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.

On the palate, the wine is bright upon entry and well-structured with a dusty black fruit note rounding out the profile. Warm, toasted oak and chewy tannins support a finish that is luscious and long.
