2010 La Rioja Alta "904" Gran Reserva Rioja
Top Pick!
98 points James Suckling: "Fresh blueberries and brambleberries take center stage, which is striking for a wine of this age. There are also lots of roasted herbs, such as sage, not to mention floral elements, including lavender and dried violets. Then come cedar, sandalwood and tar. The tannins are incredibly round and soft, without the slightest hint of anything dry. This is among the most elegant of Riojas, where the acidity is wonderfully pronounced and cuts right through any touch of dried fruit. Long and powerful, yet subtle on the finish. Drink now...

Billecart-Salmon Brut Rosé Champagne
Top Pick!
94 points James Suckling: "An subtle nose with plenty of fine autolysis aromas of fresh bread and sweetly fragrant yeasty notes, plus some gentle spice and chalky notes. The palate unleashes beautiful wild strawberry fruit flavors, super fresh, fleshy and pure. Great balance and depth. " (07/2015) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale yet intense pink in color the Billecart-Salmon NV Brut Rosé is pure, fresh and intense on the nose, with lovely raspberry aromas, refreshing citrus zest flavors and great definition. On the palate this is a pure,...

Bollinger "Special Cuvée" Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
93 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "There is lovely complexity to the distinctly yeasty nose that combines high-toned green apple, pear, white flowers and gentle citrus nuances. The clean and sleek flavors are supported by a crisply firm but fine mousse where the finish is medium dry and lingering. It's not all that often that I suggest that readers cellar NV Brut but this is an example that absolutely cries out for it. I suspect that the texture will materially change for the better (i.e. become creamier) and better depth will be in the offing as well...

2014 Rhys "Bearwallow Vineyard" Anderson Valley Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Bearwallow Vineyard is a solid step up over the Anderson Valley release and has more tension, elegance and precision. Offering up classic notes of strawberries, spice, black cherries and a touch of sous bois, it has medium to full-bodied richness, terrific purity of fruit and integrated acidity. Give bottles a year or two and drink through 2026. While the majority of 2014s are charming and supple, that’s certainly not the case with these latest releases from Kevin Harvey. I found all of his 20...

2016 Fèlsina "Fontalloro" Toscana (Pre-Arrival) (Pre-Arrival)
Top Pick!
98 points James Suckling: "Amazing aromas of licorice, wet earth, orange peel and lavender. Full body, tight and super compact and polished. Goes on for minutes. Clearly great. " (06/2019) 98 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Fontalloro is the best vintage of this landmark wine that I have tasted thus far. This is a very elegant vintage, with more volume in the mouth and precise notes of tar, licorice, camphor ash, resin and Indian spice. In a race between the highly competitive 2015 and 2016 vintages, I give a slight advantage to this wi...

2014 Ramey Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Top Pick!
93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley is classic Ramey Cabernet all the way. Blackberries, currants, scorched earth, and charcoal aromatics, medium to full body, great elegance, and notable concentration all make for a top notch 2014 that can be drunk today or cellared for 10-15 years. The blend is 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 11% Merlot, 6% Malbec, and 3% Petit Verdot, and it’s made in decent enough quantities that it should be easy to find." (06/2018) 93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon is just as appealing today as it...

Suntory "Hibiki Japanese Harmony" Japanese Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
91 points Wine Enthusiast: "The newest blended whisky offering from Hibiki is burnished gold in the glass and has a bold aroma that mixes vanilla, fresh pear and a hint of smoke. The smokiness comes forward at the first sip, wrapping around a core of oak and vanilla custard and finishing long, with a mouthwatering bitter chocolate note. *Best of 2016* (KN)" (03/2016) 90 points Whisky Advocate: "Poised and complex, with typically lifted fruitiness: strawberry ice cream, pineapple, peach, balanced by delicate oak, bamboo shoot-like delicacy, then lemon. ...

