2015 Nickel & Nickel Branding Iron Cabernet Sauvignon [1.5L], Oakville
Cascading fruit flavors and incredible length on the finish consistently make this Oakville Cabernet one of our most elegant in the portfolio. The 2015 vintage is no exception, especially when bottled in this limited 1.5-Liter format.
Bright, clear black cherry and blackberry aromas, accented by notes of toasty spice, open onto a palate layered with flavors of mixed berries, spice and earth. Elegant and balanced, with a rich backbone of oak, this concentrated vintage possesses the tremendous length, the layered flavor profile and incredible depth that we’ve come to associate with this and other west Oakville vineyards.
Named for the branding iron owned by the proprietor, the eight-anda-
half acre Branding Iron Vineyard lies in western Oakville, close to the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. The vineyard is comprised of welldrained clay loam and the vines are vertically trellised to maximize sunlight and open the canopy. The area’s warm climate and sun exposure in both the morning and afternoon are perfect for slowly ripening the fruit, which often benefits from a long hang time.
