2016 NICKEL & NICKEL C.C. RANCH CABERNET SAUVIGNON (RUTHERFORD)
Some wines exist where you can’t afford to wait for the scores to come out before securing yours, and this is one of them… The new 2016 CC Ranch Vineyard Cabernet from Rutherford is hauntingly deep and richly enchanting, with even more intensity than the 2015, which earned 95+ last year from Robert Parker. With no expense spared along with attention to every minute detail conjoined 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 C.C. Ranch Cabernet is my favorite and offers a dynamic combination of vivid wild berries, mixed chocolates, grandma’s spice cabinet, and notes of classic Rutherford Dust.
Created from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and kept in premium French oak barrels, this wine is showy, distinct and memorable. The winery was established in the late 1990’s by the partners 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. If you love beautiful Rutherford Cabernet, don’t miss this one…

Winery Notes: "The 2016 CC Ranch Cabernet opens with a harmonious blend of delicate floral and potpourri notes alongside aromas of ripe cherry, plum, and dried herbs. The entry is bright and lively, loaded with spicy red berryflavors and warm, seductive notes of tobacco leaf. The bright, lingering finish is both refreshing and youthful, while firm tannins suggest the wine will only grow more nuanced with extended aging."
