Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Branding Iron United States 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

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.
