HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING Tuesday November 26th 2019              6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings NV Jansz Brut Rosé Tasmania Premium NV Tasmania, Australia There aren’t many better values in rosé sparklers than this. Hints of toast and citrus add nuance to strawberry scents on the nose, while brioche notes add depth to the palate. It’s a bit creamy in texture, yet remains dry and refreshing on the finish.  91 Pts Wine Enthusiast     Editor’s Choice BTG $9.00    Retail $23.99 2018 Tyrrells Hunter Valley, Semillon New South Wales, Australia Distinctive and refreshing, featuring bright, crisp lemony flavors, with undercurrents of lanolin and saline. Offers a supple frame and an impressive finish. 90 Pts Wine Spectator BTG $8.00 Retail $18.99 2015 Vajra Barolo Albe Piedmont, Italy Pretty, featuring rose, cherry, raspberry and mint flavors, with a touch of mineral. Supple, harmonious and elegant, offering a long finish. The aftertaste is tinged with orange peel and tobacco notes. 93 Pts Wine Spectator Top 100: 2019, Rank: 48 Retail $39.99 2015 Aleanna El Enemigo Cabernet Franc Mendoza, Argentina The 2015 El Enemigo Cabernet Franc was produced with fruit from Gualtallary, from a specific 8.8-hectare plot of the Adrianna Vineyard. It fermented in two tries with a portion of full clusters. It has a beautiful nose with plenty of spices and herbs and some Pinot-like red fruit. The palate is harmonious and balanced, with very fine tannins and a velvety texture. 93 Pts Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate BTG 11.00    Retail $28.99 2015 Borsao Zarihs Syrah Campo de Borja, Spain 100% Syrah. Nearly opaque bright dark dusty color. Rich, oaky, spicy fruity toasty aromas of mulberries, burnt vanilla bean, dried leaves, and pepper – black olives with a lively, dry-yet-fruity full body and a distinctive, relaxed finish with grippy, firm tannins and moderate oak flavor. Produced with Australian clones of Syrah (and hence the name, Shiraz spelled backward) planted in 2002, the 2015 Zarihs was cropped from a very warm and early ripening year. It was produced in a sort of Australian way, maturing only 40% of the wine in new American oak barrels for 12 months. 91 Pts Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate BTG $9.50  Retail $23.99
