Nickel & Nickel Merlot Harris Vineyard 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Characteristic of Oakville, this Merlot has a nice core of raspberry fruit, combined with notes of earth and spice. The sweet, toasty oak adds complexity and the firm, yet supple, tannins provide length to the finish.

Gil Nickel who founded Far Niente Winery started Nickel & Nickel with the idea of producing just extraordinary single vineyard Napa Valley wines. Each is very low production from a unique sub-appellation in the Valley. Proving that can produce Merlot that's as exciting as Cabernet, this wine from the 50-acre Harris Vineyard located in western Oakville, just east of Branding Iron Vineyard is aged for 17 months in 47% new French oak. Wine Enthusiast Magazine scored the 2010 95 points. No score yet for this 2012 but the vintage has been touted as one of the all-time best. Limited!!!
