Grape: Cabernet Sauvignon
Tasting Notes: Raspberry, Blackberry, Chocolate, Baking Spices
Nickel & Nickel is devoted to 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines, focused on Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. The winery was established in the late 1990’s by the partners at Far Niente Winery. The C.C. Ranch is a top site in the Rutherford AVA.
This wine is medium to full-bodied, energetic, persistent, plush and supple, with firm, chewy tannins. Ripe raspberry, plum, red currant, blackberry, tobacco leaf, chocolate, and baking spices flavors are underscored by seductive spicy notes, coating the tongue while finishing long and fragrant. Match with a hearty red meat like lamb chops.
