Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Kelham Cabernet Sauvignon brings together a wonderful combination of fruit and earthiness to create a stylish wine. Berry and cassis are mixed with notes of cigar, green tea and earth. Many types of French oak barrels were used for this wine, offering spice, toast and char. The depth of flavor is enhanced by a velvety thickness, which expands into the bold and expressive structure that is classic Oakville.
My Notes:

About Nickel & Nickel:

Nickel & Nickel is devoted exclusively to producing 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinctive personality of each vineyard. Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente, the winery is based in Oakville, California, on the 42-acre John C. Sullenger vineyard property. Nickel & Nickel produces single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, but also makes single-vineyard Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel.
