Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Rock Cairn Cabernet Sauvignon opens with a fragrant plumand black cherry perfume, along with the subtlest hints of dried sage andportobello. The wine has layers of luscious black fruit flavors with firmtannins that envelop the entire palate and a refreshing brightness on thefinish. With its ripe fruit and beautiful tannin structure, this wine promisesto age gracefully for years to come.

COMMENTARY: It may be early, but the 2016 Nickel & Nickel Rock Cairn could very well make it into my top 10 wines of the year. I was blown away with its performance in tasting through the 2016 lineup of the Nickel & Nickel Cabs. TASTING NOTES: This wine shows outstanding clarity. Its aromas and flavors of cassis, mineral, and savory herbs deserves to be paired with a well-marbled, seared ribeye topped with minced shallots. (Tasted: January 11, 2019, San Francisco, CA)

Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district stretches across the center of Napa's valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This AVA is home to the legendary To Kalon Vineyard and Martha's Vineyard, as well as many powerhouse wineries including Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak, Robert Mondavi, Opus One, Far Niente and Groth.

The climate is generally warm and agreeable, resulting in year after year of favorable vintages. Summer days see a gentle tug of war between warmer inland air and the cool air coming in from the San Pablo Bay, creating an ideal environment to grow red varieties. Oakville's diverse soils, namely ancient sea bedrock, clay and gravel, are well-drained, and perfect for high-caliber viticulture.

Cabernet here is often bottled varietally but is also popular in Bordeaux Blends. Oakville wines are known for their silky, sensual textures, structured tannins, dark and brooding fruit and lovely aromatics. These age-worthy and prestigious wines are favored by collectors throughout the world.

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, Malbecand 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.
