Winemaker's Notes:

This 2006 Vogt Cabernet Sauvignon was made in both open-and closed-top tanks, which produced a wine with great concentration. The dark fruit flavors of berry and cassis are intensified by some natural floral and spice nuances. The palate is rich and coating with an intensity that comes from low-production, hillside fruit. Toasty oak integrates well with the firm yet polished tannins that, although approachable now, will resolve with some time in the bottle.

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.
