Winemaker Notes

Made of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the deep garnet-purple colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Quicksilver Vineyard opens with cassis, black cherries, kirsch, and bay leaves with lavender and baking spices nuances. The palate is medium to full-bodied, elegant, fresh and vibrant with loads of spring in its step, finishing long.

JS 95
James Suckling
This Rutherford cabernet sauvignon has an array of ripe dark-plum aromas, laced with baking spices and subtle, meaty complexity. The palate carves a very succulent, lithe and flavorsome impression with abundant, ripe dark-plum flavor. Drink or hold.

WS 93
Wine Spectator
Features a brambly edge to the mix of winey red and black currant fruit, with touches of licorice snap, sweet tobacco, sassafras and savory throughout. Good energy ripples through the finish. Best from 2020 through 2030.

COMMENTARY: Balance is one of the reasons I like the Rutherford AVA appellation, and the 2016 Nickel & Nickel Quicksilver Vineyard Cabernet is all about that. TASTING NOTES: This wine is picture-perfect. Its aromas and flavors of red currants and sandalwood are racy and bright. Pair it with an oven-roasted game hen.

The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Quicksilver Vineyard is all Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford. As with the other single vineyards, it's saturated purple in color and has a complex, earthy bouquet of black cherries, damp earth, bloody blueberries, iron, and forest floor. This medium to full-bodied effort is very much in the style of the estate, yet has slightly more tannic grip as well as acidity. Give it 3-4 years and it should drink nicely for 15+.

Napa Valley, California

The Rutherford sub-region of Napa Valley centers on the town of Rutherford and covers some of Napa Valley’s finest vineyard real estate, spanning from the Mayacamas in the west, to the Vaca Mountains on the other side of the valley.

Inside of the Rutherford AVA, bordering the Mayacamas, is a stretch of uplands called the Rutherford Bench. (These bench lands technically run the length of Oakville as well). Mountain runoff creates deep, well-drained, alluvial soils on the bench, giving vine roots plenty of reason to permeate deep into the ground. The result is wine with great structure and complexity.

Rutherford Cabernet Sauvingons and Bordeaux Blends garner substantial attention for their enticing fragrances of dusty earth and dried herbs, broad and juicy mid-palates and lush and fine-grained tannins. The sub-appellation claims some of the valley’s most prized vineyards today, namely Caymus, Rubicon and Beckstoffer Georges III.

It is also home to Napa’s most influential and historic personalities. Thomas Rutherford, responsible for the appellation's name, made serious investments here in grape growing and wine production between the years of 1850 to 1880. Gustave Niebaum purchased a large swath of land and completed his winery in 1887, calling it “Inglenook.” Today this remains the oldest bonded winery in California. Georges Latour founded Beaulieu Vineyard in 1900, making it the oldest continuous winery in the state. Latour also hired the famous enologist, André Tchelistcheff, a man credited for single-handedly defining the modern Napa winemaking style.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbec and Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
