh and youthful, and yet to unfold. Medium-full bodied, the palate has bright, vibrant and juicy flavours of dark-red and black cherries, along with soft notes of dark herbs and violet florals. The fruit is balanced by a light, grainy tannin structure encasing the fruit, and soft aci ...Read More »

2015 Martinelli "Bella Vigna" Russian River Valley Chardonnay (Previously $40)

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine has inviting caramel-apple aromatics, which follow along a subdued palate of ripe texture and oak. A brightness of orange blossom and tangerine add freshness and vibrancy to the lush fig-filled surroundings, dotted in nutmeg. (VB)" (4/2018) K&L Notes: Antonio Galloni praised the current offerings from this producer: "I have had many memorable tastings at Martinelli over the years, but I can't think of a complete set of wines on a par with what I tasted this year. The 2016 Pinots and Zinfandels in particular are absolutely brilliant for their precision and n... Read More »

2016 Oakridge "Over the Shoulder" Chardonnay Yarra Valley Victoria (Previously $15)

93 points James Halliday: "From vineyards in four locations in the Lower and Upper Yarra Valley, the grapes pressed directly to a mix of stainless steel and French oak barrels for fermentation and maturation. It has a generous serve of ripe stone fruits (white peach and nectarine to the fore), balanced by oak and natural acidity. *Special Value Selection. Top 25 Whites Under $25*" K&L Notes: Made by 20+-year veteran, Yarra Valley winemaker David Bicknell. David is considered by many as one of the best Chardonnay producers in all of Australia.

2016 Fess Parker Santa Barbara County Chardonnay (Previously $15)

Jeb Dunnuck: "Starting with the Chardonnays, the 2016 Chardonnay Santa Barbara County is a forward, easy-going effort that's loaded with honeyed tropical fruit, medium-bodied richness and a good finish. It's about as consumer friendly as they come." (8/2017) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Offering up white peaches and fresh pineapple on the nose with hints of nutmeg and coriander seed, the 2016 Chardonnay Santa Barbara County has ripe stone fruit and tropical notes in the mouth with a lovely spiciness to the finish.

2015 Walter Hansel "Cahill Lane" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir

95 points Vinous: "The 2015 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane Vineyard is a bit more closed than the other wines in this range, but it also offers greater subtlety finesse and nuance. I expect the 2016 will need at least a few years to be at its best, but all the elements are in place for that to happen. Blood orange, white pepper, chalk and mint give the 2016 an attractive upper register that is beguiling. This is a superb showing from Steve Hansel. 95+ (AG)" (4/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The nose of the medium ruby-purple colored 2015 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane sings of crushed black cherries, black raspberr ...Read More »

Michter's US #1 Single Barrel Straight Rye Whiskey (750ml)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Crazy-sweet aroma, full of caramel, vanilla and a slight floral touch. The bite comes first (and lingers awhile), followed by vanilla, caramel, coconut flavors. It mellows considerably with ice, and becomes quite likeable, drinkable and mild. (KN)" (11/2010) K&L Notes: The Michter's name has been synonymous with great whisky since the 1950s. That famous whisky is no longer distilled at the famous Schaefferstown Distillery in PA, but the legacy lives on. Current owners Chatham Imports bottles under this historic name and have been doing so since the 1990s! One of the ... Read More »
