Some of you may have gotten in on our past offering from Kohler that is now long sold out. Thankfully we managed to go back to the well and get another parcel of the 2018 vintage Rebel Red and once again we have an amazing price that makes this one of the best values of the year. Koehler are working on a re-branding of their wines and worked directly with the winery to move along some of their stock with the previous label design. Since here at K&L we're much more about what's inside the bottle, we jumped at the opportunity. The Rebel Red is an old vine Cab - Syrah blend from 50-year-old vines on Koehler's estate in Foxen Canyon. These old, own-rooted vines grow in exceptionally rocky, fractured shale soils to produce small yields of very flavorful grapes. The Rebel Blend pulls together the structure of Cabernet Sauvignon with the perfume and mid-palate flesh of Syrah and combines them into a very satisfying wine. There's plenty of red and black currants, ripe cherry, baking spice, warm rocks, cracked pepper, and dried herbs. Soft and juicy enough to quaff on its own, but balanced, poised, and restrained enough to be versatile with a range of foods, too. This careful barrel selection of estate grown lots sells at the winery for $45+. We took every case they had and are offering it out for under $15! That's 70% off the original SRP! A simply unbeatable value, this is your next house wine for pulling a cork whenever you feel like it!

A blend of Cabernet and Syrah, Rebel is a barrel selection of some of their best old-vine parcels, and I found it to be very fresh with impressive purity. There's a bit of juicy red fruits in a wine that is lively, flavorful, and textured. All too easy to enjoy, it is a dynamic red that will keep you coming back for more. This is a fun discovery that folks will want to grab by the case as it is a wonderful cellar defender of the highest order. Whether a crowd-pleasing red or just an every-night charmer, our price is astounding for what's in the bottle.

Koehler is a family owned operation, producing handcrafted wines from a 40 acre property in Santa Ynez Valley. The "Rebel" is predominantly old vines of Cabernet Sauvignon, blended with Syrah. What you get is a soft, delicate, lighter style blend, with expressive, yet poised flavors and aromatics. On the nose, red berries, rose petals, red figs, peppercorn, menthol, and nutmeg. On palate, fresh and lifted, flavors of red cherries, cranberries, dried herbs, and a nice spice on the finish. What an amazing value! Perfect for a dinner party, as it can pair with a wide variety of dishes.
