Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District Copper Streak 2005
Notes on the Nickel & Nickel Copper Streak Cabernet Sauvignon Stags Leap District 2005 : NVWE NOTES: This beautiful new bottling has wonderfully authentic Stags Leap character and captivating aromas of mocha, Creme de Cassis, dark cherry, vanilla and baking spices. Its terroir is just as unmistakable on the palate, where the signature SLD currant-cherry-mocha trio is married to equally expressive savory tobacconist-shop notes and sweet baking spices. The finish is elegantly balanced, silky and lingering, but its also firmed by polished tannins, which promise a long cellar life to a wine that is already absolutely delicious and clearly the star of the N & N portfolio in 2005.NICKEL & NICKEL COPPER STREAK CABERNET SAUVIGNON STAGS LEAP DISTRICT 2005

Wine Tasting NotesThe Copper Streak has a medley of interesting aromas and flavors. A nice, sweet entry of cherry and currant accompanied by layers of earth and coffee on the palate. This vintage also has hints of bacon with sweet herbs and chocolate that offer layer upon layer of flavor. Its rich, chewy, body expands on the palate, enveloped by soft, yet supple, tannins that progress into the wine's long, sweet finish.
