Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2016 Rock Cairn Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a fragrant plum and black cherry perfume, along with the subtlest hints of dried sage and portobello. The wine has layers of luscious black fruit flavors with firm tannins that envelop the entire palate and a refreshing brightness on the finish. With its ripe fruit and beautiful tannin structure, this wine promises to age gracefully for years to come.
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.
