We'd love to tell you all about the storied estate from which we sourced this superb, classic example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, but we can't. For decades now, our Kalinda private label has been providing K&L customers with awesome wines at a fraction of what they'd normally pay under the producers' mainstay labels. That being said, no producer wants their wines on the market for less than what they'd usually sell for, so the trade-off is anonymity. While we have to remain quiet about the source of this beauty, we can tell you that wine from this prestigious producer sells elsewhere under the winery label at a much higher premium. Our first Kalinda Cabernet was from 1982 vintage-a mere 36 years ago.

We made our first Kalinda Cabernet in 1984 - the 1982 vintage from Boeger winery. Now on our 34th rendition, we've had the fortune to team up with some of the greats in California winemaking over the years. This time the Lot 2 Cabernet is from the Napa Valley and it is so sweet and delicious. Toasty oak nuances and red fruit flavors. Lingering on the palate. Not a tannic blockbuster but more of a Margaux style red. Decant and enjoy with your lamb chop dinner.

During my many years as a wine merchant, one of my top priorities has been making sure my clients have access to a high quality, value-driven Cabernet Sauvignon; preferably from Napa Valley. The Lot #2 bottling from Kalinda is just that wine. It possesses the perfect combination of red and black fruit with the proper amount of structure and grip. I reviewed this wine against several more expensive alternatives. Time and again I came back to the Lot # 2 as my go-to wine. It embodies precisely what you seek when the situation calls for a casual mid-week red or if you’re entertaining a group. Leave your Dunn’s and Montalena’s in the cellar for another year. Open a bottle of Kalinda Lot # 2 instead. You’ll be glad you did.
