2018 Nickel & Nickel DeCarle Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford Etched CONGRATULATIONS
A wine to linger over, this brand new Rutherford Cabernet brings juicy berry fruits, polished tannins and savory-dusty accents to the table. In other words, all the traits we love about this Napa Valley region.
Beautifully balanced dark red and blue fruit aromas accented by subtle mineral notes create immediate intrigue in this brand new Cabernet Sauvignon. Elegant Rutherford dust presents itself on the palate alongside juicy berry and black cherry fruits. Tannins are polished and supple and lead to a graceful finish.
DeCarle Vineyard is planted on the west side of Rutherford, in the dusty soils for which the area is known. This Cabernet Sauvignon offers a silky palate that complements the wine’s juicy berry and black cherry flavors and finishes with a subtle minerality.
