    94 point Pinot Noir from Oregon

    Last updated 9 days ago

    I think this is worthy of both the Fine Wine list and the regular email offer list.  Elk Cove makes really widely appealing Pinot Noir in Oregon.  Their style tends toward the fuller, bolder end of the spectrum, but it depends a lot on the site.  A 1990 Elk Cove Reserve a couple of years back is still one of my benchmarks for New World Pinot Noir, so I believe that their wines have some longevity.  They're certainly delicious on release, though, as evidenced by such high praise from the critics on this one.  We've got a really big score with a mysteriously short note, and an amazing sounding note with a slightly lower, but still high, score, so I'll show you both.

    From the critics:

    "Brilliant ruby-red. Intense blackberry, cherry and sandalwood aromas are sharpened by peppery spices and a hint of orange peel. Juicy and broad in the mouth, offering sweet red and dark berry flavors that show liqueur-like power and no rough edges. The fruit-dominated finish features a sexy Asian spice quality and silky, well-knit tannins that come on late."

    Charity wine tasting event in Waltham & Natick!

    Dear Loyal D&L Customers,


    As many of you know, D&L Liquors has been family owned and operated since 1933. As a family business, we are not just supporters of the community, but a part of it as well. That's why when we learn about members of our community who have faced tragedy and are trying to raise awareness in the face of it - like the Moody family - we want to do what we can to help.


    Please take a moment to learn about the CJ Moody Fund and the heartbreaking, but also inspiring story of the Moody Family who lost their courageous little boy in 2009 to a variety of congenital anomalies.


    Another reason we wanted to help raise awareness about this organization is the wonderful cause for which it benefits directly. "Early Intervention is a statewide, integrated, developmental service for families of children between birth and three years of age. It provides family centered services that assist in the developmental progress of eligible children" and this could be any child who is struggling to meet developmental milestones or is diagnosed with a specific developmental condition.

    To learn more click here CJ MOODY FUND WEBSITE


    D&L will be hosting a special multi-store charity wine tasting on August 22nd from 4-8pm. Please visit our Natick Center location or either of our Waltham locations to try and buy a selection of wine from which 20% of the sales will be donated to the Moody Fund.

    Cheers,


    Your Friends at D&L Liquors

    Summer Selections Wine Tasting AUG. 16

    Last updated 16 days ago

    It's about time that we have another bigger-than-usual wine tasting.  There's plenty of warm weather left in the season, and we've been getting a bunch of fun new wines in recently that we're eager to have you try.  With both of these things in mind, I'm putting together a lineup of 10 of our new favorites for enjoying right now.  There will be plenty of variety, from light to bold and from daily drinkers to something a little nicer for whenever that strikes your fancy.
     
    Here's a little preview of what I'll be pouring:
     
    2010 Cade Napa Cabernet Sauvignon 
    1999 Bagordi Rioja Reserva
    2013 Pepière Clos des Briords Muscadet (fantastic single vineyard Muscadet) 
    Domaine Guillot Broux Rosé (sparkling Gamay from Burgundy)
     
    With those gems plus 6 other treats, I'm sure there will be something for everyone to enjoy.
     
    Here are the details:
     
    next Saturday, August 16th
    119 River St, Waltham
    4-7pm
     
    I hope you'll join us so I don't have to try to drink all of these wines myself!

    D&L DEAL: 27% off a 90 point Cab

    Last updated 23 days ago

    These Chilean Cabernet Sauvignons are really taking off, and with good reason.  There are plenty of high quality examples for very reasonable prices, and the style generally appeals to the California Cab crowd, with the Chilean versions sometimes having a bit more restraint.

    Here's one that we bought on a temporary deal and looked plenty good to offer to you all.  The deal we took advantage of was only good for one day, so once this inventory is gone, so is the price.  We've got a lot of customers who like this style of wine, so it might not stick around for long.

    Here's the review:

    "Vivid ruby. Highly fragrant scents of redcurrant, dried cherry, pipe tobacco and candied rose. Lively and precise on the palate, offering appealingly sweet red fruit flavors and a touch of cracked pepper. Finishes tight and nervy, with very good clarity and lingering spice and bitter chocolate notes." 

    90 points
