2020 Nickel & Nickel C.C. Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, 750ML
Notes from the Winemaker
A beautiful perfume of red plum and ripe raspberry lifted by dried sage and a whisper of spicy pepper invite you in for sip after sip. Abundant red fruit flavors – Bing cherry, raspberry, red plum – flow through the palate, with underpinnings of baking spice and toasted oak adding nuance and dimension. Tannins are supple and integrated, seamlessly carrying the flavors from entry to the finish.
Nickel & Nickel is devoted to 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines, focused on Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Its winemaking excellence is highlighted in its selection of the very best vineyard locations and unique soil compositions required to make superior single-vineyard wines. Each Nickel & Nickel wine is a celebration of place and reveals how vineyards only miles apart, but of the same grape varietal, yield wines of unique character and distinction.
Reviews and Accolades
94 Points/James Suckling
Very fine tannins with bright acidity yet soft at the same time. Redcurrants. Medium body. Polished and lightly savory. So pretty for a 2020. Drink or hold.
