Product Overview

The 2018 Nickel & Nickel Bear Track Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is Nickel & Nickel's debut release from this vineyard. This vineyard delivers a wine perfumed with elegant rose petal, blueberry, blackberry, and black cassis notes. On the palate, the same elegant floral and fruit notes are found in tandem with savory elements such as sage and black olive tapenade. This spectacular hillside wine is certain to age with grace over the next several years.

Bear Track Vineyard is planted in three terraced blocks on the eastern hillsides of Napa Valley, just outside of the Howell Mountain AVA. The cool climate and iron-rich, volcanic ash soils result in small, tight clusters of concentrated fruit. Ample hang time before harvest yields a Cabernet Sauvignon with intense, dark fruit flavors, and integrated tannins.

Varietal Composition: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Appellation: Napa Valley AVA
Aging: 18 months in French oak barrels, 50% new, 50% once-used

91 Points - Wine Spectator
"This offers up a solidly ripe core of crushed plum and warmed cassis notes laced with toasted vanilla, tobacco and a flash of loam. Light savory thread through the finish injects cut and energy. Best from 2021 through 2031. 1,502 cases made." -JM, 12/31/20
