About Nickel & Nickel 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Branding Iron Vyd., Oakville

The Far Niente owners founded Nickel & Nickel to produce extraordinary single vineyard Napa Valley Cabs. Each is a very low production wine from a unique sub-appellation in Napa Valley. The winery is located near the Oakville Crossroad and several of their best vineyards are in the Oakville AVA, including Branding Iron. This 8-1/2 acre vineyard is in a prime location across the street from Opus One and down the road from Heitz Martha's Vineyard. It's comprised of well-drained clay loam and the area's warm climate and ideal sun exposure allow for perfect slow ripening of the fruit. This wine from the outstanding 2018 vintage is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon aged 17 months in 48% new French oak barrels.

Wine Spectator scored this 93 points saying "Lots to like here, with a well of açai, plum and blackberry fruit to draw on and extra sweet spice, licorice, bay and sassafras accents adding range. Finish pumps along nicely, pulling everything together. Well built. Best from 2022 through 2033."
