Napa Valley Cabernet is often referred to in general terms, but you don’t have to be a Master of Wine to recognize how miniscule differences in conditions and environment create a wonderful array of distinctive Cabernet Sauvignons, each with an inimitable flavor, weight and profile.
Single-vineyard, 100 percent varietal wines are our focus at Nickel & Nickel, and paramount among them stand our Cabernet Sauvignons. This grape and varietal was and is our inspiration for crafting wine when we established our first vineyard at our John C. Sullenger site, and it’s this varietal that informed our meticulous search for more and more superb Napa Valley vineyard sites.
The Napa Valley region is world-famous for its environment suited to growing bold, flavorful, thick-skinned Cabernet Sauvignon wine grapes. We sought out some of the best vineyards across the Napa Valley AVAs (American Viticultural Area) — areas recognized and sought after for their distinct geography, climate and soil that together make ideal conditions for crafting esteemed Cabernet wines. With hand-selected vineyards tucked in the terraced hillsides, stretching across sloping valley floors and climbing into high elevations, it’s no wonder that Nickel & Nickel has garnered the reputation it enjoys today.
When you taste the breadth of our Nickel & Nickel Cabernets, you’ll experience the nuances not just of vintages, but of vineyards. You’ll taste, for example, how a Cabernet originating from the western Oakville foothills differs from one grown atop Diamond Mountain. The nuances and flavor notes are sometimes subtle, sometimes pronounced, but always a delicious discovery. We invite you to explore our single-vineyard Cabernets online, or join us for a tour and tasting at our Napa Valley farmstead.
There is no single Napa Valley experience or taste. It’s part of what makes this such a breathtaking region in which to craft wildly different, yet superior-quality Cabernet Sauvignon vintages. Site, soil, exposure and rootstock are just a few of the components that influence the wines — and just a few of the characteristics we take into consideration when establishing a new vineyard.
Time and again, two vineyards within eyesight of each other yield Cabernets of extremely different character and flavor. Nurturing the unique voice and flavor of each hand-selected vineyard in our state-of-the-art winery, allows us to highlight vineyard, soil and fruit in ways few others are able to achieve. And to surprise and delight palates vintage after vintage.
