What We're Drinking



With the James Bond movie Spectre being released today, no time could be better to drink Bollinger. The most suave spy in the world has been sipping on Bollinger since Moonraker in 1979. While we can’t all drive a fully loaded, customized machine gun having Aston Martin, we certainly can chill down a bottle of Bolli! The 2004 Bollinger "Grande Année" Brut Champagne ($109) is as good as Champagne gets; all barrel fermented and full of masculine, Pinot Noir power and high class elegance. We even have a few bottles of the limited 2009 Bollinger "James Bond 007" Brut Champagne ($195) in stock for the diehard fan of Bond & Champagne!

Greetings all,

Well, we've got rosado on our minds this time of year. Here is a list of  what we have right now, a good balance of shades of pink, varying levels of fruitiness (all dry, though), acidity, and as always, a few fizzy options.

2012 Raventos "La Rosa" Penedes - $19.99

2012 Ameztoi "Rubentis" Rosé Getariako Txakolina - $19.99

2012 Xavier Clua "El Sola d'en Pol" Rosado Terra Alta - $10.99

Also, our first couple en rama sherries have arrived and are likely to go quickly. More on that next week, though, provided we've still got some in stock....

Spanish & Portuguese Wine News: When It Rains It 'Flors'

By: Joe Manekin | K&L Spanish & Portuguese Wine Buyer

Long time, no Sherry! That's what I was thinking to myself as I sipped one of my last bottles of Equipo Navazos Manzanilla en Rama "I Think" recently. Well, when it rains, it flors (this pun's for you, Majeski!). We have a few new faces in the section, not to mention a host of new sherries due to arrive later next week from a bodega that arguably boasts the most diverse and impressive line-up of wines from the region. Of course I'm referring to Valdespino. More on those next week, just keep your eyes peeled.

For now though, in no particular order I have some wines which have recently arrived which may be of interest to some of you.

2012 Ameztoi Getariako Txakolina - $19.99


2008 Domino do Bibei "Lalama" Ribeira Sacra - $29.99


2000 La Rioja Alta "904" Gran Reserva Rioja - $49.99


Un Saludo,

Drink This: Txakoli 

Ever since I was a kid—a displaced New Yorker living in suburban Southern California and fantasizing about "real" pizza, bagels and greasy Chinese food—I've planned my trips around food. So when I learned, while traveling through Barcelona about a decade ago, munching on patatas bravas, pan con tomate and every other kind of montadito placed in front of me, that the food in San Sebastián was supposed to be some of the best in the world, I scrapped my upcoming trip to Valencia and headed north.
