Staff Favorites

If you’re going to have Robert Parker or Stephen Tanzer over for dinner, selecting a wine they’ve rated highly will be a nice choice. However, when you’re buying wines for yourself, we’d love to see you find wines that match up your unique palate and pocketbook. We have a large staff of friendly and knowledgeable wine professionals that taste hundreds of wines each week. They can put you in touch with bottles that you are likely to love, often at a much lower cost than the highly-rated gems that often see a run-up in price and frequent availability issues. Like any great group of opinionated professionals, our staff has varied tastes themselves. Often our customers will find a particular staff member with a style that corresponds to their own. That concept works extremely well in our retail stores, and this section is our effort to bring you the same online. Don’t get us wrong, we love the highly rated wines from the press and will continue to offer them, but we think you’re missing out if you’re not augmenting those selections with picks from our excellent staff. Here are their favorites. (Click on a name to see their other selections - or to drop them a line.) Cheers!

2018 Castelli Martinozzi Rosso di Montalcino
Reviwer Picture By: Greg St. Clair | Review Date: 10/29/2020 | Send Email
Martinozzi is situated in a veritable Murderers’ Row of quality and fame. Their vineyards sit near Soldera’s Case Basse, Gaja’s Pieve Santa Restituta, Caprili, and Maté. The quality of their wines is phenomenal. The nose of this Rosso is full of dark Marasca cherry with hints of Tuscan brush and Middle Eastern spice. It has a long, linear feel to it, yet shows a wonderful freshness. The perfect wine for your Spaghetti Bolognese!

I have to admit that I was not looking forward to the blend, having tasted too many bad experiments, but I was pretty floored tasting this wine. It has power, suppleness, and a lot of character and for this price it’s a superb deal. I hope you enjoy it!

2014 La Encantada "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir
Reviwer Picture By: Ryan Woodhouse | Review Date: 10/28/2020 | Send Email
No, this isn't a typo... La Encantada Estate Pinot Noir at 60% off. And it's darn delicious and drinking beautifully. The reality is that 2020 has been a topsy-turvy year and many wineries that relied on restaurants and tasting room sales have been left in tough positions. Sometimes what makes the most sense is to find someone who will take the entire vintage at a deep discount and move that wine along. That is exactly what happened here. Some samples of this wine arrived on my desk, my interest was immediately piqued as I love many of the wines that come from this spectacular vineyard. La Encantada is nestled right in the "Grand Cru" neighborhood of the Sta. Rita Hills with neighbors such as Sanford & Benedict and Fiddlestix. Several iconic wineries bottle vineyard designates of this renowned site including: Tyler, Foxen, Alma Rosa and Buonaccorsi. These wines typically sell for $50+. This La Encantada Estate release is direct from the owners of the vineyard crafted for them by veteran winemaker Doug Margerum. It captures everything that has made this fruit so highly sought after by Santa Barbara's top winemakers. Perched on a hillside in the southwest of the region, this vineyard is buffeted by coastal breezes, the vines grow in complex soils of clay, diatomaceous shale and flint or chert. The resulting wines have great concentration of color and flavor combining deep, brooding red fruits with dusty mineral tones, stuck flint, dried herbs and ferrous notes. A more elegant style embracing restrained fruit and complex earth and mineral notes. Very serious Pinot Noir for an almost trivial price! This is a one time deal, when it's gone it's gone.

Thierry Thibault Brut Champagne
Reviwer Picture By: Greg St. Clair | Review Date: 10/28/2020 | Send Email
This is classic Champagne, the nose is tight, clean focused with an apply tartness softened with a bit of brioche while remaining super clean it's a delight. On the palate the wine is very dry, really tart and shows levels of complexity you generally don’t find in Champagne in this price range. It’s really long, focused and that acidity holds your interest as the complex apple and brioche emerges and gently softens. The finish is remarkably long, direct and boldly lets you know there is no hint of sweetness while spotlighting the complex apple character. Line up your Oysters, this is the wine for them it's a steal!

I have tasted this wine many times from when it was still juice until it’s release but it was in April of 2019 at Vinitaly that I was bowled over, the completed and bottled wine was amazing. The nose of the wine is incredible, it has a deep mesmerizing effect it’s a cauldron of wild herbs, wild cherry, plum and a hint of sauvage. On the palate the wine rolls across your tongue treating you to a lush richness where a savory intrigue emerges and adds to the wild cherry, plum and herb, plush yet buoyant and keeps your attention focused. The finish is vibrant there is a freshness and lift on the back end that makes this wine exceedingly memorable.

