Nickel & Nickel is the sister winery to Oakville’s legendary Far Niente.
Nickel & Nickel is also based in Oakville, and is devoted exclusively to producing 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinctive personality of each vineyard. Nickel & Nickel produces single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon from all over Napa Valley. They have multiple offerings from St Helena, Oakville, Yountville, Rutherford and Oak Knoll. I love this estate because it truly allows one to see how deeply terroir impacts wine.
Unlike my beloved Giants, the Nickel & Nickel 2007 State Ranch from Yountville is a winner!
This full bodied beauty exudes lovely aromas of cherry, blackberry and dark fruits balanced neatly between juicy acids and velvety tannins with traces of blueberry and mushrooms on the finish.
The wine retails for $99.99.
