HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday, October 7th, 2014
6-9 Pm
No charge for Tastings

2013 Pomelo Sauvignon Blanc
Lake County, Ca
Fermented in all stainless steel tanks; extremely long and cold ferment allows for the fragrant and big fruit flavors to be appreciated. The crisp acidity is retained and then rounded out and complimented by a broadened mouth and ever-slight sweetness.A mouth-watering, vivid style; this wine explodes with delicious flavors of passion fruit, guava, quince, lime peel; with an intensely grapefruit nose.
BTG $6.00 Retail $12.99

2013 De Wetshof Limestone Hill Chardonnay
Cape Town, South Africa
Never sees oak, and offers impeccably pure, refreshing apple, peach and lemon fruit, a lovely leesy richness of texture, and a nutty, chalky, fruit-filled finish of imposing length. Understated and less tropical than some of the better un-oaked Chardonnays, this wine possesses far better balance and sheer drinkability – not to mention more finesse – than 99% of the world’s Chardonnay I have experienced.” 88 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $6.75 Retail $15.99

2010 Paraiso
Monterey, California
The wine is youthful and approachable, with soft acidity and a juicy mid-palate with seemless transition. The focus is decidedly Burgundian, with flavors of cherry and raspberry. Santa Lucia Highlands — the ideal new world site for top Flight Pinot Noir. Here, the mountainside soils, cool breezes from nearby Monterey Bay, and sustainable farming practices combine to grow pinot noir of outstanding character and elegance.
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2013 Renacer Punto Final Malbec
Mendoza, Argetina
A fruity style, with good snap to the raspberry jelly, cherry tart and damson plum flavors. Bittersweet chocolate and mineral accents show on the finish, which features an appealing tartness. 88 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $6.00 Retail $12.99

2010 Ch De Brondeau
Bordeaux, France
This is lively and still a touch taut, with notes of plum skin, cherry preserves and fig wound at the core, while roasted wood spice and anise hints flitter around. Features solid grip and stays racy through the finish, displaying an echo of mocha.