2009 Alexandre Le Brun "Cuvée Dilection" Brut Rosé Champagne (Previously $80) (Previously $80)
Top Pick!
Alexandre Le Brun is a young winemaker from Monthelon in the Ardenne (Marne) region of Champagne. He is a ninth-generation winemaker. His family established themselves in Champagne in 1750, and their cellars were built in 1822. The delectable Dilection is based on the incredible 2009 vintage with 85% Chardonnay and 15% Pinot Meunier. Only French oak is used and the vineyard where the grapes are sourced was planted in 1902. It is rich, but classically dry with dark cherry and strawberry fruit on the finish, which lingers.
Price: $58.99

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The citrus, almost golden colored 2012 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Pur Oger is sourced from two specific vineyards in Oger (Les Noyerots and Les Rumigny) that were harvested on September 15th, exactly a week earlier than the corresponding three plots for Pur Avize. The wine displays a deep, rich, tropical yet more aristocratic and mineral bouquet of intense brioche and nougat aromas as well as ethereal, refreshing lemon and limestone notes. Full-bodied, round, rich and complex on the palate, this is a mouth-filling...

2008 Laurent-Perrier Brut Champagne
Top Pick!
96 points Wine Enthusiast: "While still young, this Champagne has all the makings of greatness. Produced from grand cru vineyards, it already balances ripe white fruits with a firm structure that will age well. It’s relatively dry and has plenty of acidity, which will also aid in the longevity.. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2019) K&L Notes: This all Grand Cru blend, which is composed of 50% each Chardonnay and Pinot Noir, is the best I have ever tasted from Laurent-Perrier, and should go the distance if you decide to cellar it. Don't miss this fantasti...

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This explosive, ripe wine is part of a trilogy that the producer has made from three of the greatest villages in Champagne. This tense, mineral-driven wine is rich with white fruits. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2018) 92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sourced from three specific vineyards in Avize (Les Chapelles, Les Avats and Les Maladries), the 2012 Blanc de Blancs Grand Cru Pur Avize is a bright colored Côte des Blancs with a terrific deep and aromatic bouquet of smooth chalk, juicy tropical fruit and lemon notes....

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine comes from Le Mesnil, one of the top villages in the Côte des Blancs, and is produced from only Grand Cru vineyards. It is as textured and mineral as a young wine like this should be. White fruit shows through the concentrated texture and will become more dominant as the wine matures. (RV)" (12/2018) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Sourced from three vineyards in Mesnil (Les Zailleux, Le Tilleul and Les Hautes Mottes) that were picked on the same day (24th of September), Olivier Bonville's citrus colored ...

2014 Baricci Brunello di Montalcino
Top Pick!
95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Wild herb, perfumed berry and pressed rose aromas lift out of the glass along with a whiff of eucalyptus. Smooth, delicious and balanced, the lithe palate has great tension, doling out juicy red cherry, raspberry compote, star anise and baking spice backed up by vibrant acidity. Silky tannins give it extraordinary elegance and linear structure. It won't take years to come around but it also boasts good midterm aging potential. *Editor's Choice* (KO)" (02/2019) 93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Like most producers in ...

90 points Decanter: "Opens with a fanfare of peach, pear and spiced lemon; subtle architecture in the mouth with a chalky subtext and attractive orchard fruit, transported by a flowing mousse. Pretty accomplished and serious. (panel tasting)" (02/2017) K&L Notes: If you have enjoyed the wines of Lallement, Bollinger and Krug in the past, I think you will very much enjoy Michel Arnould. They are bold, masculine Champagnes with plenty of toasty flavor. This is a blend of 75% Pinot Noir and 25% Chardonnay, entirely from estate vineyards in the Grand Cru o...

Four Roses Small Batch Select Straight Bourbon Whiskey (750ml)
Top Pick!
93 points Whisky Advocate: "The limited-edition releases from Four Roses are always top-notch, but this bourbon—a permanently available addition to the lineup—proves itself every bit the equal of its rarer brethren. Made with the distillery’s F yeast strain, among others, it has a perfumed nose, with orange blossom, cedar chest, berries, spearmint, tobacco leaves, sassafras, licorice, and layers of earthy spice. The palate is consistent and deep, with flavors of cherry Coke, cough syrup, orange oil, leathery dark fruit, black pepper, chili flakes, and ch...

It has a minimum age of 25 years, comes from the Grande Champagne region using grapes from Premier Cru vineyards. This is an exclusive offer to our special K&L customers who love very rare and fine cognac. Don't miss out on this great opportunity! Four Stars rating from the Spirit Journal.

