HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday, March 19th 2013
6:00-9:00 PM
No charge for tastings

2011 Allan Scott Sauvignon Blanc
Marlborough, New Zealand
Succulent, with fresh passion fruit, lime and white grapefruit flavors that are bright and very juicy, joined by hints of jasmine and green apple on the finish. 89pts Wine Spectator
BTG $6.25 Retail $14.99

2011 Gramona “Gessami 50% Muscat d’Alexandria, 20% Muscat Frontignan, 25% Sauvignon Blanc and 5% Gewurztraminer
Penedes, Spain
Bright straw-yellow in color with a wonderfully aromatic nose of apricots, pears, citrus, jasmine and mineral notes. Light-medium in body with bright acidity, the wine offers clean flavors of pears, peaches, and spice, with no oak. It is well balanced to enjoy in its youth. The wine is long and smooth on the finish, with lingering floral notes.
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2010 Tacchino Dolcetto
Piedmont, Italy
Tank-fermented and aged, medium-bodied, offers beautiful blueberry, black cherry and licorice-infused fruit. It can be served slightly chilled (if you wish) over the next several years. 89 pts Wine Advocate
BTG $6.00 Retail $13.99

2009 Paraiso Pinot Noir
Santa Lucia Highlands , Central Coast, California
Appealing for its easy-drinking allure, with ripe plum, raspberry, wild berry and spice flavors. Medium- to full-bodied, showing off a racy earthiness on the finish, which gives this a nice touch.
BTG $7.50 Retail $17.99

2009 Mauritson Zinfandel
Dry Creek Valley, Sonoma, California
The nose is full of dark fruits and a complex array of brooding flavors. Aromas of blackberry, minerals, cracked pepper, blueberry pie, and sweet oak mingle harmoniously. The front palate is full of ripe and juicy tannins. This Zinfandel has plenty
of structure for those of you who would like to lay it down. However, the tannins are broad shouldered without sharp edges for those who want to drink it now. The finish persists long after the last sip is gone.
BTG $9.75 Retail $24.99
