Nickel & Nickel is devoted exclusively to producing 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinctive personality of each vineyard. Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente, the winery is based in Oakville, California, on the 42-acre John C. Sullenger vineyard property. Nickel & Nickel produces single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, but also makes single-vineyard Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel.
Bright, clear black cherry and blackberry aromas, accented by notes of toasty spice, open onto a palate layered with flavors of mixed berries, spice and earth. Elegant and balanced, with a rich backbone of oak, this concentrated vintage possesses the tremendous length, the layered flavor profile and incredible depth that is associated with this and other west Oakville vineyards. -Winery notes
