Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Branding Iron 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2008 Branding Iron Cabernet Sauvignon has beautiful, ripe fruit flavors of plush berry and black cherry. Underlying hints of black tea and spice add interest, while the oak offers vanillin and toast. The most striking aspect of this wine is the thickness on the palate, which is a result of the ripe fruit and amazing, fine tannins. This depth of flavor is carried by the wine’s classic structure into a long, lasting finish. The tremendous length and layering of flavors is a quality that we associate with this and other west Oakville vineyards.

The 2008 Tench Cabernet Sauvignon displays bright boysenberry and blueberry fruits, which are special characteristics of this rocky terrain. Sweet vanillin from the French oak enhances the fruit and produces a beautiful middle palate. The fine tannins from this vintage add volume and carry those ripe fruit flavors into a lengthy finish.
