2013 Short Ends Hollywood & Vine Cellars, Napa Valley, USA
When making a movie and there’s not enough film left in the camera for another take, we replace the magazine and call the left over film stock; “Short Ends”. Similarly, after crafting our Hollywood and Vine “2480” wines, we often have a little wine left from each of our world class vineyard sources, and we blend those “Short Ends” into this remarkable and uniquely delicious Napa Valley wine.
Alcohol By Volume:
The Hollywood & Vine 2013 Short Ends Cabernet Sauvignon is a brighter, fresher, slightly more lighthearted version of the flagship 2480 Cabernet Sauvignon. A blend of 77% Cabernet Sauvignon, 20% Merlot and 3% Malbec, much of the Cabernet base for this wine hails from Oak Knoll District, one of the cooler regions of Napa Valley. Judiciously blended with Cabernet Sauvignon and Merlot from Saint Helena, as well as a touch of Malbec from Yountville, complexity is the end result of this carefully-crafted combination of varieties and growing areas. Cherry, clove, anise and forest-floor aromas combine with warm spiced plums and a hint of mocha to create a wine that will stand up well to a wide array of foods.
