K&L Notes

We have happily supported Neyers Vineyards for years. It is a winery that has a broad and eclectic range of wines, which I love, as anyone who works in a wine shop would—because variety is the spice of life! They are always balanced, pure, expressive and classic. But when I stopped to think about their range, it made no sense to me until I learned that Bruce Neyers worked for Kermit Lynch—one of the most historically important boutique French wine importers—for years. He’s traveled across France, visiting all the various regions, drinking wine and talking with the some of the most famous winemakers in that country. That has to be inspiring. So, if you had no legal varietal restrictions (as they do in France) and you had access to all of the great California fruit that Neyers does, you too would make the great variety of the wines that they make.

    Carignane can be one of my favorite things to drink IF made properly...which can be hard to come by. There is so much mass-produced plonk out there that when I run into a wine that has freshness and purity, I get very excited about it. Coming from one of the oldest vineyards in CA, this Carignane is so vibrant and alive, full of wild raspberries and exotic spice on the nose. There is no mistaking the core power of old vine fruit, pure wild cherry, fresh strawberries macerated in clove and pepper, bouncy acidity that gives lift to the wine, making it perfect for anything off the grill. An extremely well done version of an often neglected grape.

    This wine pops. It is intensely colored and the fruit and spice aromatics leap out of the glass. On the palate it has lots of sappy red fruits, and berry flavors that are heavily spiced with herbal spice and pepper. This is a summertime in the back yard grilling and BBQing kind of wine. Or if you cannot do that, at least it will put you in that head space.
