HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING

Tuesday November 19th 2019            

6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2018 Wither Hills Sauvignon Blanc

Marlborough, 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. 91 Pts Wine Spectator

BTG $7.00    Retail $14.99

2016 Flowers Chardonnay

Sonoma Coast, California

Medium yellow in color. Aromas of straw, lemon verbena and honeysuckle mingle with layers of lemon meringue and lychee. Upon entry are flavors of lemon curd, honeydew, and hints of star fruit and wet stone, balanced with a touch of fine grained tannin. The crisp finish is countered with a spicy note of white pepper and lingers with coastal minerality.

91 Pts Robert Parker

Retail $37.99

2015 Quercibella Mongrana

Tuscany, Italy

50% Sangiovese, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 25% Merlot.

A juicy and delicious 2015 red with plenty of berry and chocolate character. Medium to full body, round tannins and a flavorful finish. 93 Pts James Suckling

2016 Los Vascos Grand Reserve Carmenere

Colchagua Valley, Rapel Valley, Chile

Deep, intense ruby red. Fruity aromas of cherry, blackberry and ripe plum on a background of roasted hazelnuts, black pepper, ripe red bell pepper, puréed black olives, and roasted eggplant. Notes of dark chocolate, cherry liqueur, and black olive on the palate that harmonically combine with forward, elegant and persistent tannins. As a whole, an amazing communion of fruit and spices that helps the wine express its personality and typicity to the fullest. 92 Pts James Suckling

BTG $8.00    Retail $18.99

2017 Leviathan Meritage

Napa Valley, California

Cabernet Sauvignon, Syrah, Merlot, and Cabernet Franc

Seductive black cherry, blackberry and currant fruits laced with cocoa nib, sweet baking spices and cigar box with silky texture and a long, savory finish. Leviathan is a red wine from legendary winemaker Andy Erickson, the former winemaker for Screaming Eagle.
