The 2009 Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon offers blueberry and boysenberry flavors that harmonize with a background of spice and herb. This wine is elegant and balanced between the juicy fruit and the vanilla from the oak. A coating, velvety texture is expansive and refreshing as the soft, supple tannins carry the flavors into a long finish.
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.
