2017 Nor Wester by Greystone Pinot Noir North Canterbury
Top Pick!
93 points Bob Campbell: "Gently aromatic wine with bright cherry, crushed herb, anise, spice and nutty oak flavours. A supple, accessible, medium-bodied Pinot Noir with character and sophistication. It offers good value at this price." (05/2019) 93 points Sam Kim: "Wonderfully fruited and immediately appealing, the bouquet shows dark cherry, plum, warm spice and cedar characters, leading to a succulent palate that is supple and beautifully rounded. The wine offers terrific fruit intensity and silky texture, finishing long and delicious." (07/2019) 91...

2017 Thistle Ridge Pinot Noir Waipara Valley North Canterbury
Top Pick!
93 points Sam Kim: "A gorgeously styled pinot offering soothing fruit flavours with seductive savoury nuances; the fragrant bouquet shows spiced cherry, dark plum, thyme and almond characters with hints of game and mushrooms. The palate is juicy and beautifully rounded, displaying supple mouthfeel and fine texture, finishing long and silky. At its best: now to 2021." (11/2018) Raymond Chan: "Ruby-red colour with a little depth, lighter edged. The nose is softly packed with a firm core of dark-red cherry and berry fruit entwined with dark herbs and a su...

94 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain is a blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 4% Malbec and a splash of Merlot that spent 18 months in 80% new French oak. It has a darker, mineral-driven style in its blue fruits, smoked earth, charcoal, and graphite aromatics. These give way to a full-bodied, beautifully concentrated, fresh, lively 2015 that’s going to benefit from 3-4 years of bottle age and keep for 15+." (12/2017) 93 points Vinous: "Robert Craig's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon (Howell Mountain) is surprisingly ...

2009 Pontet-Canet, Pauillac
Top Pick!
100 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "An amazing wine in every sense, this classic, full-bodied Pauillac is the quintessential Pontet Canet from proprietor Alfred Tesseron, who continues to reduce yields and farms his vineyards biodynamically – a rarity in Bordeaux. Black as a moonless night, the 2009 Pontet Canet offers up notes of incense, graphite, smoke, licorice, creme de cassis and blackberries. A wine of irrefutable purity, laser-like precision, colossal weight and richness, and sensational freshness, this is a tour de force in winemaking tha...

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)

This has been the #1 selling Italian wine for more than two decades at K&L! You can't get that kind of continued success without a supremely fantastic quality-to-price ratio. The southern Tuscan coast is a wonderful location for winemaking, with stable temperatures and a solid history of quality, yet no fame and fortune. Incredibly priced bargains come out of the region, and the proof is in the bottle. This wine is wonderful, soft, forward and easy-to-drink Sangiovese with an enticing mixture of cherry, plum and earth. Eminently drinkable.
Price: $9.99

From the ultra-premium Hoopes Family Vineyard, this blend is 81% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Sauvignon. 18 months in two-year-old French oak barrels and racked five times. Winemaker note: "The Mutt was inspired by Maya and Sophie, our beloved rescue dogs. The Mutt, like Maya and Sophie, is playful, unique and interesting. The grapes used are the 'seconds'—what we don’t use in our premium wines, we salvage and use in The Mutt. Maya and Sophie aren’t shy about their pedigrees, and we’re not shy about using 'seconds,' either, because they make a wine made from pr...

94 points James Halliday: "Selective-harvested, a mix of new and old clones destemmed and co-fermented, 10 days on skins, then pressed to French barriques (10% new) for mlf and 11 months maturation. Bright, clear crimson-purple-hue; Helen's Hill nailed this wine in a hectic vintage, the fragrant, high-toned flavours of red cherries and berries make oak a vehicle, not an end in itself." (08/2019)

Ettore Spina and his wife, Enrica Bandirola, owners of Sesta di Sopra, planted a new vineyard to Sangiovese in 2005. It has the same Galestro soils as the others, perfect for taming Sangiovese's natural vigor. Unfortunately, in Montalcino all of the Brunello di Montalcino and Rosso di Montalcino vineyards are all registered and controlled, and they aren't allowing any more to be added right now, so the wine that comes from this new vineyard has to be designated an IGT (Indicates Geographic Tipicity).

91 points Wine Spectator: "Ripe and warm in feel, featuring blackberry and boysenberry puree flavors, supported by a graphite spine and carrying through an anise- and lavender-infused finish, all while the fruit easily keeps pace. Solid. (JM)" (10/2019) K&L Notes: Jacques Coipel worked in the petrol industry until 2002 when he decided to change career paths and enter the wine business. He purchased an exceptional site in the Cotes du Rhone Village Cru of Valreas. His vineyards sit at around 1,200 feet with a mix of clay, limestone and gravel making up ...

91 points James Suckling: "Bright and fruity with bilberries, citrus and earl grey tea. Citrusy and fine on the light-to medium-bodied palate. Firm but generous tannins. Drink now." (11/2019) K&L Notes: From the producer: "The Ricci family was born in 1150; Palazzo Ricci, one of the most beautiful Renaissance palaces of Montepulciano, was commissioned by Cardinal Giovanni Ricci in 1534 by the best architect of the moment, the Sienese Baldassarre Peruzzi and finished being constructed in 1562. The Cantina De’Ricci was part of the project for the Palace...

