2015 NICKEL & NICKEL C.C. RANCH CABERNET SAUVIGNON (RUTHERFORD)
Generous… Moving… Deeply Enchanting… These are all fitting descriptors for Nickel & Nickel’s C.C. Ranch Cabernet from Napa Valley’s prized Rutherford AVA. The winery was established in the late 1990’s by the parters at Far Niente Winery with a philosophy of producing 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines. The property was thoughtfully restored from an 1800’s farmstead and lying beneath the farmstead is a 30,000 sq. ft. subterranean barrel room, where wine can gently be moved from tank to barrel through the winery’s custom-formed hollow columns. With no expense spared along with attention to every minute detail combined with access to some of Napa Valley’s best vineyard sources, Nickel & Nickel is producing a bevy of classic Cabernet Sauvignons that are full of charm and worth seeking out.
Their 2015 C. C. Ranch Cabernet offers a dynamic combination of vivid berries, enchanting spices, chocolates and notes of classic Rutherford Dust. Crated from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and kept in premium French oak barrels, this wine is showy, distinct and memorable. The first thing I wrote down after tasting it was WOW!, underlined twice. If you’re passing through Yountville, come by the shop for a taste… You’ll be glad you did.

From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon C C Ranch Vineyard is deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of warm blackberries and blueberry compote with hints of cedar chest, mocha and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, it is velvety and elegant with lovely perfume and great persistence.” 95+ Points
From Wine Enthusiast, “From a site on the eastern edges of the appellation, this wine offers robust aromas of pencil shavings, cedar and dried herb. Black peppercorn, vanilla and black currant flavors make for a savory and fruity palate that is supported by a grip of tannins. Enjoy 2025–2030.” 94 Points, Cellar Selection
From Vinous, “The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon C. C. Ranch is wonderfully dark, fleshy and alluring, with no hard edges and gorgeous, radiant fruit that expands effortlessly on the palate. This is an especially showy style. Super-ripe dark raspberry and red cherry fruit give the wine its allure, while silky tannins add softness. Sweet tobacco, leather and grilled herbs are some of the many notes that develop over time, adding further shades of nuance in this very complete and inviting Cabernet Sauvignon from Nickel & Nickel.” 94 Points
