What We're Drinking

 

One of the most serious English Sparkling producers. This historic estate has been in the Goring family since 1743. The tiny 16-acre vineyard is close-planted on a steep south-facing chalk escarpment described as 'similar to the Côte des Blancs' in Champagne. The fruit is picked very selectively with quality being the absolute focus. The grapes are pressed gently using a traditional Coquard press. After three years on the lees this wine, composed of 45% Pinot Noir, 33% Chardonnay & 22% Pinot Meunier, is hand disgorged and balanced with a minimal dosage of just 4g/L. It has a fine counterbalance between toasty richness and power from the wines élevage in Burgundian French Oak barrels, with racy acidity, tension and a focused chalky minerality.

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."
