Beatty Ranch, at 1,800 feet above sea level, lies above the normal fog line on Howell Mountain. From a three-acre parcel that was the last pick for the winery, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon Beatty Ranch remains impressively fresh, with ripe cherries joined by hints of pine and/or rosemary, imparting a slightly medicinal quality. Medium to full-bodied on the palate, this is richly textural and silky in feel, with a long, softly dusty finish. Give it a few years in the cellar.
The Nickel & Nickel label was specifically created to showcase the beauty and strength of the magnificent Cabernet Sauvignon variety. This single vineyard example is no exception. The 23-acre State Ranch vineyard is located northeast of the town of Yountville and consists of both older and younger vines planted on exceptional well-draining rocky loam soils. Thanks to the excellent exposure of the vineyard, the vines receive maximum exposure to the sun throughout the day. This helps them ripen evenly and fully over the summer, ensuring the grapes are bursting with rich fruit flavours, ripe tannins, and plenty of colour compounds. In the glass, this wine has a deep, inky red hue and enticing aromas of succulent cassis, blackberry, ripe plum and dark cherry with undertones of cedar, cigar box spice, and dark chocolate. On the palate, there’s a generous full body, firm tannins, a well-rounded texture, and a powerful finish with plenty of plush dark fruit and subtle herbal notes.
