Nickel & Nickel State Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2013


SKU 04343


This wine bursts with flavors of mixed berries and black cherry liqueur. A slight mineral component underlies the fruit, while a solid core of tannin adds weight and backbone. This is a bold wine that will age for many years in your cellar.

Wine EnthusiastFrom one of the cooler sites sourced by the producer, this wine is remarkably rich and foreboding, sultry in chalky tannin and lingering blueberry and blackberry notes. Deeply satisfying and complex, it's structured and firm, with a sizable presence of toasty oak and a jolt of dark-roast coffee at the end.

Wine SpectatorExtracted and a bit chunky, with a savory edge to the earthy blackberry and wild berry flavors, ending with firm, dry tannins and dried herb and underbrush details. Drink now. 2,678 cases made.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon State Ranch (14.9%) is from the Yountville sector and shows nice red and blackcurrant fruit, spice box, earth, graphite, and a long, rich, concentrated finish. Toasty oak is present, but the wine is structured and in need of a good 4-5 years of cellaring. Drink it over the following 25 years.
