HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday, November 4th, 2014
6-9 Pm
No charge for Tastings

NV Juve Y Camps Pinot Noir Rose Reserva Brut
Penedes, Spain
A non-vintage sparkling wine from Pinot Noir grapes, which is quite dark-colored, displays a bright cherry red color with a showy nose of cherries, truffles and strawberry jam with a fresh, pungent palate, balanced acidity and flavors. Different, with a strong personality. It feels like a red sparkling wine, and quite good, by the way! 91 pts Wine Advovate
BTG $7.50 Retail $17.99

2013 Chateau Puech-Haut Coteaux du Languedoc Cuvee Prestige Rose
Languedoc Roussillon, France
A fabulous rose that’s perfect for a hot day quaffing (I know, as I go through more than a case every year), It is a direct press of 70% Grenache and 30% Cinsault aged all in stainless steel vats. Very light pink in color, it gives up fresh, crisp aromas of rose petal, white peach and hints of melon in its medium-bodied, clean, elegant and hard-to-resist personality. Buy it by the case. 91 Pts Wine Advocate

2011 Domaine Anne Gros Jean Paul Tollot Minervois la Ciaude
Languedoc Roussillon, France
Mostly Carignan, from 100+-year-old vines, the 2011 Minervois La Ciaude offers beautiful typicity in its saline-like, mineral-laced and earthy dark fruits, spice and graphite aromas and flavors. Textured, medium to full-bodied and perfectly balanced, it’s a knockout bottle of wine to drink over the coming 7-8 years.

2011 Tua Rita Rosso dei Notri
Tuscany, Italy
Based on 50% Sangiovese and 50% Cabernet and Merlot, this is clean and polished, and it offers bright notes of berry and cherry, plus mild touches of nut and tobacco. The palate is supple and velvety. The 2011 Rosso dei Notri is a gorgeous wine laced with dark red berries, licorice, mint and sweet spices.

2011 Bodegas Breca Garnacha Old Vines
Calatayud , Spain
This dense red shows a savory character, with tar, ink and licorice notes framing the core of plum and meat flavors. Features firm, well-integrated tannins and fresh acidity. Distinctive. 90 Pts Wine Spectator
