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!

Wine with a Cause: JT Snow's THIRST Napa Cabernet Sauvignon

On Saturday May 26th, K&L Redwood City had the pleasure of hosting a tasting of the 2008 Thirst Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Former SF Giant J.T. Snow and winemaker Katie Hamilton Shaffer were on hand to explain the charity that this wine supports and all the facts about the wine.

2008 Thirst Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon ($44.99) K&L is proud to carry "Thirst", a new line from Toolbox Wine Co. A portion of proceeds of sales of the 2008 "Thirst" Napa Cabernet will be donated to the Jack and J.T. Snow Fund to support Wolfram Syndrome research at Washington University in St. Louis. Composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 9 % Petit Verdot, 2 % Petit Sirah, and 1 % Zinfandel, this rich, juicy Cabernet offers aromas of ripe blackberry and plum, with hints of toasty vanilla, dark chocolate and baking spices. On the palate, the wine is medium bodied with layers of fruit and spice framed by fine tannins and and lifted acidity. "For 13 years I gave back to baseball," remarks former SF Giants first baseman J.T. Snow, "today I am giving back beyond the field. In 2010 my niece Raquel was diagnosed with a rare disease - Wolfram syndrome...Please join us by raising a glass, thank you for your support."
