HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING Tuesday December 10th 2019              6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings NV Canard Duchene Brut Champagne, France One of Champagne’s hidden treasures, Canard-Duchêne produces a lively style that is fresh and yet satisfying. I have tasted these wines over the last decade and they are very consistent. Medium straw, light yellow in color, steady beads; a triumphant aroma of fresh apples, light yeast and brisk mineral; medium bodied, bright and sassy on the palate; dry, very good acidity, well balanced; bright, tart apple flavors; lively aftertaste. 93 pts S.T.  Retail $39.99 2018 Peju Sauvignon Blanc Napa Valley, California This aromatic and crisp Sauvignon Blanc has a lovely nose of pineapple, white peach, and orange blossom. The palate is bright with notes of apricot, tangerine and nectarine. Balanced with refreshing acidity, our 2018 Sauvignon Blanc concludes with a fresh, clean finish. 90 Pts Wilford Wong BTG $8.00 Retail $18.99 2017 Chronic Cellars Sofa King Bueno Paso Robles, California 55% Syrah, 21% Grenache, 12% Petite Sirah, 8% Tannat, and 7% Mourvedre. The life of the party has just arrived and is setting up shop in your mouth. It’s approachable, as all good party guests should be, with lively flavors of blackberries, cherries and strawberries to get things started. And this Paso red blend knows how to mingle, introducing milk chocolate, caramel and leather to all those beautiful fruits. It’s going to be an interesting night. 91 Pts Tasting Panel BTG $10.00       Retail $24.99 2016 Jamieson Ranch Double Lariat Cabernet Napa Valley, California this wine is bold and elegant with enticing aromas of cocoa, mocha, and juicy blackberries. While flavors of black cherry, cassis, plum, and savory baking spices delight the palate, the soft, rich mouthfeel and supple tannins carry through to a lengthy finish. 92 Pts Decanter Magazine BTG $12.75     Retail $34.99 2017 Juan Gil Blue Label Jumilla, Spain Monastrell, Cabernet-Sauvignon & Syrah. Purple/black in colour, it proffers a nose of pain grille, graphite, earth notes, spice box, black fruits, and a hint of balsamic. It opens in the glass to reveal excellent density, savory flavors, plenty of spice, and a lengthy, pure finish. 93 Pts Vinous BTG $12.75  Retail $34.99
