What We're Drinking




We have a little cult here at K&L of steak and claret on Friday nights. If you drop by the store near closing, you will no doubt over hear many of us discussing cuts of beef, potato preperations and the Bordeaux to pair with the beef. One of our favorites for current drinking is the 1999 Cantemerle, Haut-Médoc ($49.99) which is drinking perfectly at 16 years old. The composition is 55% Cabernet Sauvignon, 35% Merlot, 8% Petite Verdot and 2% Cabernet Franc. This is a plummy wine from the high percentage of Merlot and I loved the minty focus on the back end. This is long finishing stuff, and has the good acid on the back cut the richness of a big steak. What a treat!

Getting to Know: Christie Cartwright

What’s your position at K&L and how long have you been with the company?

I am the domestic liaison for K&L Hollywood. I was hired in the Fall of 2009. I’ve been with K&L for a year now, and I love it!

What did you do before you started working here?

Before I joined K&L, I was working in San Luis Obispo County at a variety of wineries and wine shops, such as Four Vines, Tolosa and 15 degrees. I loved the area so much after finishing at Cal Poly I wanted to make a go for it and stay as long as possible…which ended up being two-and-a-half-years before it became clear to me it was a place for students, the independently wealthy or small business owners.
