2018 Gianni Gagliardo "Fallegro" Roero
Review Date: 11-18-2019
Textured body, creamy and elegant Vermentino. Vivid acidity, fresh and crisp finish and slight herbal notes on the nose and flavor profile which makes it a fantastic companion to grilled meats and also many seafood dishes also anything roasted with herbs.

2015 Xavier Vignon Lirac
Review Date: 11-18-2019
Silky and smooth. Who wouldn't want that ? Dark, lush fruits with a hint of creamy cocoa and a touch of vanilla. It is elegant, delicious and gentle. I paired it with a semi- soft cheese and dried salami which was perfect and satisfying.

2018 Les Roches Sauvignon Touraine
Review Date: 11-18-2019
Liquid Summer breeze in a bottle! Easy, breezy, beautiful wine this is. Fresh, light, bright, delicate and tasteful. You can't find any white wine for this price that will give you so much satisfaction. It is a crowd pleaser but that doesn't mean it falls short with a sophisticated palate.

2016 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc
Review Date: 11-18-2019
Dense, serious intense flavors that work together in such a harmony; so, as serious this wine is, it will not be overwhelming at all. Black currant, black berries and a touch of smokiness. Smells like pine trees and has a dash of herbal notes on the nose. It is a beautiful Cab-dominant wine with long-lasting finish, and a divine addition to your steak dinner.

2017 Jean-Francois Mérieau Côt "Cent Visages" Touraine Rouge

2017 Clos de l'Anhel "Les Terrassettes" Corbières
Review Date: 11-18-2019
Think about a wine that satisfies your palate in every aspect? Well think no further! This was one of the first few wines I tasted when I joined K&L and I was so taken by how amazing and memorable it was. So memorable that I kept thinking about drinking it again and again. This lush, spice fest, mouthwatering wine has a harmony of meaty flavors. Deep, dark, approachable yet never boring , herbaceous and delightful. The dominant grape in this wine is Carignan which has a balanced flavor profile without the bitter tannin. This wine pairs well with more hearty food as well as lighter dishes. The Wine maker Sophie is a one woman do it all. She is the wine maker and manages everything herself. If all these incredible elements are not enough, add being Organic and Bio-dynamic to this magical potion in the form of wine!

2017 Luli Santa Lucia Highlands Syrah
Review Date: 11-18-2019
For The Love of wine! This wine is a masterpiece. It is the result of teamwork between renowned winemaker Jeff Pisoni and Master Sommelier Sara Floyd. The wine is deep purple in color with abundant aroma of blueberries and violets with layers of complexity framed by firm but ripe tannins along with a hint of leather and clove. It was fermented with 50% whole cluster inclusion and was aged in 20% new oak for 18 months. This very special wine is beauty-in-a-bottle and is easily one of THE best $20 wines on the market.

2015 North Valley (Soter) "Reserve" Williamette Valley Pinot Noir
Review Date: 11-18-2019
let me just say if you are someone who is very precise about their wine, they can be assured to get excited and fired up about this pinot Noir. Beautiful aromas of fresh raspberry, strawberry and sweet cherries. On the palate, it shows primary flavors of Dark candied cherry and pomegranate, followed by lush mocha and cocoa powder. The finish is smooth, long and polished.

2018 Te Mata Gamay Noir Hawkes Bay New Zealand
Review Date: 11-18-2019
Maybe it's a little unorthodox to go for Gmay Noir from New Zealand but being different could lead to discovering new and amazing things. This beautiful combination of light fruit and bright acidity wine, I found difficult not to love was an exciting surprise. So well structured and balanced. This light to medium red with red berries and a hint of Mocha could be just what your Holiday gatherings need.

2018 Skouras Moscofilero Péloponnèse Greece
Review Date: 10-09-2019
Moschofilero is an aromatic white grape of Greek origin with a pink/purple skin, quite spicy flavor, and good acidity. This wine offers opulent aromas of honeysuckle and wild jasmine. It is light, with vigorous acidity. Long finish, great balance, a touch of lime, and a gentle zest will make this interesting Greek white a delightful addition to dress up your seafood dishes or Mediterranean salads with Kalamata olives and feta cheese.

2015 Einaudi "Ludo" Barolo
Review Date: 10-09-2019
Rich, expressive characters of candied cherries, spice and ripe dark fruits, tar, and dried herbs. It is not considered too young to consume. There are aromas of warm spices, such as nutmeg and clove, in the body, followed by beautiful, gripping, yet gentle enough tannins.

have you ever imagined if Summer was liquid and you could drink it in the form of wine, how would it taste? This is that wine that will put an end to your wondering. It is crisp, light, bright mild acidity.The classic pepper nose and a soft tangy green apple tone. It is a perfect Summer sipper by the pool, in the backyard or simply in your home. It also is the absolute party wine that will please the crowd. Enjoy it on its own but it also pairs well with roasted vegetables such as asparagus, Brussels Sprouts, all kinds of Salads and seafood.

A great substitute for a Chablis if you want to branch out. Clean, bright style of Chardonnay with a mild pleasant creamy texture. Seductive flavors of pear and apples. It reminded me of a clean gorgeous river with wet little rocks at the bottom which really translates to freshness and minerality.

2018 Field Recordings Blanc de Franc Paso Robles
Review Date: 06-11-2019
Pét-Nat you say ? Light, Natural and Fizzy! the wine is bottled prior to fully completing its first fermentation, allowing carbon dioxide to be produced by the natural sugars found in the grapes. Pét-Nat production is variable and can be difficult to control and that is why it requires a level of expertise on the winemaker’s part. The end result is Cloudy, creamy, light with a hint of green apples and absolutely delicious.

2015 Pinna Fidelis Crianza Ribera del Duero
Review Date: 05-07-2019
A more zen version of a Napa cab is this big, bold and textured wine. It is lush, rich but with plenty of old-world sensibility and much less overpowering oak finish. It is defiantly a beautiful vibrant wine with depth and noticeable firm body but it is so balanced and the dark inky fruit taste profile, mild oak, a touch of spice all work in such harmony that you can enjoy this voluptuous wine without feeling overwhelmed. It is a very food friendly red wine. so go on and give yourself a chance to try this exciting special wine for such an affordable price.
