HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday October 10th 2017
6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2015 Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc
Marlbourough, New Zealand
Distinctly Marlborough, this Sauvignon Blanc exudes vibrant ripe citrus notes, crunchy greens and hints of tropical guava on the nose. The palate is refined and elegant with superb natural fruit weight providing a juicy core of layered fruit, entwined with a salty textural acidity, vibrant citrus pith and a moreish dry chalky finish. 89 pts Wine Spectator
BTG $7.00 Retail $14.99

2014 Mer Soleil Reserve Chardonnay
Santa Barbara, California
Golden and sun-kissed, the 2014 vintage opens up with the fresh, tropical scents of pineapple and citrus blossom, balanced by the smooth character of vanilla. White peach comes through on the palate, which has a vibrant acidity balanced by the natural character of fully ripe fruit. Medium to full-bodied, this wine has a finish that is lengthy but never heavy, its mix of oak, butter and fruit characteristics blending seamlessly and leaving a harmonious, lingering impression. 90 Pts Vinous
BTG $8.75 Retail $21.99

2015 Elouan Pinot Noir
Oregon
This 2015 Elouan Pinot Noir has greater depth and intensity than what is typical of Oregon Pinot Noir. Rich, ruby in color. Ripe cranberry, a touch of spice and fresh Bing cherry create an inviting bouquet with a subtle earthiness. The flavor profile shows red plum, bright cherry, minerality and dusty earth with a hint of sweet tobacco. The rustic layers of flavor are complemented by vanilla, spice and soft, refined tannins.
BTG $8.25 Retail $19.99

2014 Prisoner Wine Co “Cuttings” Cabernet
Napa Valley, California
80% Cabernet Sauvignon; 20% Blend of Petite Sirah, Syrah, and Zinfandel
Cuttings combines the deep, intense flavor of Cabernet Sauvignon with the structure and richness of Petite Sirah and Syrah. A small amount of Zinfandel adds a nice layer of complexity and spiciness. Deliciously smooth with flavors of blueberry, dark cherry, and cocoa. Aromas of fresh roasted coffee, black currant, vanilla bean, brown spice, and wild berries. 91+ Robert Parker
Retail $39.99

2015 Prisoner Wine Co ” Saldo” Zinfandel
Dry Creek, Lodi, and Amador, California
Dark ruby color with bold aromas of black licorice, black pepper, cherry, and baking spice. The entry is rich, full, and scintillating. The palate is mouthwatering and smooth with a hint of chocolate. The finish is voluptuous with soft, velvety tannins. 90Pts Robert Parker
BTG $10.75 Retail $27.99
