I was very surprised with this wine, was recommend from a friend and I would recommend it to another. Very smooth deep tannin palet, huge nose with smoke and dirt. Classic good Napa Cab, Would rate it 93/100

The Rock Cairn vineyard that Nickel and Nickel sources this Cabernet from lies on the southern end of the Oakville appellation, just east of Highway 29. Bright, forward fruit character is paired with plenty of toasty oak.

Classic Nickel & Nickel Cabernet, bone dry and super tannic. Hits the mouth hard with astringency that effectively masks the ripe blackberry fruit. Half new oak adds a toasty richness, but also some hard wood tannins. Made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Rated 90+

Wine Tasting NotesThis has got to be one of the best Rock Cairn wines that we have made to date. The concentration of this wine has a rich, coating quality beyond compare. Rooted in the famous loam soils of Oakville, Rock Cairn is a richly structured and powerful wine, showing ripe aromas and flavors of cassis, black cherry and anise. Notes of plum, cherry, olive and mineral emerge, giving depth to the texture, while the oak supports and expands the middle palate, and the mature tannins give length to the finish.

Complex deftly balanced and well-focused on a core of currant green olive sage and cedary tobacco notes the mix of earthy-minerally flavors on the finish adds dimension... Wine Spectator.
