Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Rock Cairn 2007
The 2007 Rock Cairn Cabernet Sauvignon combines deep and ripe black cherry flavors with briary and black tea notes that have always defined the distinctive character of this vineyard. The roundness of the entry is supported by a nice core of tannin that gives hints of its ability to improve and develop over a long period. The structure of the wine carries to a finish where the fruit and earthy notes meld into a classically long finish.
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.
