Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2011 C.C. Ranch has some of the brightest fruit from the entire vintage. Aromas of red fruit lead to juicy cherry and berry flavors, harmonized with the earthiness from the Rutherford area and a slight floral note. The oak chosen for this vineyard offers a lot of vanilla and spice, rounding out the jammy fruit impressions. The texture is soft and silky, readily approachable, with gentle tannins that make this wine desirable upon release.
Vineyard Notes
C.C. Ranch is planted in Rutherford, along the slope of a knoll west of the Silverado Trail. The vineyard grows classic Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon on well-drained, gravelly loam soil and receives a variety of exposures, depending on the block and location. The vines are well balanced and the canopy is opened up to give good light exposure. Nickel & Nickel produces wine from 15 select acres of this 115-acre vineyard.
