Nickel & Nickel Quicksilver Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016

$109.99

Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the 2016 Quicksilver Vineyard is a beautiful Rutherford Cabernet from the folks at Far Niente. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. The Quicksilver Vineyard lies on the western Rutherford bench, along the famous Bella Oaks Lane. The soils are predominantly well drained loams that produce vines of moderate size. These older vines were planted to the California sprawl system, with wider spacing and a divided canopy, giving great exposure to the fruit. Minimal irrigation is needed to obtain maximum fruit potential..
