Winemaker's Notes

"A beautiful Howell Mountain Cab that shows its terroir in the firm, rich tannic structure. And what gorgeous tannins they are, so refined and expressive. The fruit is perfectly ripe, suggesting currants, blackberries, red and black cherries, licorice and a hint of milk chocolate. Rewarding now, and should hold and improve for at least a decade."
Wine Enthusiast

Vogt Vineyard is situated atop Howell Mountain, along the northeast edge of the Napa Valley. The 15-acre vineyard reaches from a high elevation with shallow, rocky soils, down to a lower bowl of deeper loam. The surprisingly warm climate, combined with the vineyard's steep, southeast exposure, produces a dense and structured wine, typical of hillside Cabernet Sauvignon.

The 2005 Vogt Cabernet Sauvignon is an incredible wine. The aromas of jammy fruit and floral notes are dark and intense. The palate offers sweet, rich flavors of blackberry and cassis mixed with floral and spice. Incredibly concentrated, this wine is powerful, yet soft, with firm, polished tannins.

I usually decant but this was an afterthought, and even though I opened and poured it immediately it was still soft (though it could be dryer) and flavorful, with a beautiful bouquet. The finish was adequate. I had it for desert with a chocolate mousse cake and Bluebell Homeade Vanilla ice cream. The Nickel & Nickel wines are rare to find in Far West Texas so I am always pleased to be able to get one, I am never disappointed. Wish I could get a Far Niente Cab or Chard here, but this is close enough.

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
