2017 BOLD Wine Co. Monterey County Pinot Noir
Top Pick!
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Sommelier-turned-winemaker Chris Miller is acutely aware of value in the Pinot Noir market, and this is a new leader in that category. Bing cherry, roasted pork and pepper show on the nose, while the palate packs tangy pomegranate with bay leaf, juniper and wild sage. *Editor's Choice* (MK)" (10/2019)

2018 Bonny Doon Vineyard "Le Cigare Volant - Cuvee Oumuamua" Monterey County Rhône Blend
Top Pick!
93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Randall Grahm’s ever-evolving ideology shifted again for the new label and blend of this bottling, which includes 52% Grenache, 35% Cinsault and 13% Syrah. Aromas of plum, cracked pepper, crumpled carnations and dried mint lead into a bright, refreshing palate of hibiscus, anise and a curry-like spice. *Editors' Choice* (MK)" (10/2019) 91 points Vinous: "Deep, shimmering red. Displays lively red berry, cherry and floral qualities on the nose, along with building suggestions of exotic spices and succulent herbs. Juicy and pre...

The K&L Kalinda wines are consistently among the best values in our store. We work closely with top producers to bring you first-rate wine at reasonable prices. We can't reveal our sources, but we can say that this is a steal. Certainly not a household name, Lime Kiln Valley is situated in San Benito County and was granted AVA status in 1982 (the same year as nearby Chalone), and before Calera's Mt. Harlan AVA (1990) which Lime Kiln Valley borders. These unorthodox Pinot Noir terroirs are understood to be successful because of their limestone subsoils. T...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "There are compelling aromas of chalk and clay on the nose of this appellation blend, along with bright scents of lime zest, grapefruit peel and butter. The palate is bolstered by lemony acidity and the fleshy mouthfeel delivers flavors of nectarine, Asian pear and more clay. *Editors' Choice* (MK)" (04/2019)

94 points Wine Enthusiast: "Clean, delicate and yet full aromas of lemon cream, toast, peach blossom and chalk show on the lovely nose of this bottling from a vineyard that sits above Highway 101 in Prunedale. The chalky texture takes hold immediately on the palate, with flavors of white peach and seared nectarine that are chiseled by acidity and finish on an intriguing chive note. (MK)" (07/2019) K&L Notes: Seabold Cellars is the creation of Master Sommelier Chris Miller. Chris worked harvests for 15+ years up-and-down the coast while running the wine...


Wine Spectator: "Floral hints accent the snappy white fruit and citrus flavors. Taut midpalate, with a finish that lingers with details of fennel and shiso leaf. (MK)" (07/2019)
Price: $19.95


92 points Wine Enthusiast: "This bottling by Ian Brand always packs bang for the buck, but he really nailed it in the 2017 vintage. Clean and delicate aromas of Asian pear, lemon rind and edgy chalk lead into a racy, crisp and tightly wound palate. Flavors of grapefruit, nectarine, blanched almond and sea salt are delicious. *Editors' Choice* (MK)" (02/2019) K&L Notes: This wine is recommended among a selection of Chardonnays in our September 16, 2019 newsletter: "The Golden Era of Golden State Chardonnay." K&L Domestic wine buyer Ryan Woodhouse says: ...


From the winery:"Cuvée Los Gatos is a special wine made by Testarossa Winery to pay homage to the town of Los Gatos, where the historic novitiate winery was built in 1888 and continues to produce wine today. For Testarossa’s Cuvée Los Gatos releases, co-founders Rob and Diana Jensen and Director of Winemaking Bill Brosseau select and combine vineyard lots from highly regarded growing districts. For this bottling, the grapes were sourced from the Central Coast AVA. The areas’ close proximity to Monterey Bay makes for a cool climate, with one of California...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "This is a great entry-level wine from Russell Joyce, starting with aromas of candied Bing cherry, earthy forest floor and umami-laced shiitake mushrooms. The palate is bright and snappy with raspberry, marjoram, bay leaf and pine needle flavors, framed by taut tannins and brilliant acidity. (MK)" (07/2019) K&L Notes: Winemaker's Notes: "The maritime influences of the Monterey Submarine Canyon, measuring a full one mile in depth from top to bottom, is the inspiration for this Pinot Noir. The grapes were mostly de-stemmed with...

