Winemaker's Notes:

Big, ripe and full bodied, exemplary of the 2008 vintage. Velvety texture, layered finish. Note of cassis and blueberry, with hints of dry herbs and sweet oak.

About The Vineyard House:

The Vineyard House (TVH) is an exceptional and rare Cabernet Sauvignon created by proprietor Jeremy Nickel as a tribute to his late father Gil Nickel, founder of three of Napa’s most acclaimed wineries: Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel, and Dolce.

TVH gets its name from a charming little farmhouse situated in a picturesque valley in Oakville, California. Known as The Vineyard House, the home was built in 1853 by William Baldridge, one of Napa's most prominent citizens in the 19th century. It was bestowed to Jeremy by Gil when he passed away in 2003.

TVH has received great reviews from wine publications and master sommeliers. Jeremy is proud to continue the family tradition of great winemaking. Here's to the things we do in our lives that would make our fathers proud!
