2016 Grand Napa Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon (Previously $135) (Previously $135)
Top Pick!
94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Deep garnet-black in color, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford has a nose of cassis, violets, cedar and camphor with chocolate and aniseed in the background. Medium to full-bodied and grainy, it is earthy in the mouth, finishing long and mineral laced. (LPB) 94+" (12/2018) 92 points James Suckling: "Dark-plum, blackberry and chocolate aromas with a subtly leafy edge on the nose. The palate delivers a bright, assertive impression with redder plums, raspberries and a fresh, zesty finish." (11/2019) K&L Note...

2014 Varner "Hidden Block - Spring Ridge Vineyard" Santa Cruz Mountains Pinot Noir (Previously $45) (Previously $45)
Top Pick!
93 points Vinous: "The 2014 Pinot Noir Hidden Block is the most immediate and dense of the four Pinots in the Varner range. A core of sweet red cherry and plum fruit fills out the wine's mid-weight frame effortlessly. Round, pliant and totally seductive, the 2014 has a lot to offer, including tons of near and medium-term appeal. (AG)" (08/2018) 92 points Jeb Dunnuck: "Mostly destemmed and brought up in 25% new French oak, the medium ruby-colored 2014 Pinot Noir Hidden Block Spring Ridge Vineyard reveals a medium ruby color as well as impressive red and...

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "These wines are made by Keith Emerson at the Vineyard 29 winemaking facility. Looking first at the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley, this beauty is 100% varietal and was brought up in 40% new French oak. It offers a classic feel in its cassis and candied cherry fruits and has complex floral and fruitcake notes, medium to full body, and considerable elegance and purity as well as silky tannins. Its subtle, understated style grows on you with time in the glass, and it’s ideal for drinking over the coming 10-15 years." (01/2019) ...

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.

2013 Sbragia "Godspeed Vineyard" Mt. Veeder Cabernet Sauvignon (Elsewhere $80) (Elsewhere $80)
Top Pick!
93-95 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "As for the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Godspeed, this wine is still in barrel. This demonstrates why, as good as 2013 is, this is an exceptional, singular, and possibly once-in-a-lifetime vintage for Bordeaux varietals in Napa. An inkier, bluish/purple color with a stunning sense of blueberries, white flowers and forest floor are followed by an opulent, full-bodied wine with terrific integration of acidity, tannin and alcohol. It tops the charts at 15.3% alcohol, but otherwise has identical analytical numbers to t...

92 points Vinous: "Deep vivid red. Intensely perfumed red and blue fruit liqueur and rose oil aromas are complemented by suggestions of vanilla and Asian spices. Juicy and sharply focused on the palate, offering sweet black raspberry, cherry cola and floral pastille flavors and a spicy touch of white pepper. Shows very good clarity, strong persistence and spicy lift on the finish, which features velvety tannins and repeating florality.

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....

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...

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "All three of these wines from Edward Snider (Lewis is Edward’s middle name) are brilliant. The 2016 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon (96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, brought up all in new oak) offers a gorgeously rich, textured, yet also weighty style as well as impressive Cabernet fruit, tobacco, and earthy aromas and flavors. It has a layered, balanced texture, fine tannins, and a great, great finish, and as Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon goes, it’s a smoking value." (01/2019) K&L Notes: Before founding Edward Lewis ...

2005 d'Yquem, Sauternes
Back In Stock!

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "This isn’t sweet, but just so wonderfully rich. It’s the concentration of botrytis that makes the wine. The texture is velvet, but with a spicy bite to it. Apricot, honey and marzipan all contribute to a wine that will age over decades. *Cellar Selection* (RV)" (12/2009) 97 points Wine Spectator: "This has a deliciously pure feel, with juicy, inviting green plum, ginger, heather, creamed pineapple and Jonagold apple flavors all melded together and gliding through the lengthy finish, which echoes with lilting flowers and drie...

2015 Keller Estate "La Cruz Vineyard" Sonoma Coast Chardonnay (Elsewhere $40) (Elsewhere $40)
Back In Stock!
94 points Wine Enthusiast: "This white is bold and brawny in up-front apple and mango flavors and broadly structured and expansive on the palate in fleshy lush waves. An exotic back note of vanilla butterscotch beckons amid a tight tart finish that freshens as it lingers. (VB)" (07/2018) K&L Notes: The 2015 La Cruz Chard is a big hit with K&L staff. See reviews below! Winemaker's notes: "La Cruz Chardonnay is a classic Burgundian style Chardonnay, fermented in barrel with native yeasts and aged sur lie. Keller Estate produces wines exclusively from the...

