HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING

Tuesday February 26th 2019

6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2017  The Palm By Whispering Angels

Provence, France

The Palm is a blend of Grenache, Cinsault and Syrah made from grapes which are selected from the best vineyards in the appellation Côteaux d’Aix-en-Provence.

Pale pink with green hues both of which are clear & very expressive. Great aromatic freshness on the nose followed by more subtle, fruity notes on the palate. The freshness is coupled with exceptional length and roundness. Crisp and suave finish.

BTG $7.25   Retail $15.99

2017 Kracher Pinot Gris

Burgenland, Austria

Hints of ripe Mirabelle and yellow apple show on the rather restrained nose. The palate adds bright, lemony freshness and zesty, pleasantly bitter citrus pith to the fruit, creating a texture alive with juiciness and freshness. It leaves a lasting, lemony aftertaste. 91 Pts Wine Enthusiast

BTG $9.00 Retail $22.99

2016 Domaine Pegau “Maclura” Cote Du Rhone

Rhone Valley, France

60% Grenache, 20% Syrah, 10% Cinsault and 10% Mourvèdre,

A pleasant whiff of barnyard lends savory tones of earth and animal to crisp blackberry and plum flavors. It’s an opulent, slightly warming wine with a plummy, voluminous mouthfeel that’s vibrantly balanced by fresh acidity. The finish is moderately long, lingering on hints of sun-dried thyme, lavender and grippy tannins. Enjoy now–2025. 91 Pts Wine Enthusiast, 90-92 Pts Wine Advocate

BTG $8.75  Retail $21.99

2015 Meerlust Red Blend

Stellenbosch, South Africa

Merlot,  Cabernet Sauvignon,  Cabernet Franc,  Petit Verdot

The wine has an intense, dark purple colour with a violet rim; bright and vivacious in the glass, youthful. The nose is expressive with powerful cassis, plum, exotic spice and hints of floral aromas. On the palate, the wine is medium-bodied with intense flavours of crushed black fruit, cassis, vanilla, and dark chocolate. The tannins are soft and silky, the acidity fresh, the flavour profile focused and linear. The wine has a persistent and long-lasting aftertaste. 89 Pts Vinous

BTG $7.50        Retail 16.99

2017 Noemia “A Lisa” Malbec

Patagonia, Argentina

Expressive, exuberant and open, clean and focused. A dense violet and plum color, with a bouquet of dark berries, cherry, minerals, and cocoa. Medium-bodied with an excellent structure, notes of cherry and cassis; with balanced, persistent tannins. 93 Pts Robert Parkers Wine Advocate, 92 Pts James Suckling
