HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday, July 31st, 2012
No charge for tastings
2010 Gravity Hills “Vertigo” Chenin Blanc, Riesling
Central Coast, CA
Adding a little Riesling to a Chenin Blanc gives this wine the balance to aroma and taste that it needs. This easy drinking white is a total porch pounder. When you least expect it, this wine is gone and you realize that you want more. Easy fruit, light peach, melon, with a crisp finish.

2011 Home Grown Barbera
Santa Rosa, California
It has been noticed thatdifferent aromas flow from the glass depending on the disposition of the nose smelling or the tongue tasting, kind of mood-ring style. But most people agree that there’s plenty of red and blackberries, with just the right sprinkle of funk to keep it interesting.

2008 Angel Vine “Les Colline” Zinfandel
Walla Walla, Oregon
The 08 Les Collines’s decadent scents of black cherries and sweet spice are matched by velvety cherry flavors, jammy and juicy fruit, and hints of leather, coffee, and anise. It simultaneously delivers fat, classic Zinfandel fullness and exuberant, lively, food-friendly balance.
BTG $7.75 Retail $19.99
2009 Hill Wine Company Cabernet
Dark purple in color, this Cabernet Sauvignon has delicious tender aromas of red fruits coulis with some black fruits and notes of pepper and
clove. The seamless mouthfeel is soft and silky. The finish is gentle and soft with more flavors of red fruits.
BTG $9.50 Retail $24.99
2011 Anno Domini Moscato
Anno Domini Moscato is as close as one can get to capturing Summer in a bottle. From the moment the bottle is opened intense fruit aromas of orange blossoms, peaches, apricot and ripe citrus delight the senses. The refreshing flavors of peach, tangerine, melon and honeysuckle make the Anno Domini Moscato a sweet expression of one of Italy’s most celebrated growing regions. The finish is clean and the bubbles dance on your tongue.
