HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday October 3rd 2017
6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2016 Colimoro Pinot Grigio
Alto Adige, Italy
Crafted with Pinot Grigio grapes grown in the pristine Alto Adige slopes of Northeast Italy. Flavors of white peach, honeysuckle, and ripe melon perfectly pair with the refreshing acidity. Full-bodied, with great balance, length, and a sliced green apple finish.
BTG $6.75 Retail $13.99

2014 Buried Cane Cabernet
Walla Walla, Washington
Washington State’s primary vineyard areas are at the same latitude as Bordeaux, France, the historic home of Cabernet Sauvignon. It shouldn’t really be any surprise that great Cabernet wine is made in both places. Washington State Cabernet Sauvignon makes deep, purple colored wines, with definitive dark-fruit and herbal varietal character. While they are appealing for that dark fruit in their youth, they have the structure to age remarkably in the bottle.
Aromas of black cherry, red raspberry, and fresh-roasted coffee, with hints of spice. Soft, rich, and round in the mouth. Well-balanced with a lingering cherry and spice finish.
BTG $6.50 Retail $12.99

2013 Bousquet Grand Reserve Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
It presents an opaque, almost black violet color. In the nose it shows intense 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. 93 Pts James Suckling
BTG $8.75 Retail $21.99

2014 Peju Province Merlot
Napa Valley, California
Fragrant aromas of bright raspberry, blueberry and cigar box introduce the lush plum, blackberry and currant flavors of this firmly structured Merlot. With mouth-filling tannins, this wine is complex and decadent featuring layers of mocha, anise and crème brûlée. Culminating with elegance and hints of cocoa nibs, will continue to mature for the next 6- 8 years.
BTG $10.75 Retail $27.99

2014 Angels and Cowboys
Sonoma, California
Zinfandel, Malbec and Cabernet
The grapes were allowed to hang for an extra long period of time to develop profound concentration and opulence. An impeccable integration of new and neutral French oak, purely driven to accentuate the fleshy layers of dark fruit and exotic spices that make up this Proprietary Red. It holds a bold, massive and flavorful style. The aromas are of bing cherries, red spice, chocolate and sandalwood. In the mouth it has explosive flavors, mouth-filling body and silky texture.
BTG $8.00 Retail $18.99
