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.

Wine of the Week: 2005 Ch. La Garde

K&L Hollywood's Steve Greer, fresh back from the 2010 Bordeaux En Primeur tastings and excited for this weekend's Bordeaux tastings submitted the 2005 Ch. La Garde from Pessac-Léognan ($24.99) as this week's Wine of the Week. Here's what he had to say:

Since it seems like it is "Bordeaux Week" at K&L with articles on the 2010 UGC tastings, staff tastings on new arrivals and a public tasting this Saturday I thought the Wine of the Week should be a stand-out from yesterday's staff tasting at the Hollywood store. The 2005 La Garde from the Pessac was one of the stand-outs for our Hollywood staff.

It has a beautiful nose of smoke, perfume, floral, spice, cedar and blackberry. The heady black fruit and incense continues on the palate with a long, spicy and cedary finish. The tannins are still evident, of course, but the wine isn't overly astringent.

A beautiful wine for only $24.99.
