Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the Hayne Vineyard is a beautiful Cabernet from the folks at Far Niente. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
93+ Points Robert Parker: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Hayne Vineyard (100% Cabernet) gives up cassis, kirsch, plums and spice box with cigars and cedar plus hints of lilacs. The palate is medium to full-bodied, fresh and elegant with firm, grainy tannins and a soft-spoken intensity."
Hayne Vineyard is situated in St. Helena at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains and is well known for its single-vineyard wines from the site, especially from Turley Wine Cellars. The vines are small to moderate in size due to the gravelly, loam soils, and produce limited yields. The warm St. Helena temperatures are ideal for concentrated, jammy fruit. This vineyard tends to be picked at the beginning of harvest each year.

Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the 2016 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.
