Critical Acclaim

W&S 92
Wine & Spirits

Showing the cool tone of cabernet grown under the influence of the San Pablo Bay, this is a wine of firm cherry richness and muscular tannin. There's a gravelly, soil character to the tannin and tart freshness to the fruit. Give this several years to mellow, then decant for roast lamb.

RP 90
The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon State Ranch is from Yountville, a sector that is becoming populated with such high quality wineries as Cliff Lede and Kapcsandy. This deep ruby/purple effort is not so much austere as it is more narrowly constructed than its siblings. There is a lot going on in this outstanding Cabernet, but it is the least expressive of all these Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignons. It reveals some minerality along with white chocolate and black currant characteristics, but the structure dominates at present. Forget this wine for 3-4 years and drink it over the following 20 years.

WS 90
Wine Spectator

Tightly wound, full-bodied and intense, with a firm mix of loamy earth, dried black fruits, dried currant, mineral, sage and graphite. A pretty touch of blueberry peeks through at the end. Decant. Best from 2012 through 2021.
