2019 Nickel & Nickel DeCarle Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford
Prepare your palate for the dark wild berry notes, pops of clove and dusty earth accents of this expansive Cabernet Sauvignon from the Rutherford Bench.
Polished and approachable, the 2018 vintage offers an alluring floral-berry perfume and pops of dark, wild berry and clove flavors. There’s serious volume on the palate, supported by firm tannins and dusty-earth accents that are hallmarks of the Rutherford Bench. Balanced acidity lifts the finish while subtle notes of clove and baking spice linger with each sip.
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.
