K&L Notes

Native yeasts, neutral barrels, no additives, and hands-on, small fermentations—that's the Donkey & Goat way, at this boutique urban outfit located in Berkeley, right across the Bay from K&L San Francisco. A blend of Grenache, Syrah, Mourvèdre, Counoise and Cinsault, this wine is inspired by the blends of Châteuneuf-du-Pape—with the aim of being wonderfully drinkable early but also having potential to age. The 2014 is a lovely ruby red color in the glass. The wine slowly unfurls and displays a beautiful nose of young red cherries, white pepper, beef blood and notes of dried herbs. The palate is a delightfully balanced mix of red fruits, tomatoes, spice and earth notes all nicely framed by racy acidity and soft tannins. This is the quintessential food wine and could be paired with lamb, pork, veal or grilled eggplant. It is very elegant and delicate, with a nose and complexity that bring all components together in a very enjoyable package. Serve this wine with the slightest chill, at or a bit below cellar temperature.
