Winemaker Notes

The 2013 vintage was truly unique, producing wines that are exceedingly dark in color, rich in flavor and generously coating. The 2013 State Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon has a beautiful bouquet of dark fruits, violet, stone and toast. Generous plum and blueberry fruits, spice, mineral and espresso combine with a texture of mouthfilling complexity. This wine possess power and depth, with rich tannins that carry the fruit into a lengthy finish; this wine never seems to end.

Impressive aromas of blueberry and lavender with hints of rosemary. Full to medium body, solid core of fruit and a gorgeous finish. Compacted and refined. Better in 2019 but already fantastic. Best wine ever from here?

Can Napa Valley Cabernets be elegant or must they be powerful and extracted? The 2013 Nickel & Nickel State Ranch shows power without overtaking the palate, this is a pretty fine effort. Medium to deep ruby color; aromas are classic with dust, black currant and pencil lead, fine depth; medium bodied, frisky on the palate; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; pert, ripe fruit flavors, youthful and evolving; medium finish, refined tannins in the aftertaste. (Tasted: April 20, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

One of Napa Valley's most historic sub-appellations, Yountville spreads through some of the valley's ideal cooler sites and enjoys success with a handful of different and significant grape varieties.

Syrah competes strongly with Cabernet Sauvignon here for optimal vineyard real estate followed by Pinot noir, Pinot blanc and Sauvignon blanc.

This sub-AVA of Napa Valley is rich in the history that makes Napa Valley what it is today, and not just for red wines. Moët & Chandon entered the California winemaking business via Yountville in 1973 with the establishment Domaine Chandon. Their goal has always been to produce top quality méthode champenoise sparkling wines.

Christian Moueix, originally responsible for managing Chateau Petrus and La Fleur-Petrus in Pomerol, arrived in Yountville in the early 1980s. He formed a partnership with Rohin Lail and Marcia Smith, inheritors of Napanook vineyard from their father John Daniel of Inglenook in Rutherford. In 1995 Moueix became sole owner of Napanook and chose the name Dominus, which today produces some of Napa’s highest scoring, age-worthy Bordeaux Blends.

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.
