2018 Nickel & Nickel "C.C. Ranch" Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1499603 95 points Vinous

Outer quote mark The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon C.C. Ranch is a wine of real breadth and dimension. All of the natural power of Rutherford comes through in a Cabernet that is impressive from the very first taste. Black cherry, dark chocolate, licorice, cloves and scorched earth all open in the glass. Sumptuous, bold and powerful, the 2018 C.C. Ranch is superb in this tasting. (AG) Inner quote mark (3/2021)

94 points James Suckling

Outer quote mark Blackcurrant, black-olive and lavender aromas follow through to a full body with firm, chewy tannins that need time to soften and come together. Rather tannic now. Inner quote mark (12/2020)

94 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark With a deep garnet-purple color, it comes skipping out of the glass with bright, cheery scents of ripe black cherries, mulberries and crushed black currants with suggestions of chocolate box, menthol, lavender and plum preserves. Medium to full-bodied, the palate is completely coated with crunchy black berry layers, supported by fine-grained tannins and a lively backbone, finishing long and fragrant. (LPB) Inner quote mark (11/2020)

92 points Jeb Dunnuck

Outer quote mark All Rutherford Cabernet, the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon C.C. Ranch offers up a juicy, unevolved bouquet of mulberries, blueberries, sappy green herbs, graphite, and a touch of earth. This carries to a medium to full-bodied, concentrated 2018 with good purity, present yet integrated tannins, and outstanding length. It's a little rough around the edges at the moment, but it's going to come together nicely for 2-4 years of bottle age and evolve for 15 years or so. 92+ Inner quote mark (1/2021)

K&L Notes

Nickel & Nickel is the project of the owners of Far Niente, which produces exclusively single-vineyard wines from the best sites in Napa Valley. The C.C. Ranch is a top site in the Rutherford AVA. Winery notes: "C.C. Ranch is planted on a fine, well-drained, gravelly loam soil made up of a combination of the Bale, Cole and Yolo soil series. The soil in Nickel & Nickel’s blocks is slightly sloped toward the west, and is a bit rocky, adding to the site’s drainage. Notes of bright cherry, raspberry and dried herbs waft from the glass with this classic Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon. The entry is bright and elegant, with seductive flavors of red fruit, tobacco leaf and baking spices coating the tongue. A delicate minerality on the palate creates a finish that lingers well after the last sip."