95 points Vinous: "Bright red. Suave, smoke-accented aromas of raspberry preserves, pungent flowers, incense and cola, along with a hint of allspice in the background. Sappy and expansive on the palate, offering intense red berry, allspice and floral pastille flavors that are sharpened by a jolt of zesty acidity. Shows superb clarity and spicy bite on a long, penetrating finish shaped by silky, even tannins. The interplay of power and finesse here is really something. (JR)" (01/2018) 93 points Wine & Spirits: "Cristom’s estate blend is firm and concent...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is a hint of wet chalk stone on the nose, along with crisp apple and a touch of lemon. The palate then amplifies both the chalky impression and the creamy mellow richness of the apple and the autolysis. This is restrained but very classic, understated but deeply satisfying with its creamy mousse, a hint of stone and the fruit-accentuated backdrop. The mousse is fine and the finish is wonderfully dry. (AK)" (11/2018) 90 points Vinous: "Pale straw with a persistent mousse. White stone fruit and fresh citrus on the delica...

96 points Jeb Dunnuck: "A blend of Grenache and Syrah that was brought up in a mix of clay tanks and 500-liter barrels, the 2017 Côtes du Roussillon Villages Compartir offers an awesome nose of black raspberries, crushed flowers, exotic spices, and earth, with just hints of subtle background oak. This full-bodied beauty has tons of charm, a layered, seamless texture, and enough structure to keep for upward of a decade. It’s just another brilliant wine from this great winemaker." (11/2018)

2015 A to Z Oregon Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Pale to medium ruby-purple in color, the 2015 Oregon Pinot Noir gives a good intensity of warm red berry/red cherry cordial notes with a bit of baking spices and floral notes in the background. The medium-bodied palate is soft and juicy with a slight grip of chewy tannins and a red berry-laced finish. (LPB)" (08/2017) Wine & Spirits: "Classic Oregon scents of strawberries and briary cherry lead in this vinous, assertive pinot noir. The finish is leesy and a bit phenolic; give it a chill and serve with duck sausage." (02/...

Lagavulin 16 Year Old Islay Single Malt Scotch Whisky (750ml) (Elsewhere $100) (Elsewhere $100)
Top Pick!
90-95 points Wine Enthusiast: "Soy sauce, olive brine, peat, honey, oloroso Sherry, brewer’s yeast, bread dough, barley malt and cigar smoke in the bouquet. The flavor that magically includes the innate intense peatiness of Islay malts and the masterly employment of oak barrels phase defines “classy Islay.” Concludes sweetly, without sacrificing the tangy, astringent peatiness that is inherent. Gorgeous. *Best Buy* " (06/2006) 94 points Whisky Advocate: "An old classic, but how do the newest bottlings fare? Rich, chewy, slightly oily texture. Deep peat...

Winery notes: The 2016 shows a more precise and energetic side of this massively popular Russian River favorite. While the wine is definitely the fullest-bodied Pinot we made this year, it maintains an alluring sense of balance and more than a few of us here at EK think it’s one of our best yet. Everything we love about this prime Russian River location and the famed Swan clone is on display: Loads of creamy, smoky, ripe Bing and black cherries dosed with warm baking spices (clove and nutmeg predominantly) and the typically long, satisfying Stiling fini...

97 points Wine Enthusiast: "With its clean, neutral profile, this graceful gin works well with just about anything, from Aviation cocktails (natch) to bone-dry Martinis. On the palate, look for bewitching hints of caraway, juniper, grapefruit and a dry, faintly spicy finish. (KN)" (04/2012) K&L Notes: Aviation Gin is a unique partnership between Lee Medoff and Christian Krogstad of House Spirits Distilling in Portland, OR, and mixologist Ryan Magarian of Liquid Kitchen in Seattle, WA. Believed to the first collaboration of its kind, Aviation Gin evolve...

94 points Vinous: "Vivid red. A complex, highly perfumed bouquet evokes fresh red berries, baking spices and potpourri; hints of candied rose and rhubarb emerge with aeration. Juicy black raspberry and boysenberry flavors slowly stretch out and become sweeter and deeper on the back half. Shows excellent clarity and floral thrust on the impressively persistent finish, which is supported by harmonious tannins that fold quickly into the lingering, sappy fruit. (JR)" (06/2019) 92 points Wine Enthusiast: "A lot of Oregon vintners are eager to get on Shea's ...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "There is a strong woody touch to the nose of this bottling along with dried peach and dried mango aromas. The palate begins with a strong citrus-peel flavor then leads into green-pear and cider-apple flavors. The finish is a unique touch of kaffir lime leaf and lemongrass, which would go well with a wide variety of food. (MK)" (12/2018)

92 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Take, for example, the 2014 Zinfandel Rattlesnake, a blend of 96% Zinfandel and 4% Petite Sirah with 85% from the Monte Rosso Vineyard and the balance from other Gallo vineyards. It is aged in all French oak, of which 23% is new. A whopper at 16% natural alcohol, the wine has classic Zinfandel characteristics of Provençal spices, roasted herbs, pepper and oodles of briary black raspberry and black cherry fruit. It cuts a big swath across the palate with loads of glycerin and an unctuous, thick, juicy quality that...

