Nickel & Nickel C.C. Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
The 2011 C.C. Ranch has some of the brightest fruit from the entire vintage. Aromas of red fruit lead to juicy cherry and berry flavors, harmonized with the earthiness from the Rutherford area and a slight floral note. The oak chosen for this vineyard offers a lot of vanilla and spice, rounding out the jammy fruit impressions. The texture is soft and silky, readily approachable, with gentle tannins that make this wine desirable upon release.
Nickel & Nickel is devoted exclusively to producing 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinctive personality of each vineyard. Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente, the winery is based in Oakville, California, on the 42-acre John C. Sullenger vineyard property. Nickel & Nickel produces single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, but also makes single-vineyard Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel.
