Hollywood & Vine Cellars 2480 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$84.95

The Hollywood & Vine "2480" is a great newcomer to the boutique Napa Cabernet scene. Try this powerhouse Cab while its still available! The ultra-ripe Hollywood & Vine Cabernet "2480" from Celia Masyczek (Staglin Family) shows the complexity of its multi-faceted origins. Bright black cherry and blackberry notes from Oakville and Rutherford dominate the aromas, as Spring Mountain’s trademark ripe plum and cedar/forest floor notes add complexity. Structurally, the wine shows the density of hillside fruit from Mt. Veeder and Spring Mountain, as well as the supple tannins of the benchland vineyards. previous vintagte 93 Points Wine Spectator: "A big, bold, rich and expressive style that packs in lots of flavor yet manages to be elegant and stylish without being heavy. Deep perfumed currant, floral, spice and berry flavors coat the palate, ending with ripe integrated tannins. Drink now through 2014." Fun Fact: "2480" refers to the address in Napa Valley where owner Doug Barr (after moving from Hollywood) purchased his property, which happened to be from the estate of Maynard Amerine, a pioneer in the California wine industry.

100% Cab blended from several top vineyards, each different. Spent 21 months on French oak. Nice integrated fruit aromas with sweet notes. On the palate complex fruits, cherry and raspberry come out first then layers in some dark berry fruit with leather and cacao. Tangy acidity, fine tannins, well balanced lingering ending smooth. Very nice, a little pricey but if you are looking for something special, look no further.
