Item Description

Enjoy this duet of fine wines from Nickel & Nickel Wineyard.

Since 1997, Nickel & Nickel has 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.

About the 2016 Merlot: Bright red fruits, candied blueberry, Santa Rosa plum and menthol aromas all blend together to intoxicate the nose as the 2016 Harris Vineyard Merlot wafts from the glass. On the palate, a juicy and fruity entry is supported by chewy tannins and a balancing acidity, creating lush layers that coat the tongue and produce a soft, elegant finish.

About the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon: A classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with beautiful aromas of sage, cedar, black olive and forest floor, mixed with briary notes of blueberry and spicy black fruits. With ample intensity of fruit on entry, the 2016 Quarry possesses moderate tannins that are layered and elegant. Subtle herbaceous notes mixed with oak come through on the back half of the palate, reminiscent of delectable baking spices, such as vanilla, clove and brioche. The resulting wine creates a lasting impression with its graceful finish.
