Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The return of a Howell Mountain wine to Nickel & Nickel has long been awaited and the debut of the 2012 Nickel & Nickel Beatty Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon is sure to please. This wine offers aromas of cassis, blackberry, green olive, pepper and tar. The earthy and fruity notes are reflected on the palate and harmonize into one juicy package of flavor with the natural intensity of the Howell Mountain area. The texture of this wine is big, yet inviting, and the tannins are rich, not unyielding. This is a wine that is the perfect complement with food and can easily age for the next 15 years.
Vineyard Notes
Located atop Howell Mountain, Beatty Ranch typically gets to enjoy the warmth of the sun when summer fog lines the valley floor. While the fruit ripens easily, we must wait for mature tannins to emerge. The red, rocky soils are ideal to produce moderate-sized vines, and this vineyard is comprised of four different clones that each provide a unique flavor profile to the overall wine.
