97 Points - limited Best Cab from Nickel & Nickel yet? Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the 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 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."
