Nickel & Nickel Cabernet State Ranch 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The long hang time this year offered nice flavor development in the 2010 State Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon, and this wine delivers a wonderful expression of bright berry fruits. The velvety texture carries flavors of raspberry and black cherry, while the toasty oak adds spice. The soft, thick palate is warm and inviting, and the rich, defined tannins create a solid backbone, carrying the flavors to an extremely long finish." Winery notes

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 Robert Parker scored it 94 points saying "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon State Ranch from Yountville boasts an impressive bouquet of chocolate and creme de cassis, and powerful, full-bodied flavors. It may be the most concentrated, dense and powerful effort in this portfolio. This blockbuster, full throttle (14.8% natural alcohol) wine should age effortlessly for two decades. I wonder if this designation has any kinship to the State Lane Vineyard owned by the Kapcsandy family?"