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...

2017 Kalinda Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Top Pick!
We'd love to tell you all about the storied estate from which we sourced this superb, classic example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, but we can't. For decades now, our Kalinda private label has been providing K&L customers with awesome wines at a fraction of what they'd normally pay under the producers' mainstay labels. That being said, no producer wants their wines on the market for less than what they'd usually sell for, so the trade-off is anonymity. While we have to remain quiet about the source of this beauty, we can tell you that wine from this...

While the Jimmy Watson Memorial Trophy may be unfamiliar to many here in the States, in Australia it is among the most prestigious honors a wine can receive. As our Aussie buyer Thomas Smith mentions, if our shipment of this wine wasn’t on the water when it got this accolade, there would be no way we could get this kind of quantity or pricing. We’re thrilled to be able to share this lucky break with our clients. We're even more excited to find the wine is every bit as good as its billing. We’ve been singing the praises of Xanadu for years now, so it only...

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "Blending 42% Cabernet Sauvignon, 19% Malbec, 19% Merlot, 14% Cabernet Franc and 6% Petit Verdot, this is an elegant, structured red, elongated by silky tannins. Cedar, sage, red currant and turned earth provide an understated savory personality. (VB) " (12/2018) Wine Spectator: "Firm and spicy, featuring a dash of herb and dill-laced oak and a tight core of raw-textured dark fruit, crushed rock and gravel flavors. Given the muscle and tannic flex, this will benefit from cellaring. (JL)" (11/2018) Wine & Spirits: "Bold, jui...

Château Bois-Malot is located in St-Loubes and situated on the shoreline of the Dordogne River. The soils are clay and light limestone with a subsoil of red pebbles and clay.

93 points Jeb Dunnuck: "The only 2017 presented, the 2017 Crozes-Hermitage Cuvée Christophe comes from older vines (65- to 70-year-old vines) and was brought up in 70% new French oak. Its saturated purple color is followed by a ripe, powerful bouquet of blackberries, blackcurrants, ground pepper, saddle leather, and leafy herbs. With subtle background oak, full body, ripe tannins, and terrific balance, it's a big rich, stacked Crozes Hermitage that will benefit from 2-3 years of bottle age and keep for a decade or more. 93+" (12/2018) 92 points James S...

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "Reminding me of a quality St. Joseph, the 2013 Syrah Sawyer Lindquist Vineyard comes from a site located at the southern end of the Edna Valley. Aged 17 months in 40% new French oak, it offers up lots of black raspberries, dried spices, white pepper and saddle leather in a medium-bodied, supple, thoroughly enjoyable and balanced package. It, too, will drink nicely for 4-6 years. (JD)" (08/2016) Wine & Spirits: "There’s a coolness to this wine’s green peppercorn aroma, while the texture is warm and open, with a smooth, ri...

Mulberries, incense, exotic flowers, and spice all leap from the glass of this inky colored Cabernet Sauvignon, and it’s medium to full-bodied, structured and vibrant on the palate. Brought up in 80% new French oak, it has loads of potential but needs 2-4 years of bottle age. 94...

2016 Truquet, St-Émilion

2017 Domaine Bart Marsannay Rouge "Les Echezots"
Top Pick!
Allen Meadows - Burghound: "Firm reduction masks the underlying fruit today. Otherwise there is good punch and lovely detail to the more mineral-inflected flavors that aren't especially complex but they are quite refreshing and the finish is well-balanced. We'll see if it can add more depth but again, this is very pretty and well crafted." (01/2019)

These library wines from Lakespring Winery have immaculate provenance and were purchased directly from the original owner of the property.

90 points Wine Enthusiast: "The Anjou Villages appellation is warm enough to ripen both versions of Cabernet, Franc and Sauvignon. This rich while balanced wine is good proof of that with its ripe black fruits and acidity. It wouldn't be Loire without the smoky, lightly stalky backdrop that will allow the wine to age. Drink from 2020. (RV)" (09/2018) K&L Notes: Established over 50 years ago, the 4th generation of the Denis family now runs this operation. Julien is the winemaker, Stephane in charge of the viticulture and Vincent oversees the administrat...

Classic black and blue fruits, damp earth, violets, and tobacco notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied effort that stays pure, impeccably balanced, and vibrant on the palate. It’s the real deal, and if it was from Napa, it would sell for 3-4 times the price."

93 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: "The rich, tannic 2015 Lirac Baron Louis spent a year in barrel, a year in tank and a year in bottle prior to release. It offers up scents of leather, cedar and vanilla, but it balances out the oak with dark fruit notes of cola, plum and spice.

There is a wonderful element of whimsy and joy at this tiny, family bodega located in Laguardia. The elephant logo, the onsite African art museum, as well as the name (there is no Señor de Lesmos, as it turns out) all speak to the family's joie de vivre and sense of humor.