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.
Price: $69.99

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." (09/2018) 92 points Wine Spectator: "A toasty version, this is lightly chewy in texture, with mouthwatering acidity framing flavors of steeped black cherry, singed orange peel, wild herb and dried fig. 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...

2007 Dailuaine 12 Year Old "Old Particular" Single Sherry Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
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. Rarely seen as a single malt, we've developed a crush on Dailuaine over the last few years here at K&L. Fortunately for us and our customers, our suppliers have have aquired a number of sherry casks that have been made available at extraordinary prices. For just $65 bucks, this 12 year old delivers all of the meaty intensity that we've had in previous bottles with a more...

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...

The world's first and only vodka distilled from 100% organic medjool dates sourced locally from the Oasis Date Garden in the Coachella Valley. Fermented, distilled and NOT filtered by the Hollywood Distillery in Los Angeles, the resulting spirit is one of the most complex and voluptuous we've ever tasted. Rich and round, it's got absolutely no hard edges, yet is not totally devoid of flavor like most vodka. It's a bold aromatic mixture of ripe stone fruit, hints of mineral and herbs and a subtle creamy texture that makes Oasis Vodka stand out. The Hollyw...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec and a splash of Merlot that spent 18 months in 80% new French oak. It has a darker, mineral-driven style in its blue fruits, smoked earth, charcoal, and graphite aromatics. These give way to a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, fresh, lively 2015 that’s going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15+." (12/2017) 93 points Vinous: "Robert Craig's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Howell Mountain) is surprisingly ...

Franck Bonville "Belles Voyes" Brut Blanc de Blancs Champagne
Top Pick!
91 points Wine Spectator: "Richly spiced, with ground anise, clove, ginger and cardamom, this offers a lively bead, fresh acidity and flavors of quince, honey, pastry dough and golden raisin. Offers a soft, creamy finish. (AN)" (12/2012) 90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This has finesse and elegance, with a thin stream of bubbles and crisp, dry apple flavor. It is taut with a cool feel. (RV)" (12/2012) K&L Notes: This is one of the best Champagnes we carry, regardless of price. Made from the one-and-three-quarters-acre Belles Voyes vineyard in Oger, this ...

The Isle of Jura is one of those incredible malts that we almost never see in the wild. Partly that's because they just don't make that much whisky. But it does seem that the owners, Whyte & Mackay, don't let go of the stuff very often. Isle of Jura has its following, but the little distillery on the sparsely populated island to the north of Islay isn't a household name by any means. The island's 200 inhabitants are vastly outnumbered by a massive population of red deer, who keep the islands vegetation from growing beyond the lowest grasses. The infertil...

96 points James Suckling: "Lots of dried fruit, mushrooms, violets and roses. Full body, very fine tannins and a wonderful finish. Shows so much intensity and clarity. Gorgeous red. Drink or hold. " (12/2018) 95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Thanks to that dark garnet hue, you recognize this as Brunello just as soon as this beautiful wine pours from the bottle. The 2013 Brunello di Montalcino Riserva Duelecci Est showcases that sultry and sophisticated appearance that you get with Sangiovese that has been expertly aged for six long years. The ...

2015 Farella Estate Coombsville Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Top Pick!
95 points Vinous: "Farella's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon is super-polished, elegant and refined. Bright floral/savory notes and silky tannins add complexity to a core of blue and purplish berry fruit in this expressive, wonderfully nuanced Cabernet. All the elements fall into place. Quite simply, this is a stunning wine, especially within the context of the year. Drink through 2030. (AG)" (12/2018) 94 points Wine Spectator: "Dark and winey, with steeped black currant, fig and blackberry fruit flavors, inlaid liberally with smoldering charcoal and sweet tob...

