Product Overview

The 2018 Nickel & Nickel Quarry Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon stands out for its aromatics and texture. From the spicy dried sage, raspberry and cedar perfume to the voluminous layers of mixed red fruit flavors underscored by hints of cocoa and forest floor, the flavors flow seamlessly across the palate with elegance, lifted acidity, and integrated tannins, with a finish that is long and distinguished.

The 25-acre Quarry Vineyard climbs the slopes above the Silverado Trail on the east side of Rutherford. The name comes from the old quarry that was the source of a white rock used in the ghost winery that still stands beside the vineyard. Three distinct hillside blocks, each experiencing its own unique soil and exposure, are harvested from this vineyard. The white, rocky loam soils are well drained, and the vines are of moderate vigor. Cluster and berry size varies from block to block, but all are small to moderate. This vineyard has full exposure to the afternoon sun.

Varietal Composition: 100% Cabernet Sauvignon
Appellation: Rutherford AVA, Napa Valley
Aging: 16 months in French oak barrels, 48% new, 52% once-used

90 Points - Wine Spectator
"Delivers a lovely beam of cassis and cherry purée flavors laced with subtle juniper, sassafras and earth notes. Nicely focused, cedar-tinged finish has a streamlined feel. Drink now through 2027. 1,990 cases made." -JM, 12/31/20
