2008 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2008 Louis Roederer "Cristal" Brut Champagne

100 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 Cristal is a perfect wine, and Champagne simple does not get any better. This incredible wine offers a beautiful perfume of clean, crisp fruits, layers of complexity in its toasted spice and white flowers, and an utterly seamless, yet powerful style on the palate. This is a rich, decadent expression of Cristal yet it’s still crystalline and elegant, with no sensation of weight, and it just glides over the palate. Haut Couture at its finest and this majestic, profound, legendary Cristal can be drunk anytime over the comin ...Read More »

2008 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2008 Dom Pérignon Brut Champagne

98 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2008 Dom Pérignon is the first time the estate has released a wine out of order (the 2009 was released before the 2008) but the estate loved the wine so much they felt it warranted additional aging. This is a rich, powerful wine that still shows incredible purity and elegance, with a stacked, concentrated feel on the palate. It’s rare to find such a mix of ripe, pure, concentrated fruit paired with this level of purity, focus, and precision. This is a legendary Dom that surpasses all the great vintages of Dom I have experience ...Read More »

2008 Fallet-Dart Vintage Extra Brut Champagne Top Pick!
2008 Fallet-Dart Vintage Extra Brut Champagne

This is the same Champagne as the 2008 Brut, but at a lower dosage - 4g/l instead of 7g/l. The blend for the vintage 2008 is 70% Chardonnay and 30% Pinot Noir with aging of 72 months at the minimum. It is certainly one of the most exciting bottles of vintage Champagne in the store, from a vintage that many in the region consider the best in a generation.

2008 Veuve Clicquot "La Grande Dame" Brut Champagne (Previously $160)

95 points Wine & Spirits: "This is a sunny and delicious 2008, with brightness infusing the wine, from its platinum color to its mineral intensity, transforming its richness and power into cool elegance. Notes of agave and cassia bark add depth, suggesting the complexity this will develop with further bottle age." (12/2018) 95 points Wine Spectator: " An elegant Champagne, powered by a sculpted frame of acidity and minerality, this wears the refined, lacy mousse and well-meshed flavors of black currant, lemon curd, toast and marzipan like finely tailor ...Read More »

2008 Mortlach 10 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) Top Pick!
2008 Mortlach 10 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The Mortlach distillery is something of an enigma. Founded in 1823, their famous 2.81 times distillation technique (touted as the reason for the meaty robust flavor) was developed at the turn of the century. The vast majority (circa 95%+) of production is destined for the Johnnie Walker Blenders, where it balances the sweet highland malts and smoky Islays perfectly. One of the few Diageo single malts we've yet to actually visit, the distillery has become an icon for those in the know. For others it's a mouthful - Mort LATCH? No no, Mort LOCK!

2008 Clynelish 10 Year Old "Signatory" K&L Exclusive 1st Fill Bourbon Barrel Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

Goddamn I love Clynelish. I kind of just want to say the word over and over. Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! Cline LEESH! It makes even better if you say it with me. The distillery was built in 1967 on the same site as the original of the same name. Due to malt shortages on Islay, the first distillery was fired back up in 1969 and produced some heavily peated malt that's now legendary, but the new distillery developed its own character and continues to produce some of the very finest malt Scotland has to offer. There's something about this weird little place o ...Read More »

2008 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac (Pre-Arrival)

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Unquestionably one of the gems in the vintage is the 2008 Pontet-Canet, which reminds me of the 2005 with its concentrated, deep, powerful style. Beautiful dark fruits, graphite, obvious minerality, and classic Pauillac lead pencil notes all emerge from this still youthful, full-bodied, and pure 2008 that’s 4-5 years away from maturity and will keep for 30+ years. Hats off to Alfred Tesseron for another awesome wine that ranks up with the crème de la crème of the vintage." (02/2019) 96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "A ca ...Read More »

2008 Deanston 9 Year Old "Bordeaux Red Wine Cask Matured" Cask Strength Highland Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

The folks at Deanston in Scotland's Highland country are on to something! Classic highland malt whisky aged for 9 years in former red Bordeaux casks? Of course! This one-of-a-kind gem shows just the right influence from the casks in the form stewed plum, raspberry, and mocha on the nose. The palate then leads with flavors of candied Black Forest cherries, coffee, and butterscotch, and finishes with an uplifting snap of ginger spice. There's something for everyone in this unconventional, undeniably intriguing dram!

