Cabernet Sauvignon Archives - 2 Hollywood Winos

Honig Vineyard & Winery, Rutherford, Napa Valley

Honig Vineyard & Winery is a family-owned vineyard and winery in Rutherford, Napa Valley, known for Sauvignon Blanc and Cabernet Sauvignon. As most of us know, Napa Cabernets can be very expensive. They are world renown and while Honig has an amazing $90 2012 Single Vineyard Cabernet, we are glad they offer a $40 2012 Cabernet […]

Ehlers Estate Cabernet Sauvignon “1886” 2008

Steve and I had a crazy August of work and travel but now we’re back! My birthday was on September 11th and I was looking forward to trying a special bottle for it. I chose the Ehlers Estate flagship “1886” Cabernet Sauvignon. We bought the bottle last year when we went to Napa with our friends […]

What to Drink?: Rodney Strong Cabernet Sauvignon versus J. Lohr Cabernet Sauvignon

We thought it would be fun to compare really popular brands of Cabernet Sauvignon sold at most local stores. We went to Smart & Final (we specifically chose a big box store since so many people buy wine from them) and chose two of the more popular Cab Sauvs on the shelf: Rodney Strong and […]

And thank you to those who have served and continue to serve today. We are so grateful. On Saturday of this Memorial Day weekend, we decided to check […]

The Mercantile Wine Bar, Hollywood, CA

It’s Sunday and Steve and I are ready to relax in the 90 degree LA weather. We looked around and decided to try The Mercantile Wine Bar in Hollywood, CA. And boy were we glad we did. First they have a huge, free parking lot in the heart of Hollywood. That’s nearly impossible to find. […]

2008 Surfrider Cabernet Sauvignon from Rosenthal in Malibu, CA

After a hike in Malibu, Steve and I stumbled upon the Rosenthal tasting room and being the winos that we are, we decided to stop in post-hike. Looking around at the casual tasting room, we didn’t think they’d mind as they seemed super cool and welcoming. Wine after a hike is always welcome (shhh! don’t […]

Value Wine: 2008 Trader Joe’s Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon

Recently, Jane and I found ourselves walking through the aisles of a local Trader Joe’s Market on our way to a dinner party. It started us thinking that perhaps we should explore some more affordable bottles for everyday wine consumption. We had a vague memory of a TJ’s bottle we bought years ago that was […]

2006 Rubicon Captain’s Reserve Cab Sauv

As our name suggests, we are two winos and how best to express that than by drinking a bottle of wine and telling you about it? We tend to be romantics – at least Steve accuses me of it – so you should expect our impressions to evoke a romantic love with the wine we […]