Monica Larner writes: "I’ve always admired the enthusiasm that emanates from Peter Zemmer and his estate.

Chante Cigale means singing cicada (a type of grasshopper/cricket), and the Cicada red is their early-drinking, everyday Grenache-Carignan blend. The property has been in the family since the 19th century and is currently run by Alexandre Favier, who assumed the reins at the ripe old age of 20. The domaine is planted to 40 hectares of red varietals and 5 hectares of white varietals spread across 45 different parcels throughout the appellation.

96 points James Suckling: "A great vintage from the masterful Kevin Judd. The complexity and deeply integrated and layered character will impress. The lime-curd, lemon-pith, peach and subtle, creamy pastry flavors are all perfectly preserved. Texturally rich, flavorsome and fresh. Drink now. Screw cap." (01/2019) 94 points Vinous: "The 2014 Chardonnay has a well-defined bouquet with scents of passion fruit, beeswax, orange rind and a hint of fresh mushroom. I love the definition and focus here.

94 points Vinous: "The 2016 Petite Syrah Lytton Springs is another fabulous wine in this range. Dense and powerful, the 2016 is endowed with striking depth and tons of character. The Petite tannins are nicely tamed in a wine that offers superb quality and pedigree. Crème de cassis, graphite, lavender and mint are front and center. The 2016 remains quite primary though, so readers need to be patient.

Pikesville Straight Kentucky Rye (750ml) (Previously $50) (Previously $50)
Top Pick!
92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Look for a rich caramel-maple aroma and spice-forward flavor profile, showing allspice and clove, with a layer of vanilla underneath. Dilution tames this rye to show more vanilla, accented with dry touches of oak, leather and cocoa. Aged at least six years. Sip or mix. (KN)" (07/2016) Whisky Advocate: "Heaven Hill’s 80-proof standard Pikesville is a summer favorite, so I was eager to try this. A woody depth to it at 6 years old: 110 proof-hot, stewed plum and horehound candy, and sizzling rye spice behind it. It's a jawbreak...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The first vintage for this cuvée it was created with the idea to improve the quality of the single vineyard. The 2015 Chardonnay Santa Maria Valley is a stunning value that offers classic buttered stone fruits, toasted nuts and honeysuckle in a rich, texture, balanced style. It way over delivers at the price and is a terrific wine. It’s one of the larger production releases as well (536 cases), so hopefully you can find a few bottles."

93 points James Suckling: "A vibrant Chardonnay with a strong array of peach aromas and subtly flinty edges. There’s plenty of interest on the palate and the tension and power is very impressive, as is the clarity. Drink now." (10/2018) 91 points Wine & Spirits: "A classic from a classic winery, this wine feels generous and focused at once. The scents of lemon and chalk suggest a light wine, but with air an impressive depth emerges, a core of ripe pear and apple, chewy and succulent, with enough brisk acidity to shore it all up." (10/2018) 90 points ...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Saturated with dark, almost jammy fruit flavors, this is an extremely flavorful and nicely dry wine that also has great structure. An intensely dark color leads to blackberry and boysenberry aromas, distinctive blackberry and black-pepper flavors and a rich mouthfeel that is well-laced by fine-grained tannins. *Editors' Choice* (JG)" (03/2018)

Faith Armstrong Foster is the winemaker behind the wines of Onward. Her notes on this wine: "I absolutely fell head over heels in love with this heritage field blend site. It is the oldest vineyard in the area, sustainably and dry farmed and planted in the late 1800s (!). This vineyard lies along the edges of both the San Francisco and Suisun Bays. Walking in the vineyard is like walking on a beach, as it sits on 100% sandy soils, giving rise to smaller, hardy bush vines. The vines have been trained so the fruit is shaded from the wind and sun and the...

93 points Wine & Spirits: "Bill Moore purchased this property, east of the town of Napa, in 1983; it included a zinfandel vineyard planted in 1905. The vines that Moore has been able to sustain are now the oldest in Coombsville, a relatively cool place for zinfandel, and the source of this remarkable Napa red. Tilt the glass and the color may shift from vibrant garnet to purple ruby. Smell it and you might find anise and fennel, hibiscus and nettles, all intertwined with cool, formidably tight claret-red fruit. It feels classical, destined for long devel...

The historic Liparita label traces its origin all the way back to the late 1800s. The founder, William Keyes, was an early pioneer in the history of California winemaking, having been among the first to designate an appellation wine with his Howell Mountain Claret. Unfortunately, the combination of Prohibition and then phylloxera took its toll on many wineries early on, including Liparita. The label was revived several times over the past century, but it was Napa Valley grower Spencer Hoopes who finally resurrected the historic name in 2006 by bringing L...
