I Am On A "California Roll" This Weekend
With Robert Parkers Wine Advocate #209 coming out on Friday afternoon containing 1,400+ Napa Valley reviews I have had a LOT of homework to do this weekend. As many of you have seen already over the weekend, I have pumped out some pretty sexy offers on Louis Martini, Beringer Chardonnays, Beringer Private Reserve Cabernet, Blankiet and Staglin Cabernet.
Now it is Nickel and Nickel Cabernets, as they are clearly on a roll up and down the line with their 2010’s:
2010 Nickel and Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon John C Sullinger Vineyard Oakville
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger Vineyard comes from an Oakville site known for its deep clay and loamy soils. A textbook mid-Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, it offers plenty of black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of toasty oak, white chocolate and espresso. Full-bodied and rich, this definitive Napa Cabernet is still young, but it has a certain accessibility, and should drink nicely for 15-20 years...93+. " WA #209.
2010 Nickel and Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Hayne Vineyard
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Hayne Vineyard comes from a site that is better known for its Petite Sirah and Zinfandel made famous by Turley Cellars. This has always been a site that produces ripe wines, and you see that with this 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. Offering blackberry and jammy fruit flavors, it is a full-bodied, in-your-face, yet elegant and pure Cabernet that delivers lots of blue and black fruits in an All-American / All-Napa, first team sort of way. This beauty should drink well for two decades or more...94." WA #209.
2010 Nickel and Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon State Lane Ranch
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon State Ranch from Yountville boasts an impressive bouquet of chocolate and creme de cassis, and powerful, full-bodied flavors. It may be the most concentrated, dense and powerful effort in this portfolio. This blockbuster, full throttle (14.8% natural alcohol) wine should age effortlessly for two decades. I wonder if this designation has any kinship to the State Lane Vineyard owned by the Kapcsandy family?...94." WA #209.
I am waving these into my warehouse as quickly as I can get them in next week, as I am expecting the supplier to sell through these very quickly. These could be DELICIOUS additions to your cellar...or possibly even your Thanksgiving table in a few weeks.
Enjoy the rest of your Sunday.
All My Best,
