LEVEL (1) MIX

2019 RAPAURA SPRINGS RESERVE MARLBOROUGH SAUVIGNON BLANC  

Pungently aromatic sauvignon blanc with impressively intense passion fruit, red capsicum and nectarine flavours. A smooth-textured wine that practically defines Marlborough sauvignon blanc. Deliciously drinkable. Great value.”

2016 DOMAINE JOLLY ET FILS PETIT CHABLIS

The 2016 Petit Chablis has a pretty bouquet with hints of praline complementing the citrus fruit, light smoky aromas emerging with further aeration. The palate is well balanced with a fine line of acidity, quite powerful on the backpalate with a hint of mango and passion fruit towards the finish...”

2019 VISTA ATLAS PEAK RESERVE CHARDONNAY

The 2019 Vista Atlas Peak Reserve Chardonnay begins with a fascinating nose that includes elegant honeysuckle, bright passionfruit, candied lemon, hints of vanilla bean, and white flowers. It smoothly transitions to a rich, supple mouthfeel that’s fleshy on the palate, combining honey-dipped Asian pears, and quince, with just enough bright acidity and tropical fruit character to keep it lively and fresh.”

2018 FRISSON TOUCHER VINEYARD PROPRIETARY

“The Frisson Proprietary Red Toucher Vineyard 2018 begins with sweet-spice aromas of cinnamon and cloves, leading into vanilla, cherry cola, cassis, black plums, and a savory tapenade. The wine is refreshingly balanced between the fruit and spice components on the palate, leading to a great complexity of flavors that continue to evolve until the finish. This wine is ready to drink now but will display more developed flavors and aromas after a few years.”

2018 SARACINA OLD SOUL MENDOCINO COUNTY PROPRIETARY RED  

Based on Malbec, Zinfandel, and Petite Sirah, the 2018 Old Soul Red By Saracina is another outstanding, sexy red from winemaker Alex MacGregor. Medium to full-bodied, it has lots of blue fruits, notes of peppery herbs and violets, and a balanced, delicious style. Enjoy bottles over the coming 2-4 years or so.”
91 Points
Tones of dark chocolate and rich black fruit give an intriguing personality to this full-bodied, moderately tannic wine. Cocoa notes melt on the palate as the flavors expand through a lingering finish.”
