Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2013 vintage was truly unique, producing wines that are exceedingly dark in color, rich in flavor and generously coating. The 2013 State Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon has a beautiful bouquet of dark fruits, violet, stone and toast. Generous plum and blueberry fruits, spice, mineral and espresso combine with a texture of mouthfilling complexity. This wine possess power and depth, with rich tannins that carry the fruit into a lengthy finish; this wine never seems to end.
Vineyard Notes
State Ranch is located northeast of the town of Yountville. The 23-acre vineyard is divided into two parcels by State Lane Road and consists of both older and younger vines. Many excellent wines are produced from this area, in part due to the rocky, loam soil which has excellent drainage throughout the year. The vines, as well as the clusters, are moderate in size and the vineyard gets full sun throughout the day. As the young vines mature, we will be harvesting many different clones to make the final wine. Nickel & Nickel selects fruit from 11 acres of the vineyard.
