A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2008 Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Quarry vineyard 750ml
Really tannic now, with a mouth-numbing astringency that accentuates the dryness and makes the mouthfeel rather rasping. However, There s no question about the depth of flavor. This 100% Cabernet is vast in sweet blackberries and cassis, with an earthy undertone of herbs and minerality. Cellar Selection.
