HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday October 20th, 2015
6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2014 CHÂTEAU GRAVILLE-LACOSTE Graves
Bordeaux, France
Sémillon, Sauvignon Blanc and Muscadelle
Crisp and fresh, this opens nicely in the glass to display lively chive, verbena, lemon pulp and fennel seed notes. The pure finish features a white peach echo. 89 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.75 Retail $18.99

2014 Turnbull Sauvignon Blanc Oakville Old Vines
Napa, California
Complex, with a hint of toast weaving in and out, showing luscious notes of orange marmalade, lemon, melon and pear, featuring a fleshy body and a crisp, refreshing finish. 89 Pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.75 Retail $18.99

2011 Domaine de Courteillac Bordeaux Superieur
Bordeaux, France
Good medium-deep red. Nuanced aromas of strawberry, spicy plum and eucalyptus. Juicy and bright but sweet too, with smoke and pepper notes complicating the spicy plum fruit. Finishes with firm but sweet tannins. A great wine for the price.
89 Pts Vinous
BTG $8.00 Retail $19.99

2011 Tenuta di Trinoro Cupole di Trinoro IGT
Tuscany, Italy
A massive undertaking. It counts 36 separate harvests and vinifications before its components of 66% cab franc, 20% merlot, 7% petit verdot, 7% cab sauv are assembled. The wine is hugely intense and generous. There are infinite notes of black fruit, leather and dark coffee bean. It rolls heavy over the palate. 91 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $12.50 Retail $34.99

2012 Edge Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley, California
(75% Cabernet Sauvignon, 14.5% Merlot, and the balance Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot and Malbec), is composed of grapes from various sources. It exhibits a dense ruby/purple color, lots of fruit, and a round, seductive style with good ripeness and a heady finish. 89 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $9.25 Retail $23.99
