There is so much behind a great bottle of Nickel & Nickel Single-Vineyard wine: carefully farmed vineyards, impeccable winemaking and a team of people passionate about our wines. Through our blog, we’ll give you an inside look at the personalities and stories behind the scenes.
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!
This year’s Single-Vineyard Cabernet release event was one of the best yet! Our Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Day is one of our most anticipated winery events this year, and we loved sharing the exciting new 2014 Napa Valley vintage with our wine club members and guests.
One of our favorite parts about our annual Cabernet release day is watching how our members gravitate toward certain Single-Vineyard Wines. No two wines are alike, even when the vineyards are less than a mile apart! Like so many things, are single-vineyard philosophy is most easily understood when you can actually taste and compare the vineyards side-by-side.
As for the 2014 vintage as a whole, Winemaker Darice Spinelli summed it up beautifully:
“Rich and elegant. Those are the two descriptors that come to mind every time I think about the 2014 Nickel & Nickel Single-Vineyard Cabernets. Intense fruit flavors and toasted oak add complexity to an incredible vintage.”
We put together some of our favorite highlights from our Cabernet release, below. You can check out the full album here.
