LEVEL (2) MIX

 

2019 BARNETT SANGIACOMO VINEYARD CHARDONNAY

 “The 2019 Chardonnay Sangiacomo Vineyard opens with a gorgeous nose of spice cake, candied ginger, lemon butter and marzipan over a core of apricots, Bosc pears and apple pie. Medium-bodied, the palate bursts with intense citrus and apple flavors plus loads of spicy accents with a racy backbone and satiny texture, finishing long with beautiful savoriness.”
93+ Points
 “The 2019 Sangiacomo Chardonnay is a beautiful bright gold color with powerful aromatics. Passionfruit and kiwi jump from the glass which is matched by spiciness, mainly white pepper. There are layers of honeysuckle and jasmine. Round and rich this is a very luscious wine. The fruit moves to more apricot and pear on the palate while pretty jasmine persists. This is a lush rich wine that can be enjoyed in it’s youth or develop nicely over the next 6-7 years (2026-2027).”

 

CHAMPAGNE DEVAUX AUGUSTA BRUT NV

“Attractive, fresh, spiced biscuits with lemon and orange notes, leading to a savory, fresh and crisp palate with a smooth, easy resolve. Drink now.”
91 Points
“From the same producer who makes Majestic’s Oeil de Perdrix rosé Champagne, this is lovely and light, with tangy lemon rind and green apple flavours. It has a creamy, briochey mid-palate but isn’t as rich as many – although fresh and lively it’s nicely restrained, making it a great aperitif.”
89 Points

2018 FLORIAN MOLLET POUILLY-FUME

“Wonderful aromas of dried flowers to the cooked apple and some lime. Green papaya too. Medium to full body. Fruity and minerally finish. Drink now.”
94 Points
Winery Notes: “Golden green. The nose opens up to notes of wild flowers backed by subtle citrus fruit. Expressive attack on the palate exuding exotic fruit with refreshing exuberance and delicate balance.”

 

2016 KORBIN KAMERON MOON MOUNTAIN DISTRICT CABERNET SAUVIGNON

“The Korbin Kameron Moon Mountain Cabernet Sauvignon 2016 begins with a richly concentrated nose of red currants, gentle spice, light florals, and hints of vanilla. The color is a vibrant purple that showcases the focused, linear palate, highlighting the black currants, muddled blackberries, crushed slate, fresh sage, and forest floor. This wine is bright and fresh on the palate, with focused red and black fruits that lead to a long, concentrated finish. This wine is drinking beautifully now but will age for another decade.”
94 Points

2017 BLACK KITE SOBERANES VINEYARD PINOT NOIR

“Dark aromas of roasted plum, loamy earth, crushed rocks and a hint of shiitake mushroom show on the nose of this bottling. The palate is loaded with earthy flavors of rock and mushroom, set against a backdrop of boysenberry and wild herbs.”
92 Points
“Shimmering magenta. Deep-pitched red and blue fruit aromas pick up hints of vanilla and exotic spices with air. Fleshy and subtly chewy on the palate, offering appealingly sweet black raspberry and boysenberry flavors that become livelier through the midpalate. Closes long and spicy, with a repeating vanilla note and steadily building tannins…”
92 Points
“Our 2017 Soberanes Vineyard Pinot Noir is a deeply expressive wine that opens with beguiling bottle brush and sweet tea aromas that give way to a complex core of black fruit, cassis and clove. The rich, round mouthfeel is met with just enough tannic traction to sustain the compelling fruit intensity throughout the long finish. Enjoy upon release or cellar for up to 4-6 years.” 199 Cases Produced

2017 LA FERME DU MONT CHATEAUNEUF-DU-PAPE VENDANGE

“The 2017 Châteauneuf-du-Pape Vendange has a concentrated, medium to full-bodied style as well as some exotic, sappy herbs, and spring flower aromas and flavors. Leading with more dark fruit, it gains depth and richness with time in the glass and will certainly be an outstanding wine.”
91-93 Points
“Tasted blind. Reductive nose, petillant palate and while the red fruit is very attractive and ripe, the balance is still raw. The purity and persistence of that gorgeous red fruit indicates great quality here, so there should be lots more to come.”