2014 La Encantada "Estate" Sta. Rita Hills Pinot Noir
Reviwer Picture By: Neal Fischer | Review Date: 10/28/2020 | Send Email
A 2014 Pinot Noir for this price is something to check out. A little shy at first, the wine opened up nicely in the glass and was quite expressive. The nose had elements of dried strawberries and red currants, and then it got more robust with spice and a little forest floor. The palate shows even more red fruit flavors across the board with a layer of herbaceousness. The spice continues through the palate and intensifies through the sipping experience. This is a fun little find.

Thierry Thibault Brut Champagne
Reviwer Picture By: Neal Fischer | Review Date: 10/27/2020 | Send Email
Thibault Brut goes for balance consisting of a third each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Meunier. The nose opens rather floral with honeysuckle and potpourri followed by bright green apple and a little spice. The palate is racy with big citrus acidity, more crisp apple, and huge chunks of chalky minerality. This is a fresh and bold Champagne that can perk up any party.

With a fun, easy flavor profile combined with a classic, sophisticated structure and finesse, the Brut from Thierry Thibault represents great value for excellent wine. The price-point belays the massive mouthfeel of the clearly well made juice. One of our in-house standard setters, this is a do-it-all bottle of bubbles that doesn't lean too far in anyone direction stylistically, but shows a depth and richness that most middle-of-the-road Champagne lacks.

Laurent-Perrier "La Cuvée" Brut Champagne
Reviwer Picture By: Scott Beckerley | Review Date: 10/27/2020 | Send Email
Laurent Perrier has long been a favorite of mine due to its clean, lovely character and combination of quality and value. This new cuvee has a tad more chardonnay and an increased sur lie aging of six months. The result? Even BETTER quality than it previously had! Beautiful nose of saline, cream and lemon meringue. Increased weight on the mid-palate with stone fruits and peachy goodness. Long, lingering finish with key lime, chalk, minerals and nectarine. These is really not much more to ask from this champagne!

How do you make a classic pleasing Champagne even better? Bring in some new spectacular fruit sources including a lot of Grand Cru Chardonnay and add 'La Cuvee' to the name. The replacement for the LP Brut is just fantastic! It shows a more creamy nose next to the previous LP, and a finer more mineral driven palate impression. The round and fairly ripe apple and peach middle has an appealing steely core, and a chalky minerality underpinning it all. Even more refined than the Champagne it replaces, LP has an even better winner on their hands here. It will make socially distanced holidays much better!

Thierry Thibault Brut Champagne
Reviwer Picture By: Diana Turk | Review Date: 10/27/2020 | Send Email
This is a stellar addition to our under-$30 Champagne collection. A classic blend of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir and Meunier from estate-grown fruit, Thierry Thibault‘s Brut ticks all the right boxes for Champagne: lees aging, toastiness on the nose (and through the creamy palate), fine bead, and a crisp yet long finish. That brioche note is typically a quality reserved for much older - read: more expensive - Champagne, since it’s due to time spent on the lees. But this is already keenly developed here, giving you that coveted breadiness without having to cellar for decades or spend a lot. The complexity, especially at this price, is impressive.

Wow! This is everything I love about Laurent-Perrier's classic brut, just amplified. More chalky Chardonnay and an extra year on the lees give the La Cuvée boosted minerality and complexity. It still shows the easygoing apple fruit of the original, with a sophistication that belies its great price point.

Laurent-Perrier "La Cuvée" Brut Champagne
Reviwer Picture By: Gary Westby | Review Date: 10/27/2020 | Send Email
Several years ago, Laurent Perrier was fortunate enough to acquire a small Champagne group that owned vineyards and had some very good contracts in the Côtes de Blancs. This is the first product to be released that includes fruit from these marvelous sites and it is a revelation. They have increased the proportion of chardonnay in the blend to 55% (the balance is 30% pinot noir and 15% meunier), and now only use the first and most delicate portion of the grape pressing, while increasing the aging minimum to over four years on the lees. The result is a Champagne with a near blanc de blancs character, singing with Puligny Montrachet-like lime and vibrant chalk.

Reviwer Picture By: Gary Westby | Review Date: 10/27/2020 | Send Email
Thierry Thibault expanded our allocation of this excellent Champagne this year... Maybe we will have it in stock for a few days after the email this time! Thierry is the son of one of the giants of Champagne, the late great Daniel Thibault who was chef de cave for both Charles and Piper Heidsieck and pioneered the concept of transparency in non-vintage Champagne with his mis-en-cave bottlings. The estate spans two villages in heart of the western valley of the marne- Verneuil and Passy-Grigny. This Champagne is composed of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Meunier and is aged for three years on the lees. This is a very bright, fresh style with vibrant acidity, but also with wonderful Chablis-like clean earth and complexity. It has a perfect, tight bead and a creamy texture, as well as a very dry and long finish. I was shocked at the price — this is the kind of value that will not last on our shelves!

