Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvingon Napa Valley Rock Cairn 2008
93 points Antonio Galloni (Wine Advocate): ...plush, dark fruit and open, inviting personality. The balance of fruit and tannins is exceptional here, and renders the wine immensely pleasing... A voluptuous, sexy finish rounds things out in style... more feminine, graceful... Anticipated maturity: 2012-2024. (Dec 2011)
