Nickel & Nickel Hayne Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017
Opulent cherry and blackberry flavors harmonize with the vanilla and spice from the French oak. The lush, dark, jammy fruit offers a silky entrance that expands and coats the palate, while the tannins are rich and supporting, leading to a lengthy finish. Hayne Vineyard offers a distinctive, jammy, and lush texture that builds on the palate before the tannins melt into a dark and lingering finish.
100% Cabernet Sauvignon. Nickel & Nickel was founded in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente with a mission to focus exclusively on producing 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines. Nickel & Nickel is located in Oakville, along Highway 29, on 42 acres that were originally settled as a farmstead in the 1880s. The winery's collection of classic barns along with the site's original Queen Anne-style home brings the historic farmstead back to life, while housing a cutting-edge winery capable of hand crafting up to 25 single-vineyard wines. The restored farmstead, to passersby on Highway 29, gives off an illusion of timelessness and at the same time deceptively conceals an incredibly sophisticated winery. The Hayne Vineyard is situated in St. Helena at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. The combination of a warm climate and deep, well-drained soils provides this Cabernet Sauvignon with ripe blackberry flavors and an exceptional mouthfeel.
