If You Love SAUVIGNON BLANC…

…we have the Chardonnay for you!
For the white wine aficionado that can appreciate a bright Chablis-style, the “White Hill” Chardonnay from Liquid Farm will not disappoint.
With a more mineral driven profile, the wine was given its name in honor of the chalky white hills of Chablis and diatomaceous earth of Sta. Rita Hills, where these grapes are sourced.
To be honest, it’s been quite a while since Marcus had the pleasure to tasting such a “racy, lively, spectacular, truly phenomonal” wine.  Its balanced acidity makes it an excellent pairing for your summer favorites, from patio fare to exotic spicy dishes.
Normally available exclusively through the winery’s mailing list, we are proud to offer it to our customers.  And at just $35.95, the price can’t be beat.

2018 Russian River SAUVIGNON BLANC
SPECIAL PRICE $35.95
95pts and AWARD OF EXCELLENCE
Very few Sauvignon Blancs have the complex array of aromatics and unique flavors offered up by this stellar super-SAUV.  Scents of salted butterscotch, peach blossom, just-mowed grass and pineapple fill the air. Developed flavors of jasmine-soaked pears and honeyed tangerine are mesmerizing – and the acidity pulls it all together.
2018 PINOT NOIR
SPECIAL PRICE $51.95
 
Russian River
Warmly opulent and sophisticated, this is an intense, inviting Pinot. It’s packed with ripe cherry, strawberry fruit leather, brambleberry and blueberry. This fruit expression is heightened by anise, earthy notes, well-integrated toasty oak, and a whisper of violets and white flower blossoms.
Sonoma Coast
The exotic aroma shows off spicy notes of cardamom, tamarind, allspice and cinnamon and expands into mouthwatering candied red cherries and berry fruits — red raspberries, wild strawberries, ripe boysenberries and juicy blackberries. Cocoa nibs, cola, white chocolate, candied violets, crème brûlée, caramel and just a hint of blood orange add layers of complexity.
