CC Ranch [“Carpy & Connolly”] is a famously gravelly site near Quintessa in Rutherford, and in 2015 we loved its fabulously earthy, loamy, mushroomy character, dusting ripe black cherries and cassis.The Wine Advocate loved its “warm blackberries and blueberry compote with hints of cedar chest, mocha and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, it is velvety and elegant with lovely perfume and great persistence.”
