2480 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

“Swan Song” vintage for 2480 Hollywood & Vine Cellars. Winery closed & last vintage 2015 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Was introduced to wine by Rick Webster -Owner Rolf’s Wines Newport Beach with the 2002 Vintage. He stated at the time in 2004 that the 2480 H&V CS was the best wine in his store under $100! Celia Welch got some of the Old Vines Block of the JJ Cohn in 2002! Bought it for many years many vintages @ $82. QPR! Sad to see it go! Cheers 🍇🍷👍🏻👏🏻 — 6 months ago

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

I’ve been fortunate to have tried a few vintages of Scarecrow, but have never had the opportunity to sit down and simply enjoy a bottle from start to finish. I acquired this 2012 with that exact intention (and also to share with my father-in-law, who is the reason I have a passion for wine).

A hallmark for Scarecrow (in my opinion) is a weightless gravitas. How Celia can craft a Cabernet that is consistently so elegant and supremely balanced is beyond me. 2012, being an excellent Napa vintage, and entering its 10yr age had me thinking this would be pop and pour…wrong! Lots of youthful exuberance here. More red/black than purple in the glass. Slightly high toned dark-berry fruits, currant, floral notes (violets) and graphite. The entry and mid-palate again have this gorgeous weight…added notes of dark cocoa and espresso, but mostly a balanced core of dark fruits. The finish sports quite a grip (even after two hours), but it sure was fun to still taste the wine almost 30 seconds later! Decant 2hrs if opening now, or hold for another 5-7yrs to enjoy this type of profile.

I bought the new vintage for the wine list but because it’s allocated , I haven’t even tasted it!
I get 3 bottles a year …. Sometimes 6 if I beg the family

@Joshua Fisher : Great bottle to have on a list! Lucky you if you can get 6. I’ve only been on the list a few years, but share my allocation with someone…definitely a pricey acquisition.

@James Cahill : My pleasure. Certainly a spectacular bottle to enjoy now, while only getting better!

Celia Ribera del Duero Tempranillo 2012

Big, beautiful wine here. Cocoa, cinnamon, vanilla, licorice, and camphor punch you in the schnozz. Firm tannic grip. Black cherry and currant hiding behind the oak. Powerful and pricey. — 2 years ago

Another long overdue thank you to Owner-Winemaker Robert Foley & GM-Truett Welch for Hosting us last November for our Winery Visit. Tasted through all current vintage portfolio offerings & enjoyed every wine. The 2014 Claret & 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon were in particular standout efforts; “Smokin Good”! Buy em’ if you can find em’!
