Monkey 47 Schwarzwald Gin (1L)
Top Pick!
The story of Monkey 47 gin is romantic: in 1951, a British man named Montgomery Collins moved to Germany's Black Forest and opened a guesthouse named "Zum wilden Affen"--the wild monkey. At that time a renowned gin drinker, Collins's taste for the spirit was unknown until renovation work at the country guesthouse led to the discovery of a weighty old wooden box containing a bottle and a letter. The dusty bottle had been labeled and decorated by hand, showing a sketch of a monkey and the words "Max the Monkey--Schwarzwald Dry Gin." The accompanying letter...

90 points Wine Spectator: "A broad, supple version, displaying ripe plum, cherry, licorice and stony flavors. Grainy tannins shore up the finish, with an overall impression of balance and brightness. (BS)" (10/2019) Decanter: "Pleasant and complex floral aromatics. Ripe cherry fruits with an almost jammy character on the palate. (panel tasting) " (06/2019) Wine Enthusiast: "This has aromas of underbrush, charred earth, leather and a whiff of cured meat. On the linear, no-frills palate, dusty tannins accompany licorice, espresso and sour cherry. (KO)"...

2012 Fallet-Dart Vintage Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
The Fallet family traces its wine growing history back to 1610, and following the marriage of Geneviève Dart and Gaston Fallet in 1953 the Fallet-Dart brand was founded in 1970. The wine is composed of 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir that is fermented in a mix of oak barrels and stainless steel tanks and aged for at least seven years on the lees.

1997 Ledaig 21 Year Old "Chieftain's" K&L Exclusive Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Unchill-filtered Island Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The odd and wonderful Tobermory distillery is one of Scotland's most picturesque and divisive. Only the Jura Distillery has more disperate opinions of their products. But something that almost every peat lover can agree on is the fact that the distiller's peated line, Ledaig, is an absolute dream. And it's remained in relative obscurity until recently. We've had a good deal of independents offer us Ledaig over the years, but it's almost always young stocks in very quiet hogsheads. That's simply because the mark is only produced a few weeks out of the yea...

2017 Turnbull Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Top Pick!
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep purple-black colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon gives up notes of baked plums, black currant pastilles and dried blueberries with hints of fried herbs, cigar box and fruitcake. Full-bodied, the palate is just slightly hollow with chewy tannins and oodles of freshness pleasantly lifting the berry preserves flavors on the finish. (LPB)" (10/2019)
Price: $49.95

92 points James Suckling: "Red cherry compote, dried herbs and spices. Full body, ripe and juicy tannins and a succulent finish." (07/2018)

From the ultra-premium Hoopes Family Vineyard, this blend is 81% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon. 18 months in two-year-old French oak barrels and racked five times. Winemaker note: "The Mutt was inspired by Maya and Sophie, our beloved rescue dogs. The Mutt, like Maya and Sophie, is playful, unique and interesting. The grapes used are the 'seconds'—what we don’t use in our premium wines, we salvage and use in The Mutt. Maya and Sophie aren’t shy about their pedigrees, and we’re not shy about using 'seconds,' either, because they make a wine made from pr...

Acumen works with fruit from multiple vineyard sites on Napa's Atlas Peak. A unique appellation in the region, Atlas Peak is often cooler and drier and its volcanic, rocky soils and steep slopes produce a character unlike what we know of Cabernet from the valley floor.

Jesús Puelles is one of the most talented vignerons in Rioja. Hailing from a long line of vineyard worker/owners, Puelles knows the terruño in his little slice of land in the Rioja Alta town of Abalos. Most of the grapes for his red wines come from his own 20 hectares, which are north-facing and located at 600 meters in altitude, affording the visitor with one of the most dramatically beautiful views of Rioja's main mountain ranges: the Sierra Cantabria mountains immediately to the north and the Sierra de la Demanda mountains to the south. This white win...

2016 Jax Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Top Pick!
94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine is plush, lush and fruity, interwoven with tones of cardamom and clove. The palate is rich in feel, bolstered by layers of orange peel, cassis and toasted oak flavors. (VB)" (03/2019) 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Made up of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Cabernet Franc, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is scented of cedar, cassis and camphor with herbs and earth. The medium to full-bodied palate is vivacious with loads of fruit and a velvety texture with a refreshing finish....

