Best Cab from Nickel & Nickel yet?
Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the 2016 State Ranch Vineyard Yountville is a beautiful Cabernet from the folks at Far Niente. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
97 Points James Suckling: "Impressive aromas of blueberry and lavender with hints of rosemary. Full to medium body, solid core of fruit and a gorgeous finish. Compacted and refined. Better in 2019 but already fantastic. Best wine ever from here?"
Delicious new Chardonnay release from Far Niente's single vineyard Nickel & Nickel winery. Only 250 cases produced.
The Nickel & Nickel 2016 Truchard Vineyard Chardonnay offers flavors of peach, pear, grapefruit and banana, with citrus notes enhanced by the stone and mineral elements midpalate. Toasty flavors from the French oak harmonize with the exotic fruit providing a layered palate from start to finish.
Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the Branding Iron Vineyard is a beautiful Cabernet from the folks at Far Niente. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The elegantly balanced Nickel & Nickel 2015 Branding Iron Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon offers aromas of blackberry and raspberry fruits mixed with toasty cedar from the oak. These lush, ripe flavors carry through on the palate with hints of green olive and dried herb. The juiciness from the fruit continues through to a lingering finish on soft, coating tannins. This is a wine that can be easily be enjoyed upon release, but will also age beautifully with time in the bottle"
95+ Points Parker
Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the 2015 C. C. Ranch is a beautiful Cabernet from Rutherford 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
95+ Points Robert Parker: "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon C C Ranch Vineyard is deep garnet-purple in color with a nose of warm blackberries and blueberry compote with hints of cedar chest, mocha and baking spices. Medium to full-bodied, it is velvety and elegant with lovely perfume and great persistence."
The Nickel & Nickel 2015 Copper Streak Cabernet Sauvignon offers one of the richest textures of the vintage. Aromas of blackberry and cedar lend way to dark fruit flavors of berry and cassis which blend nicely with notes of chocolate, tobacco and herbs. The middle palate is dense with rich flavors, depth and complexity. This wine is beautifully focused now, yet will reward those with the patience to allow a few years in the cellar.
