We invite you to explore our singular point of view and see what makes Nickel & Nickel and our single-vineyard wines so special. See you soon!
By now you’ve likely heard the great news: Napa Valley received inches of much-needed rain recently–more rain in three days than we had received in all of 2013! So there was an extra dose of celebration in the air at our Winter Open House as we toasted good wine, good company and great, rainy weather.
We poured a selection of seven single-vineyard wines. Some, like the Chardonnays and a Merlot, were new releases; some were current releases (two 2010 Cabernets); and some were plucked from the cellar (the 2009 Quarry Vineyard and 2008 Tench Vineyard Cabs). Here’s what we lined up:
2012 Nickel & Nickel Stiling Vineyard Chardonnay, Russian River Valley
2012 Nickel & Nickel Truchard Vineyard Chardonnay, Carneros, Napa Valley
2011 Nickel & Nickel Suscol Ranch Merlot, Napa Valley
2010 Nickel & Nickel John C. Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley
2010 Nickel & Nickel Copper Streak Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Stags Leap District, Napa Valley
2009 Nickel & Nickel Quarry Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Rutherford, Napa Valley
2008 Nickel & Nickel Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville, Napa Valley
