What We're Drinking

2000 Labégorce, Margaux $39.99

A great value in Bordeaux! This bottle is mature enough to drink now, but has time in hand if you want to keep it in the cellar for the future. We love it for its laid back elegance and classic balance. A must try for your next nice steak dinner.

Like Dessert Wine for Chocolate…

Enjoy these wines with desserts, chocolates, cheeses or your sweetie! 2004 Bodegas Silvano Garcia Monastrell Dulc, Jumilla (500ml) ($21.99) 93 points Robert Parker: “It is produced from 50-year old Mourvedre, vinified, then fortified with alcohol ... The superbly concentrated 2004 displays blue fruits, violet, and camphor aromas, followed by a full-bodied, enormously-endowed palate with more residual sugar than its taste reveals.” 2004 Bodegas Silvano Garcia Moscatel, Jumilla (500ml) ($21.99) 92 points Robert Parker: “Silvano Garcia fashions some intoxicating, heady, sweet reds, with the Moscatel resembling a French Beaumes de Venise. With loads of exotic tropical fruits intermixed with apricots, this honeyed sweetie possesses a light gold color as well as plenty of alcohol and glycerin.” 2003 Candela Bellum, El Remate, Valencia (500ml) ($29.99) 93 points Robert Parker: “…an Amarone-styled offering produced from late harvested Monastrell. It possesses a dense ruby/purple color, a fig and raisin-like character in its perfume of blackberries, chocolate, and scorched earth, moderate sweetness, and wonderful purity as well as intensity ... one of the top discoveries of all my tastings.” 2004 Vinos Piñol Mistela Blanca, Terra Alta (500ml) ($29.99) 95 points Robert Parker: “The 2004 Mistela Blanca is a rich, sweet elixir made from White Grenache. Its amber color is followed by copious quantities of honeysuckle, creme brulee, coffee, licorice, and cherry scents in its overpowering yet complex aromatics.” 2004 Vinos Piñol Mistela Red, Terra Alta (500ml) ($29.99) 92 points Stephen Tanzer: “(90% garnacha and 10% syrah) Bright dark ruby. Pungent, wild aromas of dark cherry liqueur, smoked bacon, truffle and maple syrup. Supersweet and highly concentrated but with a surprising light touch for such a powerful, velvety drink.” Happy Valentine’s Day! —Anne Pickett, anne@klwines.com —Anne Pickett
