Planted in 1984, Rock Cairn lies near the southern edge of the Oakville appellation, east of Highway 29 and north of the town of Yountville. The 30-acre vineyard is named for the “cairns” or piles of rocks that were formed long ago when Native Americans traversed the hills and would place a rock on the pile as an offering for safe passage. The site is comprised of deep gravelly loam with a western exposure, and the vines produce very concentrated fruit late in the season. Nickel & Nickel selects grapes from nine acres of the vineyard.

The 2010 Rock Cairn Cabernet Sauvignon again delivers those unique flavors that are this vineyard’s signature. Black cherry fruit combine with dried herb and briary notes creating an exotic earthiness. The French oak offers both spice and char, giving the wine a supple mouthfeel. Smooth tannins complement the fruit and carry the flavors from start to finish.
