Hollywood & Vine Cellars Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley Short Ends 2007

External Review:

Rating: 93/100 - As reviewed by Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine (www.cgcw.com) in the August 2010 issue. Young and highly concentrated aromas favoring raspberries with a hint of black currant join forces with caramel and hardwoods smells in the outgoing aromas of this attractive effort. Supple in feel and somewhat polished given its tender years, this one has plenty of fruit and richness in reserve. Not surprisingly, its latter palate shows considerably more of the coarse tannins that one would expect, and the recommended path is to find it a quiet cellar in which it can sleep a bit.Connoisseurs' Guide to California Wine aging recommendation: Cellar for future drinking. Wine will improve with bottle aging.

When you hear the words “Hollywood and Vine," the famous intersection in Los Angeles might come to mind, but for us, the name represents the partnership between friends and a mutual love of wine. 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
