PRODUCT OVERVIEW/REVIEW:
Nickel & Nickel is part of a family of wineries that includes the iconic Far Niente property, but don’t think for a minute that it lives in the shadows of its illustrious sister. It has earned a reputation as a top-notch producer, thanks to its unwavering commitment to the craftsmanship of single-vineyard mono-varietals sourced from Napa’s most prestigious and distinctive AVAs.

C.C. Ranch is located in Napa’s Rutherford AVA, which is known for terroir that is highly compatible with Cabernet Sauvignon thanks to its well-drained soil of gravel, loam and sand with volcanic deposits and marine sediments. The vineyard, planted along the slope of a knoll west of the Silverado Trail, receives a variety of exposures, depending on the block and location. The vines are well-balanced and the canopy is opened up to give good light exposure.*

The 2018 growing season kicked off in late February and eased into a mild spring that brought extended flowering and uniform clusters throughout the vineyard. Summer continued this even trend, with consistent temperatures allowing fruit to have extended hang time. With no heat spikes, every cluster had the opportunity to achieve perfect phenolic maturity.*

The 2018 C.C. Ranch  Cabernet Sauvignon is all about finesse, with lifted plum and floral aromatics opening onto a beautifully plush palate. Ripe raspberry and plum flavors are underscored by seductive spicy notes, with soft tannins gently supporting the wine from entry to completion. With fruit that grows brighter and fresher as the wine progresses to the finish, this Rutherford Cabernet may be one of the most approachable and mouthwatering cuvées of the vintage.

94 points, Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate:
“The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon C.C. Ranch is made from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and was aged in French oak, 48% new, for 18 months. With a deep garnet-purple color, it comes skipping out of the glass with bright, cheery scents of ripe black cherries, mulberries and crushed black currants with suggestions of chocolate box, menthol, lavender and plum preserves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely coated with crunchy black berry layers, supported by fine-grained tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long and fragrant.” (11/30/20)
