C.C. Ranch is planted in Rutherford, along the slope of a knoll west of the Silverado Trail. The vineyard grows classic Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon on well-drained, gravelly loam soil and receives a variety of exposures, depending on the block and location. The vines are well balanced
and the canopy is opened up to give good light exposure. Nickel & Nickel produces wine from 15
select acres of this 115-acre vineyard.
C.C. Ranch has a unique combination of floral and fruit. The plush black cherry flavors offer a nice
sweetness to this wine, enhanced by the floral characteristics that naturally come from the vineyard.
The distinctive “Rutherford Dust,” combined with the spice and toast from the oak, deepens the wine’s
flavor and complexity. Smooth and rich, this wine expands on the middle palate, and the soft tannins
that are associated with the Rutherford appellation melt away into a long, harmonious finish.
