HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday May 17th 2016
6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2014 Meyer-Fonne Muscat d’Alsace Vignoble de Katzenthal
Alsace, France
Mostly sourced from granite soils and the goal is “a dry and ripe style
The wine starts lovely, clear and fresh, very aromatic (Muscat berries, flowers, orangeade) and with a touch of stoniness and spiciness on the nose. Full-flavored and seductive on the palate, but also crisp, pure, piquant and lingeringly salty. Is quite precise and well structured in the finish, and of very good and stimulating quality. Dry styled. 88 pts wine Advocate
BTG $6.75 Retail $14.99

2014 Tangent Paragon Vineyard Sauvignon Blanc
Edna Valley, Ca
Classic and yet distinctive in aromatics, this bottling from the Niven family’s cool-climate vineyard shows cut grass, wet cement and a touch of struck match on the narrowly focused nose. The palate intrigues, with fresh-cut thyme and oregano lifted by a white pepper element. 90 Points Wine Enthusiast
BTG $7.00 Retail $15.99

2013 Baileyana Firepeak Pinot Noir
Edna Valley, Ca
Teases smoked meats, blackberry paste, dark slate, aromatic red cherries and concentratied hibiscus from the nose of this wine. The palate shows plenty of ripe, red fruit, but is made interesting by woody herbs, including oregano and marjoram.
BTG $8.75 Retail $21.99

2013 Mocali Rosso di Montalcino
Tuscany, Italy
This is a fantastic Rosso di Montalcino, loaded with ripe raspberry fruits and great spice notes. Is a soft and luscious wine that delivers a twofold punch of red cherry fruit and spicy oak. It opens to a dark ruby color and compelling aromatic intensity. 89 Pts Wine Advocate

2014 Chateau Puech-Haut Coteaux du Languedoc la Closerie du Pic
Languedoc Roussillon, France
Offers beautiful purity and suppleness in its black raspberry and chocolate-laced aromas and flavors. Full-bodied, rounded and textured, with sweet tannin and a voluptuous, fruit forward style, it should drink nicely on release. 91-94 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $11.25 Retail $29.99
