Wine Tasting 9/21

Posted in Hollywood Vine Events, Uncategorized by hvine on September 17, 2010 No Comments yet

The last tasting of the summer will feature 4 wineries from California and Washington; these wines are all a great value that are made by an outstanding team of winemakers, from fruit of the highest acclaimed vineyards, representing their unique character and intensity on every sip.

The owners of Napa’s legendary Screaming Eagle vineyard, the priciest and dearest of the cult cabernet sauvignons from Napa Valley, recently launched 101 Wine Company , their newest venture: Jonata, a fabulous vineyard north of Santa Barbara in the Santa Ynez Valley; with a fabulous team of winemakers led by Matt Deiss. The Paring wines are made from the younger vines that aren’t quite ready for the Jonata label. Crafted from premium grapes in the heart of Washington, 14 Hands is a special find. Named after the wild horses that once made their home on the land upon which 14 Hands grapes are grown, the wine retains the individual spirit of its namesake. Pali Wine Co. founded in 2005 and located in Santa Barbara makes delicious Pinots from designated California and Oregon AVAs. Kenneth Juhasz is the award wining Winemaker. It was a match born out of fire. just 25 years ago a pair of visionaries transformed a piece of land tucked away in a peaceful valley in the Dunnigan Hills just thirty minutes northwest of downtown Sacramento. Here Toasted Head sprang to life in a blaze of passion, imagination and, as it turns out, actual flames; a welcoming verdant oasis in contrast to the golden hues surrounding it.

101 WINE COMPANY DBA JONATA THE PAIRING WHITE, 2008

Semillon- Sauvignon Blanc Blend.

Intense and powerful showing all the characteristics of a classic white bordeaux, the high acidity mellos and disguises the alcohol. Superb finish.

14 HANDS CHARDONNAY, 2008

Fruit was sourced throughout Washington state, including the Horse Heaven Hills, Yakima Valley, Wahluke Slope and other parts of the Columbia Valley.

 “Aromas of bright apple are joined by subtle notes of white flowers, vanilla and butter. On the palate, juicy pear complements touches of sweet oak and spice, and ends with a soft and lingering finish.”.

Keith Kenison, Winemaker

BTG $ 5.25                             Retail $12.99

 

101 WINE COMPANY DBA JONATA THE PAIRING RED, 2005

Gravel and dark fruits jump out the glass; as it settles and open up the fruit calms dawn and an integrated oak character fills up the middle with a long lingering blueberry note finish.

PALI  RIVIERA SONOMA COAST PINOT NOIR, 2008

The 2008 Pali “Riviera” Pinot Noir features a bright bouquet of plum, fresh raspberries, wild blackberries, coriander, lavender, iron and cinnamon.

TOASTED HEAD UNTAMED, 2007

45% Syrah, 37% Zinfandel, 16% Petite Sirah, 2% Other
