Drew Kline

Manager, Wine & Sake Associate, Premium Wine & Spirits

Obtaining a degree in Hospitality & Restaurant Management led Drew to the wine industry and that employment, in turn, played a role in him obtaining his second degree in International Business & World Trade. Spending a week touring the wineries of the Tuscan countryside was an inspirational experience for Drew and authored a fervent new chapter in his wine career. Pairing Champagne with melons is one of Drew’s favorite combinations. Outside of work, Drew enjoys playing guitar, craft beer, and supporting the Buffalo Sabres.

    Liastos Moraitis

    2006 / 500 ml. | Item#31250

    RP8888 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 21st Dec 2009
    The 2006 MONEMVASIA LIASTOS was sun dried for 15 days and then aged in oak. Relatively light, it is laced with apricot and peach nuances, not particularly syrupy, and not as rich in the palate as the nose promises. It is very tasty, but it does thin fast and the fruit acquires a dried apricot nuance with air and warmth. The intense aromatics were its best feature. Drink now–2015.

    Segura Viudas Brut Reserva

    NV / 750 ml. | Item#11732

    WS8888 pts. - Wine & Spirits - December 1, 1994
    The Brut Reserva is lighter in style, and less complex than the Aria Estate Brut, though it is still a beautifully balanced, clean sparkler that will serve well at any festivities. Light and crisp, with a full nutty flavor. Well-blended.
    WE8888 pts. - Wine Enthusiast - 4/1/1998
    Pale straw. Medium-bodied. Moderately extracted. Toasty aromas lead a creamy palate with citrus flavors and a full mouthfeel.
    SP8686 pts. - Wine Spectator - Jul 31, 1996
    Tastes flavorful and complex, is rich in texture and long on the finish. Has powerful fruit and good balance.
    BD8585 pts. - Beverage Dynamics - Mar/Apr 2005
    Softened yellow tones filled with persistent streams of fine bubbles; scents of sweet bananas, vanilla, and toasted plantains followed by similar flavors with citrus notes beaming through the center of this straightforward refreshing sparkler.
    RP8585 pts. - Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate - 1st May 2011
    Segura Viudas’ entry level Cava, the Non-Vintage Brut Reserva offers up a pleasant perfume of yeast notes, biscuit, and green apple. It is a straightforward, lively, slightly off-dry bubbly that is a good value for drinking over the next 12–18 months.
