HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday, February 3rd, 2015
6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2013 Cristom Pinot Gris
Willamette Valley,Oregon
Fermented in stainless steel tanks and does not spend any time in oak barrels. It has a certain creaminess that comes from the several months that the wine spends on it lees. The wine has bright citrus-blossom aromas that range from tangerine zest to lime blossom. Apple, pear and melon are the fruit flavors that are often noted on the palate. This is a bright and lively wine that offers a broad flavor profile.

2013 Jocelyn Massicot Pouilly Fume
Loire Valley, France
Strongly illustrates its flint origins in a nose of white currant, grapefruit, nettle, sage and dill. Satisfyingly juicy on the palate, with hints of salt, herbs and pungent smokiness garnishing its melon, grapefruit and currants, in its finish it is persistently pungent and takes a rather austerely stony turn.
BTG $9.00 Retail $22.99

2013 Luli Pinot Noir
Santa Lucia Highlands, California
A pretty, fruit-loaded effort that offers up loads of ripe black cherry, spice-box and underbrush in its forward, supple, textured and delicious profile. It’s a fabulous Pinot Noir and should drink well for a couple years. 90 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $10.50 Retail $27.99

2012 BODEGA CATENA ZAPATA
Mendoza, Argentina
An intense red, showing concentrated flavors of dark plum, kirsch, dried beef and baker’s chocolate flanked by notes of tobacco leaf and ginger. The powerful finish is filled with sanguine details. 90Pts Wine Spectator

2011 Bodega Aleanna El Enemigo Cabernet Franc
Mendoza, Argentina
92% Cabernet Franc and 8% Malbec
The winemaking is traditional Mendoza style. 100 year old Alsatianfoudres (barrels) from Italy that habe been re-toasted and reassembled in Mendoza. The gentleness of this wood, brings out the true character of cool climate cabernet franc. Refreshing black berry flavours and herbs, the texture soft and round, lushly built with crispy acidity.92 Pts Wine Advocate
