Vintage: Deep Roots, and the Passage of Time

We love to import fine, rare and vintage bottles of wine from Old Europe in to the United States. An extremely important task for so many, sure indeed!

Old vines have deep roots, the more they work down the ground, the wider the range of flavors and organoleptic complexity ultimately espressed in the fruit. These old vines have also learned with time to prioritize the stream of nutrients from the deeply grounded roots, across the plant and right to the fruit, in order to promote the maturation of the fewer grapes, which release this special juice of more concentrated flavors, when much less energy is dedicated by these expert vines to growing leaves and greenage shields, in their late lives.

Just as much, as the finest wine that is aged in barrels for later enjoyment, in say twenty, or fourty, or even 100+ years after making it - that wine which changes in ways that when you taste it, you are looking straight down and deep on those twenty, fourty or 100+ years, transported back in time and history in terms of aromas and flavors and sensations.

Here's a gallery with links, to just a few examples of our vintage imports, in consignment at and auctioned online by K&L Wine Merchants in San Francisco, California.

And here's another photo gallery with some vintage Original Wood Cases (OWC) that we have currently in the store.
