When you hear the words “Hollywood and Vine," the famous intersection in Los Angeles might come to mind, but for Doug Barr and Bruce Orosz, the name represents the partnership between friends and a mutual love of wine.

Actor turned director and screenwriter, Doug Barr, relocated to the Napa Valley from Hollywood, in the early 1990’s. Inspired to try his hand at the wine business, Doug called his longtime pal, Bruce Orosz, and together, they created Hollywood and Vine Cellars. Recruiting one of the most talented winemakers in the valley, Celia Welch, H & V released it’s first vintage in 1998 to glowing reviews. “2480” appears boldly on every bottle, and has become synonymous with the winery name.

Great Cabernets show complexity in both aromas and flavors, and an unmistakable sense of terroir.  This 100% Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon offers lovely notes of deep dark cassis, cherries baked into a toasted wheat crust, warm blackberries still on the vine.  At entry, the wine shows soft, broad, silky tannins and a brightness from the natural fruit acidity, all framed in a structure that shows a touch of French oak and a firm core that suggests considerable age-worthiness.
