HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday, September 1st, 2015
6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

NV Lalucca Prosecco
Veneto, Italy
The nose is instantly defined and distinctive, offering up bold orchard fruits, crisp pears, and lemon curd, all of which come together in a rich, creamy off-dry style that is extremely appealing. There is a deft touch of minerality, playing nicely against the subtle sweetness of the wine. Vinified entirely in stainless steel employing the Charmat method, native, indigenous yeasts are utilized when possible. The finish shows excellent length and fine overall balance.
BTG $5.75 Retail $11.99

2013 Juan Gil Moscatel
Jumilla, Spain
Light, green-tinged gold. Fresh melon, peach and kiwi aromas are complemented by jasmine and white pepper. Juicy, tightly wound pit fruit and honeydew flavors. Delivers a lot of juicy, refreshing fruit and comes off almost weightless on the long, intensely spicy finish.
BTG $6.00 Retail $12.99

2013 Manifesto Cabernet
Lake and Solano County , California
Deep ruby red in color. Bright, floral nose of cassis, dark red cherry, and rose petals. Secondary aromas of chocolatey rhubarb with hints of saddle leather and mint. Silky, medium bodied flavors of ripe red cherry, plum and cassis with backend notes of rhubarb, red meats, and Baker’s chocolate.
BTG $6.25 Retail $13.99

2012 Jean Bous Grand Reserve Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
It presents an opaque, almost black violet color. Aromas with hints of ripe red fruit, plum, blackcurrant, black pepper and hints of candied fruit and jam. It has subtle notes of chocolate, coffee and walnut thanks to a long aging in French oak barrels. On the palate it is velvety in style, with soft and rounded tannins and notes of blackberry, spices and truffle that provide an aromatic complexity with an exquisite finish. BTG $8.50 Retail $21.99

2012 Renwood Zinfandel
Amador County, Ca
A fresh and youthful wine featuring strawberry and raspberry fruit aromas with just a hint of oak. The flavors are soft and flavorful with an appealing tang on the finish. This wine reminds us of old time Zinfandel where the fruit is prominent and the wine very honest with great drinkability. This wine is not serious or complicated, and with none of the heavy influence of oak or overzealous cellaring, it is a great sipping wine.
