This ultra-ripe Cabernet displays a rich tapestry of its multi-faceted origins. Juicy black cherry and raspberry notes from Oakville and Rutherford dominate the aromas, as Spring Mountain's trademark purple plum, mocha, and sweet black olive notes add complexity. Coombsville offers a spicy note and its deep, inky-purple color. Structurally, while the wine shows the density of hillside fruit from Mt. Veeder and Spring Mountain, it is further strengthened by the density of fruit from Rutherford, Oakville, and Coombsville. One of our richest offerings to date; the wine will age well for at least 10 years, yet offers a velvety texture that finishes with a juicy sweetness when enjoyed at release.
The Hollywood & Vine 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon was harvested from five very unique growing regions, all within Napa Valley. The fruit comes from the highest reaches of Mount Veeder, the exceptional terroirs of the Oakville and Rutherford Bench, from the steepest Spring Mountain slopes and rich soils of Coombsville . Harvested in separate small lots between September 29thand October 30th2006, the vineyards were kept entirely separate in barrels for the first 6 months, then judiciously blended and allowed to "marry" for several additional months of aging before being lightly filtered for clarity, previous to bottling in May of 2008.