2018 Bodegas Aleanna "El Enemigo" Chardonnay Mendoza
Reviwer Picture By: Kirk Walker | Review Date: 10/27/2020 | Send Email
Deep, broad, inviting with intriguing nuances. From the go this wine delivers classic Chardonnay. The nose starts with apples and pears, then it transitions into what I want to call hints of sweet decadence hazelnuts and toffee and hiding behind all of that are subtle lifted aromatics basil, mint, licorice and pepper. The nose is almost like a tear drop, it starts big and round and then pulls you into a smaller finer point which then instinctively you have to take a sip and then..... Bang! The wine explodes on the palate. It is broad and rich with all of the fruit and a roundedness that you can almost call lush but the acid then pulls it back. With all of the big flavors then wine is very clean. This wine is delicious, it plays tribute to the classic Chardonnay regions (and their styles) it speaks to The how good the high elevation sites in Mendoza are for Chardonnay.

2007 Veedercrest Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon

It's rare that we run into a vertical of Napa Cab at any caliber in an affordable price range, so that alone makes this special, but the fact that they come from a pedigree vineyard and in a vintage window as highly regarded as this is unprecedented! The 2007 is probably my favorite of the line up. It combines brighter, fresher fruit with much more savory umami, stew, tobacco, and fantastic tannic structure. This is a Napa that clearly took its cues from an older world style and incorporated it into the new world in an outstanding fashion!

Remember Monte Ellis' warrior days? He never made an All-Star Game, he never contended for an other major awards, he just showed up to work, dropped 30 and rode home on his moped - This is Monte Ellis wine, you might not have heard of it if you're not a fan of the region but it's better than your current line up and it plays like it's from a major market. Pear and apple coupled with the soft but persistent wood notes and spiced, peppery, white stone core floated on a creamy, finely textured palate that finishes for days. This get's top scores every year and it's obvious why. Better than your current house wine, only trade if you get a former first rounder out of the deal that'll push you over the hump.

Sometimes wines get points for a reason, and sometimes you understand it from the moment you pop the bottle. This is absolutely one of those wines and once again it proves why the best deals these days are coming from our friends down South! This is a monster of a Chardonnay, bright and lively and still layered and approachable. The nose is pear, apple hard candy, slight toast, a hint of green tea and some fresh basil. The palate is toasty and robust with acidity that cuts through the center to balance it out. Asian pear, dry popcorn, green tea and saline marry together in such a wonderfully cohesive way to make one of the best sub $30 bottles on our shelves!

2017 Arterberry Maresh "Old Vine" Dundee Hills Pinot Noir
Reviwer Picture By: Ryan Moses | Review Date: 10/26/2020 | Send Email
Arterberry Maresh has been one of my go-to names for refined, complex, and flat-out delicious Pinot. Their 2017 “Old Vines” is another remarkable wine, the kind that could be easily mistaken for high-end Burgundy but still carries a stunningly accessible price tag. It is hard not to notice its beautiful transparent ruby color. With notes of cinnamon, thyme, and tart red fruit on the gorgeous aromatics, the palate follows through with crisp cherry, cola, five spice, and fine grain tannins. There is great extract and structure, but the wine is weightless. The finish builds long after the wine is gone. Drink now after a long decant or keep for another decade. It is a remarkable feat of strength to see a wine this generous and dynamic that clocks in at under 13%. This will thrill the modern and traditional camp for Pinot, one of the few that deftly strikes such a delicate balance.

This is the first vintage of Hay Shed Hill that we’ve carried before, I am wholeheartedly impressed by this Margaret River Chardonnay. Stone fruits of white peach and apricot dominate the nose along with green apple and subtle hints of baking spice. On the palate, this is big, full-bodied Chardonnay at its best. Mouth-coating, weighted, and powerful the acid balance perfectly compliments the power of the fruit. With additional notes of Brioche, and nuances of Oak and almonds on the finish, this is definitely a phenomenal new find for K&L.

I'll get to the point: $15.99 is a ridiculously low price for this wine. Good job on buyer Keith for bringing in this wine but the real winner is you, the customer, when you buy it. Classic Cab Franc notes abound: pencils and wet pavement, violets, cherry compote, plums and savory herbs. Thanksgiving will be here before you know it and this would be a fine companion to whatever you are cooking. Whether you're enjoying a traditional turkey meal or even just planning on an outdoor afternoon gathering that involves cheese and charcuterie, or are hunkering down with a cheesy new Netflix show, this is the bottle that will go with all of that and more.

