Saber Madness at K&L!

We have been chopping off the tops of Champagne bottles as fast as we can drink them- who needs a stopper when you are ready to commit to finishing the bottle! One of our favorites was this magnum ($84.99) of Franck Bonville Brut Rosé that Mellyn expertly decapitated on Christmas Eve. It also comes in regular 750ml ($39.99) and half bottles ($21.99). Olivier Bonville adds 8% Pinot Noir Rouge from Ambonnay superstar Paul Dethune to his top class assembelage of grand cru, estate Chardonnay to create this fabulous rose. This is one of the most elegant, bright, refreshing rose Champagnes that we carry, yet it does not lack red cherry Pinot Noir authority. We can’t get enough- bring another to the block!

K&L Holiday Gift Guide, Part 2

Here's the second half of K&L's Holiday Gift Guide. If you missed part one earlier this week, you can check it out here. And, as always, if you're looking for something in particular, or have a challenging person to shop for, you can live chat, call or dry by any of our stores for shopping help. We're here to make the season brighter (and tastier).

Macallan 18 Year Old Single Malt Whisky ($119.99) Macallan 18 year is a modern classic. Often held up as the standard-bearer for Sherry cask single malt, the Macallan has become ubiquitous with exceptionalism in whisky. Non-chillfiltered and bottled at 46% exclusively from the 1992 vintage and earlier, you’ll never find the flagship Macallan 18 year old Single Malt at a better price.

K&L Holiday Gift Guide, Part 1

The holiday season is amping up, which means you're probably pouring over your gift list trying to figure out how to accomplish all of your seasonal shopping with the least amount of stress. Well, we're here to help, because we hate stress! We've asked  our staff to suggest their favorite wines and wine-related gifts (you might recognize a few from the newsletter) that you can buy now with just a couple clicks. Have a particularly difficult person to shop for? Let us know! And Happy Holidays!

Ginza Shizuku “Divine Dropletts” Junmai Daiginjo Sake ($64.99) Whether it’s a gift for a sake enthusiast or a gluten-free friend, this is as elegant and rare as it gets for imported sake. Made inside an igloo in Hokkaido, in Japan’s extreme north, where below-freezing temperatures prevent unwanted bacteria from surviving, ensuring a very pure sake. The fermented sake is separated from the fermenting rice lees by putting it into canvas bags. Overnight the clearest, purest sake drips out, making this one of the most labor intensive sakes in existence.

2004 Dunn Howell Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon ($84.99) Hands down my favorite Napa Valley Cab producer, I have given this as a gift on numerous occasions. The fruit is crushed blackberries and cassis. There are soft tannins and gentle acidity in the glass, plus baking spices with a touch of rosemary on the nose. The ’04 is drinking well now after being decanted and allowed to unwind, but it also has enough structure to age for several more years.
