About Nickel & Nickel 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon, Quarry Vyd., Rutherford, Napa Valley

Gil Nickel who founded Far Niente started 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 Quarry Vineyard lies in the rolling hills on the east side of the Silverado Trail in Rutherford. Nickel and Nickel source Cabernet Sauvignon from three distinct hillside blocks in the vineyard with white loamy soil that provides good drainage and reduces vigor.


The grapes from these 20 year old vines are small, concentrated and loaded with flavor. The 2018 vintage brought superb quality and ideal ripeness as well. The wine macerated on the skins for 17 days. It was aged 16 months in 48% new French oak barrels.

Wine Spectator scored this 90 points saying "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."
