A delicious Cabernet from the most famous woman winemaker, Celia Welch

2013 Short End Cabernet Sauvignon

Our Impressions:
Here’s a wine for all the movie lovers out there! When making a film, if there is not enough film stock left for another scene, cinematographers will replace the magazine, leaving some leftover stock behind. This leftover stock is called a “short end.”

It’s an appropriate name for our featured wine this week: Hollywood & Vine’s “Short Ends” Cabernet Sauvignon, which was created by blending the “short ends” left over from the barrels that went to create their flagship wine, the 2480 Cabernet and Scarecrow's winemaker Celia Welch is the winemaker for the Short End Cabernet!

In the glass the wine has a rich purple color. The nose shows notes of red fruit and berries – raspberry, wild strawberry, and black cherry among them. On the palate the fruit comes through strong, almost jammy, although there are some cedar and other woody notes to balance it out. It is no “fruit bomb,” but will certainly appeal to fans of fruit-forward Cabs. The surprisingly lengthy finish shows notes of earth and wood, as well as lingering red fruit. This wine got a very strong response the first time we poured it for our customers – don’t stay out of the loop; come by Duke of Bourbon today and try it!

We’d also like to take this opportunity to make all of our valued customers aware of this week’s tasting, an exciting three-day celebration of the wines of Iron Horse! We will taste a full line-up of wines, as well as a vintage of a surprise discontinued wine! A special guest representative from the winery will also be on hand to pour and discuss the wines. The event will be held from 4-10pm on Thursday, Friday and Saturday (6/18-6/20). Don’t miss it!

Winery Notes:
"The Hollywood & Vine 2012 Short Ends Cabernet Sauvignon is a brighter, fresher, slightly more lighthearted version of the flagship 2480 Cabernet Sauvignon. A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 8% Merlot and 4% Malbec, the fruit for the Short Ends hails from the Oakville, Rutherford, and Carneros AVAs of Napa Valley. This lovely combination shows bright raspberry, boysenberry and slightly jammy blueberry fruit, along with a slight tone of warm baking spices (nutmeg, cardamom) and spiced plums. At entry the wine shows a broad, juicy entry, followed by a warm soft mid-palate. Although the flavors are dominated by those ripe purple tones so evident in the aromas, there are also base notes of walnut and sandalwood that show in the flavors, especially as the finish slowly fades. The fruit for this wine was harvested during late September through late October 2012, fermented on skins and aged as separate lots before being blended and bottled in mid-April 2014.”
