Hollywood & Vine Cellars, where two guys from the entertainment biz have gotten together to make the best, hand crafted, ultra-premium Napa Valley wine ever!
This Cabernet Sauvignon is a brighter, fresher, slightly more lighthearted version of Hollywood & Vine's flagship 2480 Cabernet Sauvignon. The fruit are from the Oakville, Rutherford, and Carneros AVAs of Napa Valley. This lovely combination shows bright raspberry, boysenberry and slightly jammy blueberry fruit, along with a slight tone of warm baking spices (nutmeg, cardamom) and spiced plums. At entry the wine shows a broad, juicy entry, followed by a warm soft mid-palate. Although the flavors are dominated by those ripe purple tones so evident in the aromas, there are also base notes of walnut and sandalwood that show in the flavors, especially as the finish slowly fades.
A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 4% Malbec.