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Aromas of ripe orchard fruit, citrus, grilled herb and nuts delicately guide the nose. Round and delicious, the medium-bodied palate delivers baked yellow apple, creamy white peach, ginger and white almond alongside tangy acidity. A juicy note of candied lemon drop lingers on the close. *Editors’ Choice* (KO)" (07/2018)

This has been the #1 selling Italian wine for more than two decades at K&L! You can't get that kind of continued success without a supremely fantastic quality-to-price ratio. The southern Tuscan coast is a wonderful location for winemaking, with stable temperatures and a solid history of quality, yet no fame and fortune. Incredibly priced bargains come out of the region, and the proof is in the bottle. This wine is wonderful, soft, forward and easy-to-drink Sangiovese with an enticing mixture of cherry, plum and earth. Eminently drinkable.

2007 Alexandre Le Brun "Cuvée Fascination" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Top Pick!
Alexandre le Brun is a young, ninth generation winemaker in Monthelon in the Ardenne (Marne) region of Champagne. His family established themselves in Champagne in 1750 and their cellars were built in 1822. We were very pleased to meet him and are very excited to carry his wines.

A.D. Coutelas "Cuvée Louis Victor" Brut Champagne (Previously $40) (Previously $40)
Top Pick!
90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Fermented in wood and with the addition of a high proportion of reserve wines, this rich bottling displays a creamy texture and good acidity. It hints at the wood and is on the dry side. (RV)" (12/2016) K&L Notes: The Louis Victor from Coutelas is made in the solera style, from one large barrel containing a perpetual blend. Coutelas lists this as composed of 1/3 each Chardonnay, Meunier and Pinot Noir, but in fact, it is refreshed with 1/4 of the best wine vinified in a given year, while another 1/4 is taken out and bottled....

Amats is both the brand name of the Txakoli as well as one of Zudugarai's vineyards. It's a beautiful vineyard, a sandy substrate covered in naturally growing green cover between the rows, with the Cantabrian Sea in full view to the north. Produced from Hondarribi Zuri grapes, this is classic Txakoli: zippy, crisp, tart green apple flavors are enlivened by a lovely sparkle from the CO2 retained in tank during fermentation. Try this refreshing, vibrant, low in alcohol white wine with a wide range of foods, from obvious choices such as seafood (grilled sar...

This 100% Avize Grand Cru bottling is pure estate and all fermented in stainless steel. It comes from the "miracle" 2012 vintage, one of the smallest, most high-quality crops of the decade. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne Buyer)
Price: $39.99

Wine Enthusiast: "Honeysuckle, honeydew melon and white-peach aromas follow through to the somewhat sweet palate along with a note of glazed orange zest. Fresh acidity lifts the rich candied flavors. (KO)" (12/2017) K&L Notes: The Bronca sisters grow their own fruit on steep hillside vineyards, then make base wine and perform the secondary (sparkling) fermentation on non-vintage batches three or four times a year to ensure freshness. Low yields and hillside-grown fruit ensure that the wine has good concentration and acidity. This one's a clean, crisp a...

Fleury Blanc de Noirs Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
95 points Decanter: "The original 'green' Champagne producer, organic since 1970 and biodynamic since 1989. I picked the Brut Sonate 2011 to include in my book, which is a little more expensive, but this blanc de noirs is also brilliant, rich and creamy but dancing with a salty minerality. Drinking Window 2017 - 2024. (JA)" (12/2017) 91 points James Suckling: " Very attractive spicy and floral aromas make this an alluring proposition. But don't be fooled – the palate has yellow and pink grapefruit amid a savory, deep and embracingly powerful finish. Dr...

94 points Vinous: "Marietta's 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Game Trail is powerful, dark and quite savory. Smoke, tobacco, gravel, menthol, cedar and licorice all run through this bold, pungent mountain Cabernet. There is quite a bit of aromatic intensity to play off the blackberry fruit in this strapping young wine. Give it a few years in bottle for the tannins to soften. (AG)" (05/2019) K&L Notes: Winemaker's notes: "This south-facing vineyard overlooks the Yorkville Highlands at 1400 feet elevation on a ridge heading out towards the ocean. This Cabernet S...

95 points James Suckling: "Wow. What a nose of pure blueberries, rose petals, lavender, crushed minerals, elderflower and so much vivid orange and candied citrus peel. Full body, electric acidity, firm and wonderfully polished tannins and a long, mineral finish. Drink in 2021." (07/2018) 95 points Wine Enthusiast: "This opens with aromas of ripe berry, crushed herb, scorched soil and dark culinary spice. Mirroring the nose, the firm full-bodied palate evokes juicy Marasca cherry, black raspberry, star anise and clove. Taut, tightly knit and noble tanni...

