HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING

No charge for tastings
2011 Patient Cottat Sauvignon Blanc
Offers a light, crunchy feel, with lemon peel, thyme and tarragon notes, showing a flash of gooseberry on the finish.
BTG $5.50 Retail $11.99
2011 Terres Dorees Chardonnay
Beaujolais, Burgundy France
A bright yet luscious meld of melons, pineapple, lemon, and apple seems suffused with shrimp shell reduction and is laced with mouthwatering salinity that dares you to resist the next sip. The cut and invigoration will keep you on your toes yet remain allied to a subtle sense of creaminess; whilst a multiplicity of mineral shadings leaves you shaking your head. 91Pts Wine Advocate

2009 Arnaldo Caprai Montefalco Rosso 70% Sangiovese, 15% Sagrantino and 15% Merlot
Montefalco, Umbria, Italy
Silky tannins frame a core of expressive red fruit in the 2009 Montefalco Rosso. Flowers and spices add complexity on the supple finish. Caprai’s Montefalco Rosso is a more important wine than its modest price suggests. 90 Pts Wine Advocate
BTG $8.75 Retail $21.99
2009 Allamand H 60% Malbec and 40% Cabernet Sauvignon
Has a clean, pure bouquet of dark cherries, blackberry and raspberry leaf. The palate is well-balanced with sappy dark cherry and boysenberry fruit laced with licorice on the finish.
BTG $12.75 Retail $34.99
2010 Stewart Slingshot Cabernet
The aroma opens with hints of violet, raspberry and vanilla; blossoming into the subtle scents of cassis and plum. The palate fills with flavors of
dark fruit and clove with a mouth-feel of well-rounded, smooth tannins. Impressions of dark tobacco leaf and French oak subtly round out the elegant finish.
