2018 Nickel & Nickel 'Quarry Vineyard' Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford

$124.95
WS90

On the east side of Rutherford, Quarry Vineyard climbs the slopes above the Silverado Trail, haunted by a “ghost winery” that still stands adjacent. Three distinct blocks are harvested to build the layers of red fruit in this voluminous, richly textured Cabernet Sauvignon. You won’t have to dig far to find the treasure in this delicious bottle – skip the shovel and grab your corkscrew.

Delivers a lovely beam of cassis and cherry purée flavors laced with subtle juniper, sassafras and earth notes. Nicely focused, cedar-tinged finish has a streamlined feel. Drink now through 2027.
