Wine Highlight: 2012 Quarry Vineyard Cabernet

Quarry Vineyard, in the Nickel & Nickel portfolio since 2008, is comprised of three distinct hillside blocks, each experiencing its own unique soil and exposure, bringing delightful complexity to the wine.

We captured some of the 2012 Quarry Vineyard harvest in this video—take a look!

Winemaker Darice Spinelli tasted the wine recently, and described the wine as: “a classic expression of its vineyard site with flavors of berry, green olive, tobacco, tea and spice. Round and supple, these flavors linger on a foundation of soft tannin that will integrate with the oak to produce a wine of great complexity.”

Nickel & Nickel Quarry Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is still aging in barrel, and won’t be released until September 2015, but you can reserve this wine now. Contact us to find out more.


Wine Highlight: 2012 C.C. Ranch Cabernet

C.C. Ranch Napa Valley Cabernet has been in our portfolio since 2005. Tasted in April this year, Winemaker Darice Spinelli noted that this Rutherford wine is a bit darker compared to previous vintages due to the extra tank time. She says the wine exhibits a beautiful blend of red and black cherry fruits, hints of Rutherford Dust and a rich core of tannin that adds depth to the wine. As this wine ages in the barrel, it will harmonize and gain complexity from the oak, adding opulence upon release.
