Winemaker's Notes:

Martin Stelling Cabernet Sauvignon has layers of blackberry, black cherry and cassis, which harmonize with undertones of chocolate and spice. This wine is fleshy with a dark, dense core that expands on the middle palate. The tannins are supple and rich and, combined with the oak, highlight the beautiful fruit medley in a lingering 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.
