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

The Wine: The aromas on this fully ripe Cabernet display mocha, 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 very ripe berries, with deeper notes of caramel and vanilla.
