stupid scribbler came out of nowhere with a throwup bomb. There are
plenty of well-established graffiti artists around doing real and vital

Winemakers like those at Rock Hollow are experts at a lot of things.
They understand what it takes to coax first-rate fruit from the
California Central Coast soil. They know how to use a combination of
stainless steel and oak fermentation to produce a bright, rich
Chardonnay. They're privy to the kind of oenic arcana that bestows the
power to produce superlative reds like this Merlot and Cabernet
But they're not too good at predicting the future.
thought they had sure-fire hotcakes with these three varietals. One sip
of each, and they were convinced. How could the public resist? How
could they turn their palates away from such a ripe Cab, a smooth
Merlot, a crisp Chardonnay? This would be the biggest sellout since
Iggy Pop licensed "Lust for Life" to that cruiseship commercial.
Immediately, they started printing up rain checks for the disappointed
customers who would miss out, and buying sunglasses through which the
Rock Hollow folks could safely view their blinding future.
maybe their magic 8-ball had blown a fuse. Maybe their I Ching was
mistranslated. Maybe their goat had particularly illegible entrails.
Whatever the reason, they estimated wrong. All those bottles stubbornly
refused to find good homes. But what were they going to do? Stay up all
night writing furious letters of denunciation to the editors of wine
magazines, charging them with complicity in a global conspiracy to
suppress Rock Hollow? Of course. But then what?
you come in. Rock Hollow's bad guess is your good fortune. The surfeit
of unmoved product lets us feature a solid six-pack of Rock Hollow
wines for the scandalously low price of fifty bucks shipped, give or
take a penny. Don't let the price tag trick you into thinking this is
some cheapo fortified Kool-Aid they siphoned out of the gutter at the
Italian Festival. Hesitate, and some other guy'll swoop in and buy it
out from under you, some guy who understands that wine from vineyards
like Kingsley, Firestone, and Paso Robles would be a steal at twice the
From the shiny pear and apple bouquet to the
refresing melon, guava, and citrus flavors to the lingering mineral
notes in the finish, the Rock Hollow 2006 Chardonnay is a symphony in
sunshine. The ripe cherry, cassis, plum, and spice character of the
Rock Hollow 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon brings a plump, jolly mood to any
special occasion (except maybe a funeral). Don't want none unless it's
got silky tannins, hon? Then back up to the Rock Hollow 2005 Merlot,
which positively reeks of sugar and spice and everything nice.
make our living on other people's mistakes: they have too much of
something that you guys want, so we bring it to you cheap. The
value-for-money equation of this Rock Hollow Six-Pack is so extreme,
our calculators exploded. Thank Quetzalcoatl they bottled too much of
it. If more people made mistakes like this, we could finally afford
central heating in the restrooms around here.
2006 Chardonnay Central Coast
TA 8.3 gm/L
Vineyard sources: Firestone and Kingsley Vineyard
Stainless fermented with 20% having been oak aged with French Oak

The 2006 Chardonnay begins with a bright bouquet of pear and golden apple with accents of lemon zest and caramel. Crisp flavors of melon, guava, honey and citrus unfold across a rich, balanced texture. The finish is long and clean, with lingering mineral nuances.
2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Central Coast
TA 6.9 gm/L
Vineyard Sources: Paso Robles
21 months aging in barrel, combination of both French oak and American oak
1750 cases bottled in July of 2006
The 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon offers ripe aromas of cherry and cassis with accents of black licorice. The mouthfeel is round and seamless, with flavors of black cherry, plum, coffee and mocha. A long, even finish reveals fine tannins with a hint of spice.
2005 Merlot Central Coast
TA 7.4 gm/L
Vineyard Sources: Firestone, Camp 4, Kingsley and Hammond
19 months aging in barrel in a combination of French oak and American oak

The aromas in the 2005 Merlot are those of sandalwood, a hint of tobacco and briary red fruits. There is also sweet vanilla spice that shows as the wine opens. The soft entry is followed by smooth silky tannins. The overall structure is one that will keep the flavors lingering and the mouthfeel bright.