92 points Wine Enthusiast: "Very light in the glass, this wine begins a bit shy on the nose but soon shows precise aromas of nectarine, chalk, honeysuckle and melon rind. The palate grips with texture, carrying flavors of lemon, white peach and lychee. (MK)" (12/2019)

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "Clean and crisp aromas of pomegranate and raspberry are brushed with a hint of cola spice on the nose of this bottling. The palate is fresh and tangy with red-plum and hibiscus flavors that are lifted with a pinch of white pepper. (MK)" (06/2019)

92 points James Suckling: "Aromas of toffee, dark apples and dried pineapple. Full to medium body with fresh and clean flavors and a resilient and bright finish. Dense yet fresh mouthfeel. Drink now." (02/2019)

95 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2016 Coastview Vineyard Pinot Noir is one of the more delicate wines, with pretty red fruits, smoked earth, spring flowers, and spice aromas and flavors. Like all of Bradley's wines, it has juicy acidity and terrific purity, is medium-bodied, elegant and lively. It also has a vibrant, poised style that's going to age beautifully. It's one of my favorites in the lineup but needs 3-4 years of bottle age. This saw 88% whole clusters and spent 18 months in 42% new French oak." (02/2019) 93 points Vinous: "A classy, polished wine...

This wine is recommended among a selection of Chardonnays in our September 16, 2019 newsletter. Winemaker's notes: "The maritime influences of the Monterey Submarine Canyon, measuring a full one mile in depth from top to bottom, is the inspiration for this Chardonnay. The fruit for this Chardonnay comes from two separate vineyards. Franscioni Vineyard is located at the base of the Gabilan Mountain Range and benefits from close proximity to the Monterey Bay with small deposits of limestone. Zabala Vineyard is located in Arroyo Seco and benefits from being...

Poppy was founded in 2003 by the Silva family, which has enjoyed four decades of agricultural history in California's Central Valley. The brand name honors the state flower of California.
Price: $12.95

Ian Brand makes no-nonsense, low-key stunners from some of the finest yet mostly unheard-of vineyard sites in Monterey County. His La Marea wines are a nod to Spanish winemaking heritage. The Kristy Vineyard Albariño is sourced entirely from a vineyard situated next to the Salinas river on a bed of calcium-rich shale soils. The resulting wine is a dead ringer for Rias Baixas - cool, energetic, and redolent of sea-influenced aromas and flavors. Quite possibly the most authentic domestic Albariño on the market today.

Winemaker's Notes: "Pinot Noir from Escolle Vineyard (Santa Lucia Highlands), Pinot Meunier from Dommen Vineyard (Russian River), Chardonnay from Massa Estate (Monterey), Chardonnay from Rorick Heritage Vineyard (Sierra Foothills), Chardonnay from Piper Ranch (Mendocino Ridge). Our sparkling blend is sourced from a combination of organic and dry-farmed sites. The grapes were harvested at 19 brix, slightly riper than is typical in Champagne. These cool climate sites retain their acidity amazingly well even at slightly higher ripeness. The wine showcases t...

Robert Parker said of this wine: "This is another immensely impressive wine emanating from the Pisoni Vineyard in the Santa Lucia highlands. Given the high quality of all the Pisoni Pinot Noirs made by many different producers (Ojai, Peter Michael, Siduri, etc.), it appears I need to visit this vineyard on a future trip. There is no doubting the serious fruit coming out of this source. The color is a dark ruby/purple, and the nose offers up loamy soil scents intermixed with gobs of black cherry/plum-like fruit notes. The wine displays medium to full body...

