Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Tench United States 2008
The Tench Vineyard is a spectacular site to grow Cabernet Sauvignon, and thisparticular area has produced many celebrated wines. Nickel & Nickels TenchVineyard Cabernet comes from just four acres of the 60-acre vineyard, which wasplanted in 1968, and the land is situated along the flat, eastern edge of the Oakvilleappellation. The incredibly red, rocky soil is the calling card of this vineyard, andthe deep, dark, ripe fruit produced by older vines is its signature.
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.
