Juicy with black cherry and tobacco notes, silky tannins and a voluminous midpalate, this extraordinary vintage reminds us exactly why we’ve been making Cabernet from this gorgeous, gravelly Rutherford vineyard for more than 17 years. Absolute elegance from start to finish.
C.C. Ranch is planted in Rutherford, along the slope of a knoll west of the Silverado Trail. The vineyard grows classic Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon on well-drained, gravelly loam soil and receives a variety of exposures, depending on the block and location. The vines are well balanced and the canopy is opened up to give good light exposure. Nickel & Nickel produces wine from 15 select acres of this 115-acre vineyard.
