Nickel & Nickel State Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 97js 2013

Winemaker's Notes:

97 Points, James Suckling: "Impressive aromas of blueberries and lavender with hints of rosemary. Full to medium body, a solid core of fruit and a gorgeous finish. Compacted and refined. Better in 2019 but already fantastic. Best wine ever from here?" 12/16 94+ Points, Antonio Galloni, Vinous: "A dark, brooding wine, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon State Ranch offers up a compelling mix of iron, smoke, black cherry, plum, licorice and new leather, all supported by a firm spine of tannin. Sumptuous yet also quite tannic and in need of time, the State Ranch is another compelling wine from Nickel & Nickel. Stylistically, it is a bit more virile and imposing than some of the other wines, but every bit as attractive." 10/15

Nickel & Nickel:
Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel is based on a philosophy of producing 100 percent varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinct personality of each vineyard. It is from some of the most coveted vineyards in the Napa and Sonoma valleys that the Nickel & Nickel wines are produced.
