Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Branding Iron United States 2008
Branding Iron Vineyard lies in the western part of Oakville close to the base of theMayacamas Mountains. The vineyard is named for a branding iron, shaped like twoopposing wineglasses, that is owned by the proprietor. The vineyard is comprised ofwell-drained clay loam, and the vines are vertically trellised to maximize sunlight andopen the canopy. The warm climate of Oakville is perfect for slowly ripening thefruit, and outside of a few hot days each year, the fruit will often benefit from alonger hang time.
Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel is based on a philosophy of producing 100 percent varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinct personality of each vineyard. It is from some of the most coveted vineyards in the Napa and Sonoma valleys that the Nickel & Nickel wines are produced.
RiceSelect's creamy Arborio gets blended with sweet potato, coconut milk and vanilla to create this decadent cheesecake. Pairs well with Saunternes; a white dessert wine that has hints of coconut from aging in oak barrels.
