Nickel & Nickel Rock Cairn Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

$99.99

Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the 2012 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.

Amazing nose. Dark ruby red. Red licorice meets dense dark chocolate and bing cherry. Cedar box and tobacco spills in with time. Lovely mid-palette finish.
