Thoughts on Karl Lawrence ?

Post  Jan.Brekke on Thu Jan 22, 2009 2:25 am

After really enjoying their '02 Morisoli Cab I signed up for the mailing list. Recently notified that I can order a few bottles of their standard Cab. I'm not one to chase the Cali cult cabs, but this seems like one of the better quality reasonably priced Cab makers out there. I'll probably order my allotment and wait to hear about the single vyd Cabs down the road. Any strong opinions out there about this label ?

I have been a fan of theirs since the 99 vintage. They have always treated me well, put out a good product and have been fair on pricing. What more can I ask for?

My thoughts on KL?

I think the are one of the singularly best made wines coming out of Napa for the money today.
I hooked in late and am backfilling whenever I can.
The 2003 DR Crane was nutty good. It made me a believer......

Yes, an '03. Very Happy

Concentrated dark color. This is a pure, clean and wonderful Cabernet that defies the reputation of the vintage. Plush and lush explosive black and red fruits of currant, blackberry and black cherry. Great creme de casis & Kirsch with just the slightest amount of chocolate mousse and a touch of cola. Great unobtrusive tannins that are finely weaved and fully evolved. This is an extremely balanced and deftly structured Cabernet. What a phenomenal effort from KL

I haven't had any in close to ten years, but I'm glad to hear that very little has changed. Well made, fairly restrained wines at a fair price.

Nuff said.
I see your Kirsch and raise you creme de cassis - this wine must rule SO hard!

Very helpful comments. Definitely confirms my impression based on my experience with the '02 Morisoli. Not sure how long it takes to move up the list to the single vyds, but I suspect I'll drop off a Cali Pinot list in order to make room for KL.

And since I don't believe that KL is any good, I will wait to get to your house to try it. Wink

You'll be lucky to get me to open one of these now that Kirsch is involved.

Kirsch
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
(Redirected from Kirschwasser)
Jump to: navigation, search

Kirschwasser, produced in Germany and bottled at 40% ABV.For other uses, see Kirsch (disambiguation).
This article is about an alcoholic beverage. For the Xenosaga character, see Minor characters in Xenosaga.
Kirschwasser (pronounced /KIRSH-VAHS-ər/, German for “cherry water”) is a clear, colorless fruit brandy traditionally made from double distillation of morellos, a dark-colored cultivar of the sour cherry. However, the beverage is now being made from other kinds of cherries as well.

The cherries are fermented complete (i.e., along with their stones).[1]

Kirschwasser is commonly called Kirsch in English-speaking countries

Serving
Unlike cherry liqueurs and so-called “cherry brandies,” Kirschwasser is not sweet. The best Kirschwassers have a highly refined taste with subtle flavors of cherry and a slight bitter-almond taste that is derived from the stones. Kirschwasser is used in many mixed drinks, such as the Lady Finger, Florida Cocktail, and Black Forest.

Kirschwasser is usually drunk neat. Traditionally, it is served cold in a very small glass and is taken as an apéritif. However, people in the German-speaking region where Kirschwasser originated usually serve it after dinner.

High-quality Kirschwasser is often served at room temperature and is warmed by the hands, as with wine brandy.