Roger Voss' selection of the best grower-producers of Champagne: "Michel Arnould & Fils has 30 acres based around Verzenay on the Montagne de Reims. Pinot Noir dominates his production, of which the best are the Cuvée Carte d’Or and Grande Cuvée." If you have enjoyed the wines of Lallement, Bollinger, and Krug in the past, you may very much enjoy the bold Champagne of Michel Arnould. The Brut Rosé is 100% Pinot Noir Grand Cru, acquired by assembling different vintages and red Coteaux Champenoises coming from old vines. This lovely rosé Champagne offers h...
Price: $74.99

We only received sixty bottles of the Le Gallais Brut Rosé des Poètes Champagne, which was the top rosé Champagne of my spring trip to the region. This is composed of half each Pinot Noir and Meunier from the best, oldest sites in the clos, and the subject to a rigorous triage on the sorting table. Less than a third of the bunches are selected. The wine is made entirely of free run juice. This not only has the expensive brioche aromas from a nice four year rest on the lees, it also has perfect strawberry fruit. In the mouth, this wine is subtle, detailed...
Price: $59.99

92 points Allen Meadows - Burghound: "If you enjoy overtly yeasty Champagne this would make a good choice as there is plenty of it here framing the relatively elegant nose that combines notes of citrus, white flowers, pear and apple scents that display wisps of secondary development. The old vines definitely are in evidence here with fine mid-palate density that is supported by a moderately fine mousse, all wrapped in a delicious, sappy and lingering finish. This isn't a particularly refined example but I quite like it for its complexity and clear concen...

2014 Bunnahabhain Staoisha Heavily Peated 4 Year Old "Signatory Unchillfiltered Collection" Dechar/Rechar Cask Strength Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)
Top Pick!
The Bunnahabhain distillery is located at the far northern edge of the island of Islay and was built in 1881. There it has quietly made a famously non-peated Islay malt capturing many malt lovers' hearts. The distillery began experimenting with heavily peated malt in the 1990s and has continued to produce limited quantities under various names since then. We've fallen absolutely in love with the style and we're excited to see this special cask in the Signatory warehouse. We typically avoid malt this young, but the Staoisha we got from Milroy in an almost...

2007 Thiénot "Black Ball" Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne (Previously $120) (Previously $120)

Absolutely incredible opportunity on this creamy, supple blanc de blancs that still has great focus and precision and superior, long, mineral finish. Like all of the Thienot vintage wines, this bottling is entirely estate grown from the family's nearly seventy acres of vines. (Gary Westby, K&L Champagne buyer) From the winery: "In 1985 Alain Thiénot launched his eponymous Champagne House, driven by his experience as a courtier and close-knit relationships with Champagne growers. This was quite a challenge in a sector where the greatest names began their...

97 points James Suckling: "This understated Brunello delivers dried cherries, cumin, terracotta, rust and bark. The full-bodied palate presents an intricately detailed tapestry of finely interwoven tannins, interspersed with compressed, vibrant cherries and gilded in colorful, gleaming acidity. The finish is vivacious and polished and very long. Drink in 2024." (09/2019)

After buying the original stills from the old Michter's Jug House, the Herbrucks started making bourbon with corn grown on their 115-acre farm. This gorgeous single barrel of bourbon was distilled in November of 2012 from a mash of 56% corn, 25% rye & 19% malted barley. Bottled right out of the barrel with no filtration or dilution, this is easily one of the best bourbons to come out of Tom's to date. While some of the first casks we sold were high quality, they still showed some of the young spirity qualities that we'd expect from pot distilled whisky. ...

2015 Robert Craig Spring Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $90) (Elsewhere $90)
Top Pick!
94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of 75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 18% Cabernet Franc and the rest Petit Verdot, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Spring Mountain offers a classic Mountain fruit profile with its complex aromatics and fresh, focused, chiseled and structured style on the palate. Mulberries, incense, exotic flowers, and spice all leap from the glass of this inky colored Cabernet Sauvignon, and it’s medium to full-bodied, structured and vibrant on the palate. Brought up in 80% new French oak, it has loads of potential but needs 2-4 years of bottle age. 94...

2017 DuMol "Wester Reach" Russian River Valley Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Incredibly aromatic and complex, the 2017 Pinot Noir Wester Reach offers loads of spiced red fruits, incense, wood smoke, and forest floor notes as well as a medium-bodied, fresh, focused, yet still pleasure bent style. 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)

