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.
Delicious new Chardonnay release from Far Niente's single vineyard Nickel & Nickel winery. Only 250 cases produced.
The 2014 Truchard 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.

94 Points Robert Parker: "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger Vineyard shows gorgeous blueberry and blackberry fruit, white owers, sweet tannins and a full bodied opulence. There is plenty of structure behind all the fruit, and the wine is a 25-year wine for sure."
The home vineyard of Nickel & Nickel, Sullenger Vineyard is situated behind the winery in the heart of Oakville and just next to Opus One! It is named for John C. Sullenger, who settled the farmstead in the 1880’s. The vineyard’s 30 acres of clay loam soil are planted exclusively to Cabernet Sauvignon.
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"
