HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday March 6th 2018
6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2015 Muddy Boot Chenin Blanc
Clarksburg, California
As effusive in flavor as a bowl full of orchard fruits, this wine exudes fresh apple, melon and spearmint aromas backed by ripe yet crisp flavors that carry a vein of apple blossoms. It’s not sweet, but it has a pleasant softness around the edges of the mouthfeel.

2014 Atteca Grenache
Calatayud, Spain
(aged for 10 months in new and used French oak barrels) Opaque ruby. Cherry cola, blueberry, candied licorice and incense on the deeply perfumed nose. Coats the palate with sappy black and blue fruit liqueur flavors that are energized by suggestions of peppery spices and a suave floral pastille quality. Appealingly sweet and nicely concentrated, finishing with repeating dark berry character and smooth, fine-grained tannins. 91 Pts Vinous

2015 Matthew Joseph Cabernet
Napa Valley, California
A refined and extroverted example of the opus that is Cabernet grown in the Napa Valley. Expressive from the get go, the nose is redolent with classic cassis and saddle leather, milk chocolate, black cherry, spicy black plum, and warm notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, and vanilla. In the mouth, the broad, creamy tannins blend well with mouth-filling complex flavors of sarsaparilla, sweet pipe tobacco smoke, and dark chocolate. A lingering presence of vanilla and spice persists throughout the impressive finish. d

2016 Chronic Cellars Purple Paradise
Paso Robles, California
79% Zinfandel 11% Petite Sirah 6% Syrah 4% Grenache
Purple Paradise came to us when we were in our own paradise— Mexico. Purple represents the juice, and Paradise represents how you feel when drinking it. Sit back, relax, & float away to your own paradise. This Zinfandel-dominated blend tumbles out on the tongue with dark cherries, fresh, ripe strawberries,a double dip of chocolate and vanilla, and the cool grip of leather.

2012 Peterson Mendo Blendo
Mendocino, CA
42% Petite Sirah 42% Syrah 11% Carignane 5% Grenache
This playful wine is all about having fun. From the whimsical label to the boot-stomping flavors, here’s a wine that doesn’t take itself too seriously and it’s just there for your pure enjoyment. Subtle aromas of vanillin oak and lively berry captivate one into the first sip. After that, this robust wine hooks you with its juicy berry blend of flavors. Ripe blackberry, espresso and dark chocolate are framed with softening tannins and traces of oak.
