Nickel & Nickel Rutherford C.C. Ranch Cabernet 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

The availability of this product is limited and subject to change.<br/><br/>Wine Advocate Review<br/>Rated 91<br/>The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon C. C. Ranch is a relatively big Cabernet with 14.9% alcohol compared to the 14.8% of the Element 28 and the 14.3% of Dragonfly. The wine has a dense ruby/purple color, sweet tannin, lush concentrated fruit, a medium to full body and is probably slightly more evolved and fuller than its two predecessors. This wine is another 21-25-year effort from Nickel & Nickel.<br/><br/>Wine Tasting Notes<br/>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.
