Hollywood & Vine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 2480 2011
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.
External Reviews for Hollywood & Vine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon 2480
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.
