The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon C C Ranch Vineyard is deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of warm blackberries and blueberry compote with hints of cedar chest, mocha and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, it is velvety and elegant with lovely perfume and great persistence. Rating: 95+
The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon C. C. Ranch is wonderfully dark, fleshy and alluring, with no hard edges and gorgeous, radiant fruit that expands effortlessly on the palate. This is an especially showy style. Super-ripe dark raspberry and red cherry fruit give the wine its allure, while silky tannins add softness. Sweet tobacco, leather and grilled herbs are some of the many notes that develop over time, adding further shades of nuance in this very complete and inviting Cabernet Sauvignon from Nickel & Nickel.
This has more of that dark fruit character, featuring blackberries, brambles, ivy, licorce, dark chocolate and pressed dried violets. Full body and lots of fruit and mouth-coating tannins, yet this remains driven and fresh up to the chewy finish. Drink in 2020.
An intensely grapey style, with currant and dark berry flavors that are fresh and vibrant, if presented in a tight, narrow frame. Best from 2019 through 2030.
The 2015 C.C. Ranch pushes the edge of ripeness yet retains the juiciness one expects from the Rutherford AVA. Concentrated red raspberry and cherry flavors blend beautifully with subtle notes of baking spice and dust. The oak is in harmony with the fruit, adding yet another dimension, while a balanced acidity livens the wine. Resolved but present tannins will allow this elegant Cabernet to cellar beautifully for many years to come.
