Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2013 Rock Cairn Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon presents a captivating array of characters. This wine opens with plum, black cherry, herb and earth aromas. While this Cabernet Sauvignon offers incredible juicy fruits, it is the well-integrated tobacco leaf, bay leaf, anise and oak spice that make it compelling. Enhanced by a vibrant acidity, the texture of this wine is smooth and velvety, providing a long and juicy finish.
Vineyard Notes
Planted in 1984, Rock Cairn Vineyard lies near the southern edge of the Oakville appellation, east of Highway 29 and north of the town of Yountville. The 30-acre vineyard is named for the “cairns,” or piles of rocks, that were formed long ago when Indians traversed the hills and would place a rock on the pile as an offering for safe passage. The site is comprised of deep, gravelly loam with a western exposure, and the vines produce very concentrated fruit late in the season. Nickel & Nickel selects grapes from nine acres of the vineyard.
