What We're Drinking

 

 

 

In December, we drink Champagne at closing at K&L- and we prefer to drink it out of magnum when possible. The highlight this year was the Ariston Aspasie Blanc de Blancs Brut Champagne (1.5L) magnum ($74.99) that we had on Christmas eve. This single vineyard beauty comes from the Gouttes d’Or, a very steep east facing parcel in the little village of Brouillet. It was creamy, delicate and perfectly refreshing! We all say to cheers to you, and hope your holiday is filled with fun and friends!

Clyde's Top 10 Holiday Gift Picks

It's that top 10 time of year! We've got a handful on deck, but with just 10 shopping days before Christmas (sorry, I had to say it), I thought we'd start off with our fearless leader Clyde's Top 10 Holiday Gift Picks. There's something on here for every budget and every wine lover.

10)  2009 Kalinda Rheingau Riesling Qba* ($10.99) An everyday house Riesling that hits that sweet spot price-wise. A touch dryer than a halbtrocken, it still carries weight, texture and a juicy core of fruit, plus soft minerality. A delicious holiday sipp

K&L Holiday Gift Guide, Part 2

Here's the second half of K&L's Holiday Gift Guide. If you missed part one earlier this week, you can check it out here. And, as always, if you're looking for something in particular, or have a challenging person to shop for, you can live chat, call or dry by any of our stores for shopping help. We're here to make the season brighter (and tastier).

Macallan 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky ($119.99) Macallan 18 year is a modern classic. Often held up as the standard-bearer for Sherry cask single malt, the Macallan has become ubiquitous with exceptionalism in whisky. Non-chillfiltered and bottled at 46% exclusively from the 1992 vintage and earlier, you’ll never find the flagship Macallan 18 year old Single Malt at a better price.

K&L Holiday Gift Guide, Part 1

The holiday season is amping up, which means you're probably pouring over your gift list trying to figure out how to accomplish all of your seasonal shopping with the least amount of stress. Well, we're here to help, because we hate stress! We've asked  our staff to suggest their favorite wines and wine-related gifts (you might recognize a few from the newsletter) that you can buy now with just a couple clicks. Have a particularly difficult person to shop for? Let us know! And Happy Holidays!

Ginza Shizuku “Divine Dropletts” Junmai Daiginjo Sake ($64.99) Whether it’s a gift for a sake enthusiast or a gluten-free friend, this is as elegant and rare as it gets for imported sake. Made inside an igloo in Hokkaido, in Japan’s extreme north, where below-freezing temperatures prevent unwanted bacteria from surviving, ensuring a very pure sake. The fermented sake is separated from the fermenting rice lees by putting it into canvas bags. Overnight the clearest, purest sake drips out, making this one of the most labor intensive sakes in existence.

2004 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon ($84.99) Hands down my favorite Napa Valley Cab producer, I have given this as a gift on numerous occasions. The fruit is crushed blackberries and cassis. There are soft tannins and gentle acidity in the glass, plus baking spices with a touch of rosemary on the nose. The ’04 is drinking well now after being decanted and allowed to unwind, but it also has enough structure to age for several more years.
