Critical Acclaim

93 Vinous

The Walter Hansel 2018 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane Vineyard is another stellar wine in this lineup. Here, too, I very much like the wine's energy and nuance. Ripe red/purplish fruit, blood orange and floral notes are wonderfully vivid. Medium in body and finely cut, the Cahill Lane is so enticing. In 2018, the Cahill Lane has an extra kick of citrus-infused acidity that gives cut and a closing burst of energy that is impossible to miss.

93 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Medium ruby-purple, the 2018 Pinot Noir Cahill Lane is scented by smoked cranberries, tar, and tobacco with nuances of citrus peel and potpourri. The light-bodied palate is silky, layered, and seriously styled with a gentle grip, great freshness and long finish.

A wine list from Flask published in the 1970sA wine list from Flask published in the early 1970s


Driving down Ventura Blvd in Studio City in the 1960’s has something in common with today, Flask Fine Wine & Whisky- Flask first opened its doors to the public in 1962. Decades later and it still remains a respected fixture in the Los Angeles community. 

We work directly with the wineries, distilleries and breweries to maintain a personal relationship with the creators of some of our favorite products.

We want to know their stories and how they produce bottles that fit into our unique collection. We make a point to keep our selection stocked with a wide variety, offering your classic Napa icons to your natural & organic wines.

We like to think of our whiskey and spirit section as more of a library where the rarest of bottles can be found.

We look forward to helping you find your next favorite bottle!