2017 Mt. Brave Mount Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon
Reviwer Picture By: Ryan Woodhouse | Review Date: 10/25/2020 | Send Email
Mt. Veeder is one of my favorite regions for Cabernet. The wines grown here are very distinctive. They have power and structure but also tend to retain beautiful varietal characters of cedar, tobacco and leather. Combined with the minerality expressed from the rugged volcanic and ancient sea bed soils, these wines are truly unique and fascinating. Mt Brave captures exactly what I described above with the extra bit of flare and exoticism Chris Carpenter puts into his wines. The 2017 might be best release of this wine in recent memory, perhaps owing to the declassification of Lokoya wines that were not produced in 2017. I love that this wine has the upfront fruit and lush texture to be enjoyed young, but at the same time there is obvious potential for ageing here with mountain tannins woven into the fabric of rich, dark fruit. Those compelling cigar box and cedar notes are here too adding another layer on complexity beyond the luxurious fruit. This wine is very well done, nothing is out of place, the balance impeccable. In this day and age when you across a wine of this pedigree, with triple 95 point scores from the top publications, the price tag is typically MUCH higher. This is a great buy for those folks who like to drink super high-end, cult Napa Cabs, but don't want to spend $200-$500 per bottle doing it.

This is 100% Cab from Napa's Oak Knoll District for only $25. Let me repeat: this is 100% Cab from Napa's Oak Knoll District for only $25. Considered one of the coolest regions in Napa, the growing season here is longer, the fruit ripens slowly and benefits from the nearby cool ocean breeze. The result is a polished and beautifully aromatic wine with tons of freshness and structure. What I enjoy most about this under-the-radar wine is the savory side of Cab that shines through and it's not overly rich nor sappy. It is robust but perfectly balanced. Let it breathe for about 45 minutes to allow it to stretch and wake up. Good wine comes to those who wait.

When you stare down the barrel of vintage Champagne purchasing you can, like me, be somewhat intimidated that you might make a wrong turn somewhere. Price points range from expensive to quite expensive and you want to make sure that you are spending your money where it counts. This is the one my friends, this is the buy that makes all your worries turn into beautiful bubbles that scale up your glass as you sip gleefully and wonder how many more bottle are left at K&L. Purely made of Chardonnay grapes picked from the Cote des Blancs--the croissant shaped Mecca for dry, crisp mineral style of Champagne--the bottle abounds with crunchy toasted bread notes, flinty airs of lemon and orange blossom. The finish is so smooth that it is great by itself or enlivened next to aperitif at the start of a meal. But let's be honest, a good old fashioned fried chicken and a bottle of French champagne does the trick every time.

10 miles from the coast in the Santa Rita Hills AVA, lies La Rinconada Vineyard where Drake Whitcraft works with growers to maximize efforts to regenerate the soil through natural methods. Blessed with optimal cool weather growing conditions and prime soil environment, this Chardonnay expresses itself with bright notes of Meyer lemon and green apple.

Love the 2018 vintage of this wine. The nose brings aromas of dried cherry and roses, and on the palate you will find raspberries, tar, tobacco, truffle, and a little Langhe dust with a good tannin structure. I really enjoy the elegance to this wine, and with all of its varietal purity here, I recommend decanting for a couple hours...or even aging a couple of years (up to five or six years if you are that patient).

It is drinkable now, with a couple of hours in a decanter, or I would give this wine time to improve and continue to evolve for another ten years.

This is floral and fresh with warm aromas of baked cherries embedded in a wall of Tuscan earth. The Sangiovese shines fully in the rich and inviting savory herb flecked middle, and the Syrah lends a touch of spice to the mineral finish.

This amazing value starts with high toned aromas and flavors of Bing Cherry and sweet cranberry that carry right through the full, creamy and frothy middle. There is a wonderful sweet/tart counterpoint on the bracing finish. A well made over-achiever.

This offers a full mousse filled with green apple, lilac and honeysuckle that is mouth filling and refreshing. There is a citric tug on the finish which hints at green tea, talc and limestone minerality. This is a great value and an overall delicious bottle of bubbly.

This is filled with earthy mixed berries as well as smoky plum and boysenberry fruit in a rich and juicy style that fills the mouth. There is substantial weight to the lively middle and a long, layered texture that keeps the flavors resonating long after the first sip. A simply delicious wine and a great value.

2019 Marisa Cuomo "Ravello" Costa d'Amalfi Bianco

This starts out with complex notes of wax peppers, glazed peach, quince and hints of tarragon in a firm but fruity body that shows good viscosity. The wine is substantial but not heavy and the finish is clean and fresh.

Delicious and refreshing notes of delicate honeyed stone fruits and flower blossoms. The body is saline, clean and mouthwatering with hints of apricot and yellow apple that lead to a lightly mineral driven and palate cleansing finish.
