HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING

Tuesday January 28th 2020             

6-9 Pm No charge for Tastings

2017 Pasqua Passimento Bianco

Veneto, Italy

Grown in the Valpolicella area, these Garganega grapes are partially dried, losing 20 to 30% of their weight, before fermentation. The result is a very unique wine full of dried apricot and honey flavours, with a creamy and rich mouthfeel but balanced by the bright acidity. This is crying out for food. 91 Pts Decanter Magazine

BTG $7.50  Retail $16.99

2018 Julia James Chardonnay

Central Coast, California

Ripe lemon in color, this Chardonnay has golden highlights in the glass. Offers a mix of fresh pear, apple, melon and citrus on the nose. There is a bright, juicy, almost racy personality to go with exotic flavors of tropical fruits, vanilla, nectarine, and a kiss of oak. Continuing to open up nicely in the glass, it has a creamy mid-palate and a round, buttery finish which lingers on the palate.

BTG $6.75 Retail $13.99

2016 Monteverro Verruzzo Super Tuscan

Tuscany, Italy

40% Merlot , 25% Cabernet Franc, 25% Cabernet Sauvignon, 10% Sangiovese

Intense ruby with a touch of purple on the rim. ON THE NOSE: Rich expression of cherry, blueberry, blood orange and tomato sauce with some hints of cigar box

ON THE PALATE: Round entrance evolving on a framed mouthfeel with cherry muffin,

cassis and laurel finishing on touches of plum and lilac. 91 Pts SK

BTG 8.00   Retail $18.99

2018 Cordero Con Piel De Lobo Malbec

Mendoza, Argentina

The nose offers plenty of attractive spice and purple flowers, as well as cassis. The palate is fresh and supple, juicy blueberry flesh abounds and the finish is nicely resolved.

92 Pts James Suckling

BTG $6.75   Retail $13.99

2016 Peju Piccolo Red Blend

Napa Valley, California

Proprietary red blend of cabernet sauvignon, petit verdot, cabernet franc, merlot, petite sirah and sangiovese.  Bright with flavors of blackberry and black cherry combined with cocoa

nibs and toasted marshmallow. The palate is round and supple, with fruity characteristics

of raspberry jam and soft, silky tannins. Culminating with hints of white pepper and spice.
