Hollywood & Vine Cellars 2480 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of fresh crisp pear, honeysuckle vines, mango, and just a touch of Fuji apple. On the palate, the texture is soft, full, and broad at first glance, with a bright crisp acidity that shows off juicy orange-mango flavors. The finish on this wine is completely dry and at the same time still very full-bodied.

Actor turned director and screenwriter, Doug Barr, relocated to the Napa Valley from Hollywood, in the early 1990’s. Inspired to try his hand at the wine business, Doug called his longtime pal, Bruce Orosz, and together, they created Hollywood and Vine Cellars. Recruiting one of the most talented winemakers in the valley, Celia Welch, H & V released it’s first vintage in 1998 to glowing reviews. Read less

In cooler vintages, the opportunity to create a wine with extraordinary complexity arises, and 2011 provided just such a situation. Cherry pie and cedar aromas intertwine with cooler notes of fresh mint and earthy bay leaf. Darker fruit notes of smokey black tea, roasted pecans, and toasty oak provide depth and complexity to the lighter fruit notes. On the palate, the wine shows flavors that echo the aromas in a structure that is both firm and accessible. This wine has enough fruit intensity and structure to age easily for 10 years or more, but is absolutely enjoyable now. - Celia WelchThe fruit for this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested between October 18 and Nov 1, from vineyards in Oakville, Rutherford, Mt. Veeder, Spring Mountain District and Saint Helena AVAs in the Napa Valley. The grape clusters were selectively hand-harvested, then each cluster was again inspected for perfection.

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon 2480 is big, full-bodied and boisterous. Black fruit, mocha, licorice and spices are some of many notes that emerge from the glass. There is plenty of depth and richness in this full-bodied but eccentric Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2009 needs a few years to settle down, as the tannins are a bit rough around the edges at this stage. Anticipated maturity: 2014-2024. (15.2% alcohol; from Spring Mountain and Mount Veeder fruit): Good full ruby. Aromas of dark berries, dark chocolate and menthol. Sweet, lush and large-scaled, with a slightly aggressive quality to the primary mountain berry flavors. This big boy finishes with a boatload of tannins and a chocolatey quality. This rich, completely ripe Cabernet shows a wealth of complexity from the blend of vineyards that created it. The aromas abound with blackberry, dark chocolate-covered cherries, a touch of anise, and a hint of vanilla/caramel. Its mountain origins (Spring Mountain an...

This rich, completely ripe Cabernet shows a wealth of complexity from the blend of vineyards that created it. The aromas abound with blackberry, dark chocolate-covered cherries, a touch of anise, and a hint of vanilla/caramel. Its mountain origins (Spring Mountain and Mount Veeder) lend structural density to the mid-palate, while the benchland vineyards of Oakville and Saint Helena give a fresh-berry juicy quality to the finish. - Winery

Good full ruby. Brooding dark aromas and flavors of black and blue fruits licorice and lead pencil. More powerful in the mid-palate than the 2007 but with a creamy texture and noteworthy sweetness and lift. Finishes with firm but ripe tannins a note of bitter chocolate and excellent life and length. This may ultimately be more refined than the 2007. Stephen Tanzers IWC.

The real winner here is the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon 2480. Opaque ruby purple, the wine possesses plenty of new oak but also luxurious amounts of black currant fruit, licorice, graphite and spice. This is a full-bodied, moderately tannic Cabernet Sauvignon that should be cellared for another 2-3 years and drunk over the following 15. Good bright, full ruby. Perfumed aromas of cassis, violet and bitter chocolate. Supple on entry, then silky and pliant in the middle, with a restrained sweetness to its blackberry, mint and spice flavors. Leaves the mouth perfumed, but the wine's firm tannins will require some cellaring. I find this a bit finer-grained and suaver than the very good 2006. Bold and intense, this is marked by firm, cedary oak notes underneath vivid, compact dried currant and wild berry, with touches of raspberry. Slow to unfold, ending with taut flavors. Best to decant. Best from 2012 through 2019. 1,210 cases made. -JL
