Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Branding Iron Napa Valley 2010

External Review:

Cabernet is the ripest and sweetest of the winery s 2008 offerings, but it still shows the tannins that are Nickel & Nickel s mark. The vineyard is in west Oakville, and offers that region s superbly lush, delicious blackberry, blueberry and cherry flavors. Those tannins, while firm, are sweetly ripe, giving the wine an oxymoronic soft toughness. Rated 90+

WA 93pts Winemaker Notes - The 2007 Branding Iron Cabernet Sauvignon displays forward bright, clear and ripe black cherry aromas. There is a sense of juiciness to the wine upon entry. The softness is carried by the wine s classic structure as it continues to gain in presence and depth while moving back on the palate. The tremendous length and layering of flavors is a quality that we associate with this and other west Oakville vineyards.
