Nickel & Nickel Rock Cairn Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015

$99.99

Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the 2015 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.
