Best Cab from Nickel & Nickel yet?
Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the 2016 State Ranch Vineyard Yountville is a beautiful Cabernet from the folks at Far Niente. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
92 Points Robert Parker:"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2017 Cabernet Sauvignon State Ranch gives up chocolate-covered cherries, wild blueberries and warm cassis scents with touches of violets, star anise, mossy bark and crushed rocks. Medium to full-bodied, the palate offers a good amount of juicy fruit with soft, well played tannins and an earthy finish."
94 Points James Suckling: "This has a very strong blue-fruit character with a softer, smoothly rendered palate texture that offers real drinkability and attractive, appealing style. Fresh and fleshy through the finish. Drink or hold."
