Winemaker's Notes:

Bold and impressive, this 100% Cabernet strikingly resembles hillside fruit, although the vineyard is fairly flat. The color is a beautiful shade of garnet with aromas of cassis, tea and herb. Currant, tobacco and dark chocolate aromas, coupled with sweet, toasty oak are uplifted by the firm, yet rich tannins that are evident from start to finish. This tight core of fruit surrounded by fleshy tannins is the signature of the vineyard.

Nickel & Nickel produces single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, but also makes single-vineyard Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel.