2017 Flowers Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
94 points James Suckling: "Beautiful dark berries with ripe strawberries and hints of decadence and richness. Some meat, too. Full-bodied, dense and rich with tight and linear tannins. Needs a year or two to soften. Better in 2022." (05/2019) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Big and rich, with flavors of plum tart, dried strawberry and red currant, supported by crunchy acidity. Cedar and hot stone notes emerge on the pure-tasting, minerally finish. Drink now through 2024. (KM)" (08/2019) 90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale ruby-purple colored, t...

95 points James Suckling: "A wine with beautiful strawberry and chocolate with hints of pie crust. It's full-bodied with super integrated tannins and a long, long finish. Needs at least four to five years to really come together but so wonderful. Not the amazing 2009 but clearly outstanding." (11/2013) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Gorgeous, flowery, classic Margaux once again, the 2010 Malescot St.-Exupery continues to show virtually no toasty oak, given the impeccable balance and full-bodied, full-throttle style it possesses. Black raspbe...

90 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley was sourced from sites Emerson Brown has worked with for a number of years, coming primarily from bench and valley floor vineyard blocks located in Oakville, Rutherford and St. Helena. It was aged in French oak, 40% new. Deep garnet-purple colored, notes of baked black cherries, preserved blackberries and warm cassis come bounding out of the glass with touches of camphor, forest floor and Provence herbs. Full-bodied, the palate has a s...

2017 Coudoulet de Beaucastel Côtes-du-Rhône
Top Pick!
92 points James Suckling: "Abundant, rich and ripe red fruit with lightly spiced pastry and quite brambly complexity. The palate has a super fleshy, bold and upfront-tannin shape. Fresh and easy." (10/2019) 90-92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Still not yet bottled for my June visit (it was scheduled to be bottled at the end of the month), the final blend of the 2017 Cotes du Rhone Coudoulet de Beaucastel was showing plenty of garrigue and dried-spice notes layered over cherry fruit. Full-bodied, silky textured and long on the finish, it should...

93 points James Suckling: "Plenty of vinous red-cherry, berry and plum aromas, smelling really fresh. The palate has supple, crisp and open-knit, fleshy-fruit appeal with a succulent, fleshy cherry finish. Drink now."

Rich and distinctive. Try this with duck à l'orange. Drink now through 2022. (AN, Web-2017)" 90 points Vinous: "(all Pinot Noir; 10 g/l d...

Opus One "Overture" Napa Valley Bordeaux Blend
Top Pick!
In the tradition of many great Bordeaux estates, Opus One produces a fine second wine called Overture. Overture reflects the winemaker's artistry by showcasing the talent of blending five traditional Bordeaux grape varieties and capturing terroir characteristics of the same variety grown in different soils. Overture's additional blending aspect - that of marrying multiple vintages - yields a softer, rounder expression of their estate that may be enjoyed upon release.

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "With vines on the Montagne de Reims, this producer has a good line in Pinot Noir, which forms 85% of the blend. The wine is rich while well balanced and ripe. Now with just the right amount of bottle aging, it is full in the mouth, showing attractive apple and ripe pear flavors. The aftertaste is soft and fresh. (RV)" (12/2015) 92 points Wine Spectator: "An elegant, aperitif-style Champagne that offers layers of flavor, with notes of Gala apple, tangerine, smoke, biscuit, cumin, honey, lime zest and salted butter. Texturally...

98 points Vinous: "The 1977 Taylor's Vintage Port is initially tight and conservative on the nose: strawberry, baked cherry, tobacco and wild hedgerow notes emerging but remaining tight-lipped. This needs a good decant! The palate is endowed with depth and concentration, very well balanced with an attractive crispness. Perhaps you could argue that it is a "linear" and more "correct" Taylor's compared to the 1970 and lacks some charm. But there is immense complexity here so it is more a case of a Port demanding a very long maturation in bottle. Tasted in ...

2018 Domaine Tabordet "Le Champs des Vignes" Pouilly Fumé
Top Pick!
Nestled in the village of Verdigny, Domain Tabordet is run by brothers Yvon and Pascal Tabordet, who took the reins back in 1981. When the two brothers first took over the estate it consisted of three hectares (7.4 acres) in Sancerre. By 1988 they had added another 4.5 hectares of Sancerre and also added 12 hectares (29.7 acres) in neighboring Pouilly Fumé, just across the Loire River. Wine growing in Pouilly Fumé dates back to the fifth century when the Romans dominated the area. In 1937, it became an official Appellation d’Origine Contrôlée (AOC) of Fr...