Winemaker's notes: "Scholarly research on Malvasia Bianca may never rise to the level of cottage industry, but should a definitive history of aromatic varieties in California be penned in some miraculous future, the Old Ones will report that after a string of three zaftig vintages , Malvasia returned with a nerve and minty freshness last seen in 2012. Once again, Alpine herbs and the echo of cinchona and gentian amari run as fellow travelers with the perfume of fruits and flowers more commonly encountered in vini californium. 2018 remains turned up to 11...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Few vintners get a crack at this stunning vineyard atop the Carmel Valley, but Samuel Louis Smith does it justice. Rustic red-cherry and hearty nutmeg aromas lead into a palate full of snappy yet dark pomegranate and herbs. *Editor's Choice* (MK)" (05/2019) K&L Notes: Winemaker's notes: "Ruby red and medium bodied. Aromas of raspberry, pine forest, cola, and dried rose are supported by flavors of cranberry and tart cherry. Partial whole cluster fermentation lends a savory edge and elegant tannins. Albatross Ridge Vineyard i...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "This wine starts with plush aromas of yellow melon, plumeria, wild lime sorbet and a hint of cream. There is ample zip to the palate, where acidity and a strong floral character keep the honeydew and white peach flavors in check. (MK)" (12/2018)

96 points Wine Enthusiast: "There’s a tremendous herbal array on the nose of this superb wine, as bay leaf and peppercorn lead into more rugged aromas of singed fur, game and mulberry jam. That animalistic character extends to the palate, where it meets with snappy black raspberry, roasted cocoa and cappuccino flavors, all leveled by piney herbs. *Editors’ Choice* (MK)" (07/2019) 91 points Vinous: "Bright ruby-red. Lively, smoke-accented red berry and candied rose scents display impressive clarity and energy. Sweet and energetic in style, offering spic...

93 points Wine Enthusiast: "Very light and bright, this bottling from one of the appellation’s northernmost and coolest sites shows honeysuckle and more white flowers on the subtle, delicate and yet inviting nose. There’s a vibrant tension on the sip, where chalky white-rock flavors dance with lemon zest for a laser-sharp expression. (MK)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: From Matt Kettmann: "Ian Brand, The SF Chronicle’s 2018 Winemaker of the Year, is quite possibly the most interesting vintner in Monterey County today.

Taking its name from making wine in the land of "milk and honey" (mooing cows and buzzing bees) Moobuzz produces a range of wines from California's Central Coast and Paso Robles AVA. Winery tasting note: "Gorgeous aromas of earthy mushrooms and bright red fruit are highlighted by notes of fresh violet and ripe plum. The palate expands to include a savory abundance of red currant, dark cherry, rich mocha and wild strawberry on a long, velvety finish."
Price: $14.99

Winemaker's Notes: Boer amply demonstrates why the Chalone AVA is so utterly distinctive. Nearly 2000’ up in the Gabilan Range by Pinnacles National Park, it boasts a vanishingly rare amalgam of decomposing granite [from the eruption 26 million years ago of the now-extinct Neenach volcano] and soft, chalky limestone [remnant of an ancient seabed uplifted by tectonic subduction] with extreme daily temperature swings. The unusual geology juxtaposes power and tannin against elegance and detail, while the wide 50 degree diurnal shift plugs 220 volts of clean...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "A classic Sauvignon Blanc at a fair price, this bottling starts with fresh and inviting aromas of apple blossom and red apple on the nose. Crisp and clean on the palate, it's tightly woven structure reveals lemon wedge and sliced Granny Smith apple flavors. *Editors' Choice* (MK)" (04/2019) Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The 2016 Sauvignon Blanc opens with green apples, grapefruit and lemon zest notes with hints of dried herbs, coriander seed and paraffin. Medium-bodied, zippy and zesty in the mouth, it gives a good intensi...

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "While it was a difficult vintage for Zinfandel due to the heat, you wouldn’t know that by tasting these Zinfandels from Carlisle. The 2017 Zinfandel Sonoma County offers a beautiful sense of elegance and purity as well as pretty cherry fruits, violets, flowers, and spice. It’s not a heavyweight yet shines for its seamless texture, integrated acidity, and a great finish. It’s a steal at the price." (06/2019) 90-93 points Vinous: "The 2017 Zinfandel (Sonoma County) is pliant and super-expressive, not to mention incredibly deliciou...

