COMMENTARY: The 2019 Nickel & Nickel C.C. Ranch Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is bright and active on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of blackcurrants and a suggestion of oak. Try it with a lightly grilled fillet mignon.
The 2019 vintage of C.C. Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon opens with aromas of plum and boysenberry, complemented by floral-herbal notes to create a nose that is layered and intriguing. A creamy mouthfeel, this wine is both generous and giving on the palate with a texture that demonstrates immense weight and depth. Ripe raspberry and plum flavors are underscored by seductive spicy notes, with soft tannins gently supporting the wine from entry to completion.
