The 2015 C.C. Ranch pushes the edge of ripeness yet retains the juiciness one expects from the Rutherford AVA. Concentrated red raspberry and cherry flavors blend beautifully with subtle notes of baking spice and dust. The oak is in harmony with the fruit, adding yet another dimension, while a balanced acidity livens the wine. Resolved but present tannins will allow this elegant Cabernet to cellar beautifully for many years to come.

Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon C C Ranch Vineyard is deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of 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.

Wine EnthusiastFrom a site on the eastern edges of the appellation, this wine offers robust aromas of pencil shavings, cedar and dried herb. Black peppercorn, vanilla and black currant flavors make for a savory and fruity palate that is supported by a grip of tannins. Enjoy 2025-2030.

Wine SpectatorAn intensely grapey style, with currant and dark berry flavors that are fresh and vibrant, if presented in a tight, narrow frame. Best from 2019 through 2030. 2,462 cases made.