Sweet, open floral notes lead to tobacco, leather, anise and spices as this gorgeous Barolo shows off its class. There is more than enough fruit to balance the tannins, but the 2008 remains tight and in need of further cellaring. Still, there is so much to admire in this classy, mid-weight Barolo. In 2008, the Cannubbio is all class and finesse. Anticipated maturity: 2018-2038. (AG)" (10/2012) Jancis Robinson: " ...Read More »

2008 Gaston Chiquet Vintage Brut Champagne

Eight generations have passed since Nicolas CHIQUET planted his first vine in 1746. In 1919, brothers Fernand and Gaston Chiquet, winemakers born and bred, came together to create their house, Chiquet Brothers. They were pioneers in Champagne, among the very first winemakers to take the initiative (bold at the time), to keep their grapes, turn them into Champagne and sell their own product. In 1923, they were awarded their first medal in Paris, then their gold medal in Epernay. The 2008 is a blend of 60% Pinot Noir and 40% Chardonnay, aged on the lees fo ...Read More »

2008 Tobermory 8 Year Old "John Milroy - K&L Exclusive" Single Refill Butt Cask Strength Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml)

This crazy little Tobermory is exactly what I love about the strange little distillery on the Isle of Mull. It was filled into a used sherry butt in 2008. This distillery sometimes gets a bad rap, in particular because the independently bottled stuff is usually filled into 4th- and 5th-fill cask. The slightly feinty style of the malt really needs some higher quality oak to be softened enough to release its complexity, but once it does it can be an absolute treat. There's no question that Tobermory has the potential to provide incredible depth and enjoyme ...Read More »

2008 Linne Calodo "Rising Tides" Paso Robles Rhône Blend

93 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Intensely perfumed, ripe scents of blackcurrant, black raspberry, fruitcake and violet with a smoky overlay. Juicy and deeply pitched, offering lush black and blue fruit flavors and a suave floral pastille quality. Weightier on the finish, where the floral note lingers with real authority and persistent spiciness. For a burly wine this displays wonderful balance. (JR)" (11/2010) 93 points Wine Spectator: "Juicy wild berry and blackberry jam flavors are intense, pure, focused and persiste ...Read More »

2008 Dehlinger "Goldridge" Russian River Valley Syrah

91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2008 Syrah Goldridge Vineyard is a big, explosive wine loaded with dark fruit, spices, mint, leather and licorice. It shows considerable depth and roundness all the way through to the powerful, insistent finish. Some very slight angular contours remain, yet the wine stands out for its energy and focus. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2018. (AG)" (02/2012) 91 points Vinous: "Bright purple. Highly expressive aromas of black raspberry, candied violet, incense and black pepper, with a hint of five-spice powder in t ...Read More »

2008 Turley "Moore-Earthquake Vineyard" Napa Valley Zinfandel

94-97 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "One of the old classics, Turley’s 2008 Zinfandel Moore Earthquake Vineyard (made from extremely old vines) it exhibits southern Rhone-like characteristics of roasted peppers, licorice, lavender, crushed rocks, kirsch, and other black fruits. With excellent intensity, richness, and full body, it is another example of this sensationally strong, impressive vintage for Turley Wine Cellars. (RP)" (12/2009) K&L Notes: Turley Wine Cellars makes thirty-four wines, the vast majority of which are single vineyard desig ...Read More »

2008 Morlet "En Famille" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir Back In Stock!
2008 Morlet "En Famille" Sonoma Coast Pinot Noir

92 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Good deep red-ruby. Sexy aromas of raspberry, kirsch, strawberry and smoke. Silky-sweet and seamless on the palate, showing a thicker texture and more concentration than the Coteaux Nobles, with strawberry and smoke flavors complicated by a saline nuance. Showing less of the high-pitched fruitiness of the Coteaux Nobles today but this is broader and equally fresh, spreading out impressively on the very long aftertaste.

2008 Red Car "The Fight-Knockout!" Syrah

91 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar: "Inky ruby. Highly nuanced nose evokes blackberry, licorice, violet, bitter chocolate and black olive. Tightly wound on entry, then fleshes out with air to offer sweet black and blue fruit and licorice flavors and a lashing of cracked pepper. Quite youthful and dominated by its structure right now but this shows excellent potential. (ST) 91+" (06/2011) 90 points Wine Spectator: "Tightly wound, firm and spicy, with cedar, tobacco, dried berry, berry jam and anise notes that are full-bodied, focuse ...Read More »

2008 La Violette, Pomerol

95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Fashioned from yields of 18 hectoliters per hectare with 13.5% natural alcohol, the opaque ruby-hued 2008 exhibits tell-tale floral notes intertwined with raspberries, sweet black cherries, licorice and cassis. Medium to full-bodied, beautifully concentrated and strikingly pure as well as multilayered, the 2008, despite its precociousness, will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for 20-25 years. It is one of the top successes of the vintage. (RP)" (05/2011) 90 points Stephen Tanzer's International Wi ...Read More »
