Scarecrow Winemaker’s MUST HAVE 2012 CABERNET

What do you call it when a Hollywood actor/director wants to make wine? Hollywood & Vine!  That is the story of Doug Barr, who starred in series like Designing Women, The Fall Guy, Two on the Town, etc.  He also produced The Wizard, The Hit, Fathom, Temptation, Perfect Cover and many other well received scripts.  The multi-talented Barr’s directorial debut (his original screenplay) was Dead Badge with Olympia Dukakis!  He purchased a home at “2480…Street in Napa, once the home of Maynard Amerine, one of the “creators” of Napa Valley Wines.  As the story goes, Doug found a book Maynard published in the home and before long he wanted to get involved in wine – the rest “Hollywood & Vine 2480” is history.

Winemaker “extaordinaire” Celia Welch (Scarecrow, Corra, Barbour, Keever, Kelly Fleming, Lindstrom, etc.) does not need an intro – she is just as much a star and deserves one too (in the Wine Hall of Fame).

This 100% Cabernet combines fruit from top-notch vineyards located in St. Helena, Rutherford, Oakville, Spring Mountain & Mt. Veeder.  The result is an exceedingly complex wine which shows the best attributes of benchland as well as hillsides vineyards. The aromas on this fully ripe Cabernet display chocoalte, black cherry, cola, anise, dusty plums, dried figs and a hint of toasty pecans. Intensely aromatic, the wine displays very ripe, luscious aromas. At entry, the flavor profile echoes the aromas, with ripe fruit and a hint of earth. The texture is full, dense, concentrated and structural, with sweet, juicy fruit notes throughout. The lingering finish tastes of ripe black berries, with deeper notes of caramel and a whiff of vanilla.
