HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday July 24th 2018
6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

NV Adami Garbel Prosecco
Veneto, Italy
Bright straw. Almost intoxicating aromas of peach, tangerine, vanilla and white flowers; this is exactly what you expect a Prosecco to smell like. Then simpler and not especially long, with flavors of peach and apricot that are clean and nicely focused. The word garbèl in the local dialect refers to freshness and lightness, traits this wine exudes in spades. 88+ Vinous
BTG $7.75 Retail $17.99

2017 Villa Wolf Pinot Noir Rose
Pfalz , Gemany
The Pfalz is a very warm and sunny region, often called the “Tuscany of Germany,” so all of the Pinot varieties do well here. The Villa Wolf Pinot Noir Rosé is a true rose, made with a brief maceration before pressing to extract color. It is light and refreshing, with deliciously bright berry and fruit flavors and a clean, zippy finish. 90 Pts Wine Enthusiast

2017 Pulenta La Flor Malbec
Mendoza, Argentina
This youthful and fruit-driven Malbec was produced with grapes from vineyards in two different zones of Mendoza, with only half of the wine matured in barrel for four to six months. La Flor is a line of young wines that aim for fruit and typicity, with a good quality-to-price rapport—wines that are easy to drink and have some complexity but are still easy to understand. This tries to show the best of Mendoza, with very floral, elegant notes and sweet tannins from Agrelo and more freshness and minerality from Los Árboles, which is higher in altitude. This is very complete and pleasant, balanced and gentle. 90 Pts Wine Advocate

2013 Zenato Alanera
Veneto, Italy
55% Corvina, 25% Rondinella, 10% Corvinone, 5% Merlot, 5% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Brilliant ruby in color, Alanera delights the senses with a variety of aromas and flavors that include fresh and dried cherries and prunes, sweet spice, and hints of coffee and tobacco. On the palate, Alanera is full-bodied with elegant and velvety tannins. Vibrant acidity brings balance and freshness, and supports a long and harmonious finish. 91 PTS James Suckling
BTG $7.25 Retail $15.99

2015 Tikves Bella Voda
Macedonia
The saturated purple colored 2015 Belavoda is made from 50% Plavec and 50% Vranec aged in 75% new French oak. It offers loads of blueberries and jammy blackberry fruits as well as notes of crushed rocks and spring flowers, full-bodied richness, present, yet polished tannin, and a great finish. While a big, rich wine, this beauty has remarkable purity of fruit, is impeccably balanced and has a great finish. At 21 dollars, it’s a smoking value. 92 Pts Wine Advocate
