Bruno Michel "Blanche" Brut Champagne $34.99One of our best non-vintage Champagnes, this organically grown blend of half each Chardonnay and Meunier comes entirely from Bruno Michel's estate. It has been aged for six years on the lees and shows wonderful natural toasty quality as well as incredible vibrance! This was the big hit of our most recent staff Champagne tasting and we think you will love it too.

SF Shop-A-Holics Take Note!

San Franciscans are a kooky bunch. A free thinking, free wheeling crowd. Diverse, unpredictable and oftentimes just plain goofy. Well, the largely anarchical San Franciscans have reached a consensus on one thing: According to the real reviews by real residents on yelp.com, K&L Wine Merchants is the Top Shopping Destination in the City! (that’s top shopping, period…not just for wine) Read K&L reviews on yelp.com.

Jim C’s View Down Under

2005 Isabel Estate Sauvignon Blanc Marlborough New Zealand ($15.99) Mike and Robyn Tiller supplied much of their fruit to wineries such as Cloudy Bay. In 1994 they produced their first Isabel Estate wine. The nose has a lovely powdery note with gooseberry, passion fruit, pineapple and lime that leap from the glass. The small percent of fruit that is barrel fermented with wild yeast adds nice mid-palate richness and texture. The finish is exceptionally long and multi-layered with some mineral notes as well. 2004 Thorn Clarke “Shotfire Ridge” Barossa Cuvee Barossa Valley South Australia ($15.99) This is one heck of a wine for the money! It won the gold at the Barossa Wine Show, Best Wine of Show at Adelaide and Top of Class at The National Wine Show. It’s a beautiful blend of all five Bordeaux grapes that offers a bouquet of crème de cassis, black fruits, earth, chocolate and a hint of licorice. Balanced with good acidity, the middle palate shows a creamy texture and there a long fine finish. 2003 Craneford “John Zilm” Shiraz Barossa Valley South Australia ($29.99) 90-93 points Robert Parker. The wine has a nose of blue and blackberry fruits, earth and dark chocolate. Shows fine balancing acidity with some notes of black pepper and roasted grain. I tasted with winemaker John Zilm this past January, and I can tell you he has some more great wines to come. The 2004s will be coming soon with some great values, and the 2005s out of barrel were showing tremendous promise. —Jimmy C
