An all time favorite, the 2007 Vogt Cabernet Sauvignon has its typical and distinctive dark fruit aromas complemented with notes of black tea and hints of toasty French oak. Jammy currant and black plum fruit notes are balanced by violet aromas and a hint of spice that all continues on the palate. The wine is evocative of mountain fruit: dense and structured, but beautifully polished.
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. Perched atop Howell Mountain, along Napa's northeastern edge, the 15-acre Vogt Vineyard produces dense, concentrated Cabernet fruit showcased in this single-vineyard wine from Nickel & Nickel.