Decanter: "Forward lactic charm, big bubbles and a rich, somewhat indulgent charm. Lemony and floral with crisp acidity, where coconut and green fruit marry. (Blind tasted by Stephen Brook, Jason Haynes, Jasper Morris M.W.) " K&L Notes: This all estate-grown Champagne comes from all 1er Cru vineyards on the "Petite Montagne," a beautiful part of the Champagne district between Reims and Epernay that is a little bit west of the beaten path.

Another distillery in owner Diageo's portfolio that humms along under the radar quietly churning out whisky that provides the heart and soul of some of the world's most important blends.

Tamdhu 19 Year Old "Old Malt Cask" K&L Exclusive Single Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
In recent history, Tamdhu has occupied a front and center seat in Edrington's blends such as The Famous Grouse and Cutty Sark. The distillery has been owned by Ian Macleod since Edrington divested in 2011 and they've revamped the entire core lineup. While their work has been exceptional on the distilleries core bottlings, it's very difficult to beat the enjoyability of well aged Tamdhu at cask strength offered by our single cask program. It's been a long time since anything the Edrington group has ever touched was 80 bucks and anywhere near 19 years old ...

94 points James Halliday: "Selective-harvested, pressed to French puncheons (10% new) for primary (wild) ferment on solids, 20% mlf, 11 months in barrel with occasional batonnage. Fruit-driven, with good varietal expression (grapefruit, green apple) and bright acidity. The screwcap guarantees 5 years accumulation of complexity without loss of fruit freshness." (08/2019)

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Randall Grahm’s ever-evolving ideology shifted again for the new label and blend of this bottling, which includes 52% Grenache, 35% Cinsault and 13% Syrah.

Michel Arnould Verzenay Extra Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
This is 100% Pinot Noir from Verzenay, the northernmost of all the Grand Crus in this northernmost of French wine regions. The whole village faces north, the wrong way, away from the sun, and yet miraculously ripens Pinot Noir, the most difficult Champagne variety to ripen perfectly. Some say it's because of a meteor that in prehistoric times hit the area that is now the village, creating the faux de Verzenay, a forest where the trees bend and fold in on themselves like a dark wood in The Lord of the Rings. Pair this wine as an apéritif with a smoked sal...

Right now, it’s delicate, with filigreed lemon-lime flavors offering fruit depth before signing off in a crisp, clean finish. Chill it as an early-evening aperitif, a brunch wine for bacalhão fritters or pike quenelles, or a picnic wine for ventresca tuna salad."

Our fifth vintage of this direct import Albariño, this wine shows everything we like in the grape: hints of lemongrass, lively stone fruit, and a brisk, saline-tinged palate. Located in the sub-zone of Condado do Tea, where the days are a bit warmer and evenings are slightly cooler, there is a wonderful mid-palate presence to complement the typically lean and mineral qualities of Albariño. A classic with any shellfish, especially Dungeness crab!

2016 Château de Montfaucon Lirac
Top Pick!
91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A blend of Grenache, Syrah and Cinsault, the 2016 Lirac was bottled just a couple of weeks before my visit. Perhaps as a result, it was somewhat reticent at first but later opened to reveal opulent, velvety notes of cola and dried spices. It's medium to full-bodied, with dark fruit and a long, rich finish. (JC)" (11/2018) 90 points Decanter: "Ripe, earthy nose. Structured, fresh and quite intense in the mouth with well-managed tannins and a long, floral finish.

Aged 17 months in new oak, it has a beautiful perfume of crème de cassis, blue fruits, classy oak, and graphite that opens up with time in the glass. Possessing full-bodied richness, ultra-fine tannins, and again, this voluptuous, weightless texture, it’s a brilliant wine that will keep for over a decade. This is one of those wines that blends elegance and richness brilliantly. Drink thro...

It's a classic DuMol Pinot Noir to drink over the coming 5-7 years. This cuvée comes all from the Russian River Valley, from multiple clones, and spent a year in 40% new French oak." (06/2019)

2015 La Massa "Giorgio Primo" Toscana
Top Pick!
97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "This wine blew my mind. The 2015 Giorgio Primo is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 40% Merlot and 5% Petit Verdot. I'm told that the percentage of Merlot will increase in 2016 (to a majority role) but will diminish by a large margin in 2017 because that hot vintage was so difficult on early-ripening varieties. The bouquet is nothing short of explosive, with inky black fruit followed by pencil shaving, chalkboard, wet river stone and all the other beautiful mineral notes that I so closely associate with Panzano in Chianti....