Sean Minor founded Four Bears, or "4B," in 2005 as a distinct focus on competitively priced varietal wines. Winery notes: "displays aromas of white peach, pears and tropical nuances with subtle notes of butter. On the entry, pear, pineapple and green apple flavors are framed by nice acidity which integrates well with the medium body mouth feel. Those same fruit flavors evolve into a hint of minerality that adds complexity to the lengthy finish."
Price: $11.99

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Broad and creamy aromas are cut by lemon juice and crushed chalk on the approachable nose of this bottling. The smoky quality extends to the palate, where toasted almond, ripe peach and salted lemons make for a mouthwatering experience. (MK)" (08/2019)

2013 Big Basin Vineyards "Coastview Vineyard" Monterey County Pinot Noir
New!
93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "I loved the fruit in the 2013 Pinot Noir Coastview Vineyard and it’s one of the more textured, layered wines in the lineup. Crushed rocks, rose petals, violets, leather and assorted, perfumed Pinot Noir fruit all emerge from this medium-bodied, balanced, juicy and straight up delicious wine. It shows the leaner, fresher style of the estate, yet has texture. Fermented with 30% whole clusters, give it a year or so and drink bottles through 2023." 93 points Vinous: "Big Basin's 2013 Pinot Noir Coastview Vineyard is...

91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This mix of 56% Grenache, 37% Syrah and 7% Tempranillo is extra-fresh upon opening the twist-top bottle, showing aromas of raspberry, sagebrush and white pepper. The palate also combines fresh red fruit, pepper and herbs, making for a zesty sip. *Editors' Choice* (MK)" (04/2019)

Matt Kettmann on I. Brand: "Ian Brand is quite possibly the most interesting vintner in Monterey County today. The Connecticut-raised, former Bonny Doon cellar rat and one-time assistant at Big Basin is sourcing from so many distinct, often old-vine sites, and spearheading so many different consulting projects. Though quite varied in styles and grapes, the wines are all very energetic, distinctive and extremely fairly priced.

Seabold Cellars is the creation of Master Sommelier Chris Miller. Chris worked harvests for 15+ years up-and-down the coast while running the wine programs for some of the country's most elite restaurants. He finally dove full-time into making wine, settling into the Monterey Bay area.

91 points James Suckling: "Deep and dark aromas and flavors of dried strawberries and cherries follow through to a full body, juicy fruit and a one-dimensional and fruity finish. Underlying, solid tannins." (02/2019) 91 points Wine Enthusiast: "This bottling begins with aromas of cherry and berry along with wild mint and dried tarragon. Strong hits of licorice and star anise play well with the berry backdrop on the palate. *Editors’ Choice.* (MK)" (10/2019)

Winemaker's Notes: "Pale pink and salmon hues. Fruit forward aromas highlighting peach, strawberry, clementine and grated orange zest with subtle nuances of ripe cherry and watermelon. Floral notes of white flowers and rose petals. A small bit of salinity on the nose, hinting at pink Himalayan Sea salt. Flavors of Green apple, watermelon, white peach and kiwi fruit with a sneaky soft acidity on the front of the palate and powerful fruit/acid crisp lingering finish.

Smooth and broad in style, delivering good closing punch and a warm, lingering suggestion of peach nectar.

93 points Vinous: "The 2016 Chardonnay Coastview Vineyard is a big wine built on phenolics and savoriness rather than on overt fruit. There is a real sense of mountain structure running through the wine. Powerful and ample in feel, with superb freshness, the 2016 offers terrific nuance as well as complexity. I am usually not one to pay a huge amount of attention to numbers, but at 13.7% alcohol, the Coastview is a bit riper than most Chardonnays have been here in the past. And that approach works nicely.

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "From the Santa Cruz Mountains south of Monterey, the 2016 Pinot Noir Rosella's Vineyard is one of the more exotic, perfumed wines in the lineup, which is the hallmark of this vineyard. Cherry blossoms, wild strawberries, orange peel, and violet notes give way to a floral, elegant, nuanced 2016 that has good acidity as well as texture. It’s going to be even better this time next year and keep for 7-8 years. 93+" (06/2018) 92 points Wine Spectator: "Focused and juicy, featuring effusive cherry, raspberry and red plum flavors, back...