2016 Leeuwin Estate "Art Series" Chardonnay Margaret River Western Australia
Top Pick!
98 points Bob Campbell: "Very light colour for its age and the bouquet is likewise fresh and young and unevolved. There are subtle grapefruit, spice and nougat aromas and the oak is taking a back-seat. The wine is still tight and reserved, and really needs to be cellared. It's concentrated and will reveal much more if given time. It has outstanding length and finesse. Great potential. - Huon Hooke, The Real Review" (05/2019) 98 points James Halliday: "Straw-green in colour and powerful from the outset. Pure, juicy pear, white peach, sparks of spice, ce...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This amber-hued whisky offers caramel, oak and a hint of black cherry on the nose and mouth. The drying palate leads with black cherry and creamy honey, finishing taut, with leather, cigar wrapper, dark chocolate and clove heat. (KN)" (12/2017) K&L Notes: The excelllent Benromach 15 year was added to the core line in 2015. It's one of the best values for old Speyside on the market today. Designed to capture the old style of Speyside using both ex-bourbon and sherry casks, the Benromach 15 year offers something for every malt...

93 points Whisky Advocate: "Keeps true to this award-winning whiskey’s oak-driven style, with aromas of lead pencil, leather, and fresh sawdust, balanced by dense fruitiness and tinged with herbal licorice and eucalyptus. Brawny and tannic on the palate, it’s reminiscent of sucking on a cherry Popsicle stick, balancing sweet caramel, brown sugar, and molasses with persistent oak, cedar shingle, clove, and paprika. A rustic, powerful, and robust bourbon. (JL, Fall 2019)" K&L Notes: The exceptional full strength version of Elijah Craig has become one of t...

Tequila Fortaleza Reposado Tequila (750ml)
Top Pick!
Guillermo Erickson Sauza is a fifth generation tequila maker who hand-crafts beautiful, artisanal tequila at his century-old estate. His tartabuelo (great-great-grandfather) Don Cenobio was the first person to export tequila to the US, way back in the 1860s, starting his own brand in the 1870s. That tequila (Sauza) was passed down the generations before being sold by Guillermo's grandfather in 1976.

This barrel is the outlier among this year's selection of Russell's Reserve. Unlike the other two, which were both distilled in December of 2009 and aged in Camp Nelson Warehouse A, this cask was distilled on November 13th of 2009 and spent nine years on the 6th floor of Warehouse F on the Camp Nelson campus. Like cask 439, this one was was bottled on June 29th of 2019. For whatever reason, it shows more of the earthy aromatics than the other casks. Still it remains very balanced, but is neither as sweet as 439 nor a spicy as 1108. Instead, the aromatic ...

This unusual expression from our dear friends in Bouze-les-Beaune is a slight departure from their usual sherry driven malts. This blend of sherry aged malt whisky and whisky barrel (hogshead) aged grain is similar to their popular "Unique Whisky," but with a higher proportion of malt aged in medium humid conditions. The result is something awesomely round, but unparalleled freshness. The little blend dubbed, "Head to Foot" really has it all. The complete package for anyone looking for an easy drinker that doesn't leave you wishing for more. Rich malt fl...

We didn't say no to a single Caol Ila cask this year. They're too good and too reasonably priced. With the demand for Islay peat as high as it has ever been, the quality of these casks combined with sharp pricing was an absolute no brainer. This Old Particular bottling is charged from a refill hogshead and, as always, bottled with no coloring or chill filtration. The meaty quality that we see in this year's Sovereign cask of Caol Ila is tamed here and while there is decidedly some richness of peat and decadent phenol components, this is really on the gen...

This site has slightly more clay in the soils and the wine is always one of the more rounded and charming in the lineup. Nevertheless, I’ve no doubt it’s going to drink nicely for a decade."

The palate is consistent: intense tropical fruit—guava, mango, coconut—plus hazelnut, smoked almonds, milk chocolate, and salty kelp. It finishes with smoked nuts, toasted tobacco, chalky minerality, dry oak, and persistent fruitiness. Lots to unpack here, and it develops beautifully with water—take your time.

David Schildknecht writes: "A Fleury was allegedly the first French grower (in 1904) to replant Pinot on American root stock after phylloxera; his son (at the time very exceptionally) turned to domaine-bottling to ride out the Depression; and two generations later, Jean-Pierre Fleury became – by a considerable margin – Champagne’s first biodynamic grower. The self-described naturalism and minimalism of this pioneering estate – encompassing its minimal use of sulfur – can sometimes result in Fleury wines with an oxidative overlay or in other respects on t...
