Winemaker's Notes:

Multiple layers of ripe fruit blend nicely with an array of earth, herb, tobacco and char. This wine has an incredible texture, which is soft, yet thick, from front to finish. The French oak adds sweetness and cigar-like qualities, while the fruit persists on velvet tannins into a long, supple finish.

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.
