Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon State Ranch Yountville 2013

External Review by WineExpress.com:

Gil Nickel who founded Far Niente started Nickel & Nickel to produce extraordinary single vineyard Napa Valley Cabs. Each is a very low production wine from a unique sub-appellation in Napa Valley. This one comes from the State Ranch vineyard in Yountville, made famous by Beringer and now by Kapcsandy Estate. This wine, aged in French oak barrels for 16 months. James Suckling scored this 97 points saying "Impressive aromas of blueberry and lavender with hints of rosemary. Full to medium body, solid core of fruit and a gorgeous finish. Compacted and refined. Better in 2019 but already fantastic. Best wine ever from here?"
