K&L Notes

Maybe the single best example of just how great the value side of 2005 Bordeaux really is. Phenomenal wine. We sold out quickly the last three times we go this in, so don't dawdle. K&L's Notes: From the barrel, toasty oak aromas and red fruit flavors. Elegant. Easy drinker. Value? 1/2 * The wine is even better now with some age on it. I love this property for their very fruit forward, silky wines. A delicious wine to enjoy over the next five years. Decant. (Clyde Beffa, K&L Bordeaux buyer) Three stars San Francisco Chronicle in their review, "Red Bordeaux $50 or Less": "A bright nose of black fruit with hints of smoke and black pepper is uplifted with floral, minty notes. The elegant, lush palate follows through with fruit that is balanced with perfect acidity and velvety tannins. Small amounts of Cabernet Franc and Petit Verdot are blended with Merlot and Cabernet Sauvignon. Perfect to enjoy now, but has enough stuff to age nicely. Unbelievable value." (3/28/2008)

    From the commune of Cussac-Fort Medoc just south of St. Julien comes one of my favorite value wines of the 2005 vintage, even better now with another two years in the bottle. On the nose, notes of cracked pepper and smoke. On the palate, lively acidity, juicy black currant fruit, and firm tannins. A serious wine even at this price, it will throw a little sediment. Decant for one hour and enjoy. Will continue to improve, drink over the next 3 to 5 years.
