Nickel & Nickel State Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Yountville|
|Brand||Nickel & Nickel|
There's a velvety silkiness to this 100% Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a lushness to the palate that will please aficionados of both Cabernet and Pinot Noir. Refined tannins stand out in subtle ways, as do high-toned cassis and blackberry. Though the wine displays a richness of oak and chocolate, the minerality truly shines here. This will cellar well through 2025.
Fresh and snappy, with tart, vibrant cherry and wild berry supported by dry, gripping tannins, it comes up hollow and thin midpalate on, more tannin than fruit. Drink now through 2027. 3,260 cases made.
