Cellar for up to 20 years. Decant 1 hour before serving.

The Nickel & Nickel label was created to showcase the beauty and strength of the magnificent Cabernet Sauvignon variety, and this single vineyard example is no exception. The 23-acre State Ranch vineyard is situated to the northeast of the town of Yountville and consists of both older and younger vines planted on exceptional well-draining rocky loam soils.

The excellent exposure of the vineyard means that the vines get maximum exposure to the sun throughout the day which helps them ripen evenly and fully over the summer. This ensures the grapes are bursting with rich fruit flavours, ripe tannins, and plenty of colour compounds.

In the glass you’ll immediately notice the deep, inky red hue and enticing aromas of succulent cassis, blackberry, ripe plum and dark cherry with undertones of cedar, cigar box spice, and dark chocolate. On the palate there’s a generous full body, firm tannins, a well-rounded texture, and a powerful finish with plenty of plush dark fruit and subtle herbal notes. Great pairings for this punchy Cabernet include roast beef, hearty game dishes like venison and wild boar, a prime sirloin steak, and a smoky barbecued rack of ribs.
