Nickel & Nickel State Ranch Yountville Cabernet Sauvignon 2017

$124.95

97 Points - limited                     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."

Tobacco and oak on nose. Full bodied, deep, dark, and smooth. Did not decNt but drank slowly over 2+ hours in very large Cab glasses. Evolved nicely.

Bright red fruit flavors (not jammy) with hints of dried herbs, tobacco and smoke. Minerals on the very long finish. Amazingly soft for such a young wine.
