Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford C. C. Ranch 2008
The C.C. Ranch has a unique combination of floral and fruit. The plush black cherry flavors offer a nice sweetness to this wine, enhanced by the floral characteristics that naturally come from the vineyard. The distinctive "Rutherford Dust," combined with the spice and toast from the oak, deepens the wine's flavor and complexity. Smooth and rich, this wine expands on the middle palate, and the soft tannins that are associated with the Rutherford appellation melt away into a long, harmonious finish.
Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel is based on a philosophy of producing 100 percent varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinct personality of each vineyard. It is from some of the most coveted vineyards in the Napa and Sonoma valleys that the Nickel & Nickel wines are produced.
External Reviews for Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford C. C. Ranch
Offers a blast of sweet red cherry candy flavor, accented with new oak notes of buttered toast and caramel. There s no question this 100% Cabernet is delicious, but it s also fiercely tannic. Makes the gums quiver. Should develop in the bottle over the next seven years. Cellar Selection. Rated 90+
