HOLLYWOOD VINE WINE TASTING
Tuesday, May 8th, 2012
No charge for tastings
Treana White, 2009
50% Marsanne, 50% Viognier
The grapes come primarily from the Santa Lucia Highlands in Monterey County, many from the notable Mer Soleil Vineyard. The wine has floral aromatics, intense stone fruit flavors, overtones of honey, and a particularly lush mouth feel. There’s enough bright fruit to drink this wine right now, but enough acidity and minerality for Treana White to develop with age in the bottle.
BTG 9.00 Retail $22.99
Talbott Logan Chardonnay, 2010
100 % Chardonnay grown in the renown Sleepy Hollow Vineyard located in the Santa Lucia Highlands of California. A classic style full bodied Chardonnay that displays refreshing and bright notes of pear, nectarine, melon, honey, and subtle pleasing French Oak.
BTG $8.00 Retail $20.99
Masi Tupungato Paso Doble , 2009
70% Malbec, 30% Corvina.
This wines expresses the philosophy of the project in Argentina’s Valley of Tupungato “Argentinean Nature, Veneto Style” combining the generosity, strength and exuberance of Argentina with the elegance, attractiveness and ready cordiality of the Veneto. Fragrant and complex on the nose with ripe fruit aromas enhanced by notes of prune and liquorice. Up-front and powerful on the palate with hints of spice and cooked cherries followed by a long appetizing finish.

Drops of Jupiter Petite Syrah, 2009
Deep, bright purple color. Blue fruits, blueberry, boysenberry, cassis, soft and somewhat surprising as petite sirah can often be black, dense and unyieldingly tannic. Medium-bodied, oak accents are subtle overridden by the bright fruit flavors.

St. Supéry Cabernet Sauvignon, 2007
Luxurious, rich and concentrated aromas of black cherry, currant and blueberry are just the start of this 2007 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. The harmonious flavors of black cherry, anise and plush cassis explode through your mouth. This classic Napa Valley Estate Cabernet is elegant and wonderful young but also has everything it needs to age beautifully.
