2019 Nickel & Nickel ‘State Ranch’ Cabernet Sauvignon


Nickel & Nickel began with an adventurous departure from a traditional estate model when it was founded in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente. Calling on its deep knowledge of Napa Valley’s diverse topography, Nickel & Nickel singles out outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon vineyards from across the region. Some are recognized stars from valley floor AVAs, including Oakville and Rutherford. Others are hidden diamonds, often in hard-to-farm, high-elevation locations like Howell Mountain. All grow exceptional Cabernet Sauvignon, but that Cabernet is expressed differently in each site.

94 Points Jeb Dunnuck
I loved the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon State Ranch. This Yountville beauty has a great nose of pure cassis and blackcurrant fruits as well textbook Cabernet notes of lead pencil shavings, chalky mineral, and tobacco. Medium to full-bodied, concentrated, and perfectly balanced, it has fine tannins and the class to evolve for 15 years or more.

94 points James Suckling
Stewed blackcurrants, cassis, smoked meat, toffee and walnuts on the nose. Full-bodied with fine, sleek tannins and fresh acidity. Succulent and polished with a juicy, flavorful finish. Drink from 2023.
