Nickel & Nickel State Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Brand||Nickel & Nickel|
Wine EnthusiastCellar Selection. A 100% varietal wine from the cooler end of the valley, this powerful wine offers tight barrel integration and grippy tannins. Soft, rounded layers of red cherry and cassis add to a lushness of fruit seasoned by savory clove. Enjoy 2025-2035.
Wine AdvocateSporting a deep garnet-purple color and nose of cedar, baked blackberries and black cherry preserves with hints of menthol and violets, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon State Ranch is medium-bodied, elegant and fine, with just enough fruit, soft tannins and lovely freshness.
Wine Spectator Aromas of mocha, dried herb and cedary oak hold the upper hand on a tight core of chewy dark berry flavors. Firms and turns tannic on the finish, so this is best to cellar. Best from 2020 through 2030. 1,702 cases made.
