Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the 2013 Rock Cairn Vineyard is a beautiful Cabernet from the folks at Far Niente. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
Planted in 1984, Rock Cairn Vineyard lies near the southern edge of the Oakville appellation, east of Highway 29 and north of the town of Yountville. The 30-acre vineyard is named for the "cairns," or piles of rocks, that were formed long ago when Indians traversed the hills and would place a rock on the pile as an offering for safe passage. The site is comprised of deep, gravelly loam with a western exposure, and the vines produce very concentrated fruit late in the season. Nickel & Nickel selects grapes from nine acres of the vineyard.

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 2014 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"
Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the 2012 Copper Streak Vineyard is a beautiful Cabernet from a vineyard next to Shafer! 100% Cabernet Sauvignon.
The Nickel & Nickel 2013 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.
