Tucked into the gently rolling hills of Sonoma’s Russian River Valley, Darien Vineyard benefits from cool, foggy mornings that give way to warm afternoon sun, allowing the exposed fruit to ripen evenly. There are two different clones planted in the vineyard, each contributing its own unique flavors to the wine. Nickel & Nickel selects fruit from three-and-three-quarter acres of the 25-acre vineyard.

This wine opens with wild berries and spice aromas. Juicy plum, boysenberry, leather and anise are rich on the palate, melding with understated meat and char notes. The velvety texture and the balanced acidity support the fruit flavors through the long finish.
