Nickel & Nickel, "Quick Silver" Cabernet Sauvignon, 2014

105.00

Nickel & Nickel winery, located in Oakville, Napa Valley, is dedicated exclusively to producing 100 percent varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinct personality of each vineyard. Established by the partners of Far Niente in 1997, Nickel & Nickel is focused on producing single-vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from the appellation’s most significant AVAs. A small collection of single-vineyard Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah complements the portfolio of Cabs. Every aspect of a vineyard must meet the estate’s exacting standards, including the soil, rootstock, clonal selection, exposure and farming practices. Their viticulture team farms with precision, based on what is required for each site to achieve the purest expression of its place. The process reveals how vineyards that are in some cases less than a mile apart and growing the same varietal, may produce wines of remarkably different character. The 43-acre Tench Vineyard is situated on the eastern edge of Oakville along the Silverado Trail. The 2014 Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon sees 55% new oak and 45% second use. It exudes dark berry flavors with a hint of fresh blueberry, which defines this special site. A mouthwatering entry coats the palate, while the flavor and texture are complemented by restrained oak. Ultimately, the tannins dissolve, leaving an impression of resolution and completeness.
