Yes each and every one of these wines are made by a Super Star, grapes are sourced from prestigious vineyards and regions, critics love them and it’s difficult to find them, and taste them. Two delightful and refreshing white wines. Side by side Pinot Noir from Oregon and Santa Barbara and a big juicy Zinfandel.

Did I mention that they happen to be part of a tiny collection of wines from a huge Wine Distributor that is call the Gem’s portfolio. 

 

HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING!

Tuesday November 9th, 2010

6:00-9:00 pm

No charge for tastings

 

QUPÉ BIEN NACIDO CUVÉE, 2008

50% Viognier and 50% Chardonnay, primarily from grapes grown at the Bien Nacido Vineyard in the Santa Maria Valley.

This is the 17th vintage of this unique proprietary white wine. The aromas show that classic floral, apricot and peach that comes from ripe Viognier… all balanced by crisp, fresh, minerality from the chardonnay.

BTG $ 7.25                             Retail $18.99

 

RED CAR CHARDONNAY BOXCAR SONOMA COAST, 2008

Light, bright yellow. Musky citrus pith, peach pit, iodine and smoky lees on the ripe nose, along with a suggestion of spice cake. Densely packed and spicy, with a restrained sweetness and a strong smoky undertone to its lemon and pit fruit flavors. Finishes with good stony cut, slight warmth and lingering flavors. This first chardonnay from Red Car is made from mostly old Wente clones.

BTG $ 7.50                             Retail $19.99

 

AU BON CLIMAT SANTA BARBARA PINOT NOIR, 2008

This wine is just easy to drink. Whether with fresh grilled salmon or left-over roast chicken or just in a glass by itself, the pretty plum and spring strawberry flavors of ABC SB Pinot are simply delicious. There is nothing pretentious here, just well balanced, nicely textured, brightly fruity wine that seems to go with everything.

BTG $ 9.00                              Retail $23.99

 

ATTICUS WILLAMETTE VALLEY PINOT NOIR, 2007

Yamhill Springs Vineyard (55%) and Hawk’s View Vineyards (45%).

The bright cherry notes on the nose are followed by subtle aromas of blueberry, raspberry, pomegranate and undertones of sweet jasmine, rose and leather. The fresh berries are reflected delicately on the palate and are nicely balanced by light smooth tannins which develop into a lingering finish.

 Less than 275 cases were made

BTG $10.00                              Retail $27.99

 

DAVID NOYES ZINFANDEL, 2007

The best of Dry Creek Valley Zinfandel; blended with Petite Sirah 14% and old vine Carignane 11 %. Complex aromas of ripe cherries, rose petal, sage and cinnamon. Full-bodied with enough tannin for aging, but rich enough to enjoy immediately. Lingering aftertaste of red currant and blackberry jam.

BTG $ 9.25                                 Retail $24.99
