Happy Wednesday, Erev Rosh Hashanah, and (to the Bay Area folks) summer. Last week felt good - busy in the shop and outside of work eating and drinking- a fun meal out at Aziza (including an amazing older magnum of Miguel Merino Gran Reserva - damn that was good), and some quality time with David "barrel o' whisk(e)y " Driscoll and Jason Marwedel, who made his famous leg of lamb paired with some OLD Bordeaux - hey, this is K&L and we do occasionally drink Bordeaux.
Alright, short and to the point this week:
Why don't you drink more of it? If you haven't done so in a while, please browse our section, ask one of us about it (the staff loves this stuff nearly as much as I do), and start learning more about what are arguably the best values in the wine world. Here are two "brown sherry" picks. Fortified and intense, but actually quite dry. I would drink these anytime, but especially love them as digestifs after a meal.
