Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A wine of great distinction and elegance, the 2014 Rock Cairn Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon carries concentrated aromas of cherry and geranium. Black cherry and plum mingle with savory notes of dried leaves, green olive and succulent herbs to offer an exotic profile. Velvety and approachable, well-integrated tannins carry these flavors into a gentle, lingering 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.
