K&L Notes

One of Clyde's sentimental favorites, and now recently a darling of the K&L staff since 1996 vintage. Always a fine value. The 2009 vintage is much more modern in style than fans of older vintages from Lanessan, packed with lots of fresh fruit, spice and soft tannins.

    Wow, if you've enjoyed past vintages of Lanessan, like the 96, 99, and 01, you're in for a real treat here. "Old School" in style, Lanessan historically leans toward the earthy/woodsy/herbal side of the spectrum, and improves with age, but in 2009 there's so much ripe, fleshy fruit that it's appealing even now. It exhibits ripe black fruit and plum aromas and flavors, with floral and earth spice accents. A dense core of fruit is framed by firmly structured tannins and balanced acidity. The grippy finish lingers with notes of toasty cedar and baking spices, with a delicate hint of vanilla. Lay away 5-7 years to enjoy for the ensuing 10-15.
