HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday May 15th 2018
6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2016 Attems Pinot Grigio
Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Italy
The wine appears a very luminous, light yellow-gold. The bouquet, seductive and pronounced, releases crisp citrus alternating with ripe apricot, enriched with elegant floral impressions of hawthorn and acacia blossom. The supple palate offers exemplary crispness and a vibrant fruitiness. 90 Pts James Suckling
Btg $8.00 Retail $18.99

2017 Minuty “M” Cotes De Provence Rose
Provence, France
Chateau de Minuty is located on the St Tropez Peninsula, with its vineyards virtually overlooking the Mediterranean. This rose is quintessential of the local style, with the blend employing the little-known Tibouren grape, a variety grown almost exclusively in Provence. Pale honeysuckle pink, and offering a clean nose of citrus fruit, offset by subtle floral and candied notes, its fresh acidity makes for an incisive and lively palate, with a rounded feel.90 Pts Wine & Spirits

2015 Masseria Altemura Primitivo
Pulia, Italy
Dark and profound ruby red. This wine offers the nose full and intense aromas with hints of plums, jams of red fruits and sweet accents of spices. A wine of a good body, it has a mouth-filling flavour that is warm and soft and expresses a highly mature fruitiness, supported by a pleasant complex of sweet tannins. An intense ruby red, it offers scents of sour cherries, violets, liquorice and sweet spicy hints. It is velvety, warm and persistent: a wine to sip slowly together with a substantial dish. 91 Pts Falstaff
BTG $7.00 Retail $14.99

2016 Bacon Red Blend
Central Coast, California
35% Syrah, 25% Grenache, 20% Mourvedre, 10% Merlot, 10% Petite Sirah
Full-bodied and packed with grapey and candied flavors, bursting with luscious berry flavors and a mouth-watering finish. 89 Pts WW
BTG 8.00 Retail $18.99

2015 Juggernaut Hillside Vineyards Cabernet
Alexander Valley, California
Steep hillside vineyards are difficult to maintain and harvest, but the results are worth it. A huge, rich, opulent wine with complex flavors of chocolate, coffee, blackberries, cassis, mint, and velvety tannins. Aged in new French oak adds further complexity with vanilla and toast as well as creating a round and supple texture on the palate.
BTG $8.25 Retail $19.99
