The 2012 Rock Cairn Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon consistently produces wine of great distinction, and this 2012 vintage is no exception. Aromas of earth, tobacco leaf and anise intrigue the senses while flavors of cherry and black cherry fruits add juiciness to the palate. Toasty char from the French oak adds complexity but it is the rich core of tannins that carries these flavors into a long, luxurious finish.
Nickel & Nickel is devoted exclusively to producing 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinctive personality of each vineyard. Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente, the winery is based in Oakville, California, on the 42-acre John C. Sullenger vineyard property. Nickel & Nickel produces single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley, but also makes single-vineyard Chardonnay, Merlot, Syrah and Zinfandel.
