2018 Nickel & Nickel Branding Iron Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon, Oakville

We've crafted riveting Cabernets from this western Oakville vineyard for more than two decades. Round and generous, with deep fruit flavors and coating tannins, the 2018 vintage pulses with instantly approachable appeal.

Club Price: $106.25

From the black cherry and dried herb aromatics to the sappy fruit flavors, Branding Iron Cabernet pulses with instantly approachable appeal. With deep fruit flavors that have a focused intensity yet feel round and broad on the palate, there’s a compelling density we have come to expect from western Oakville Cabernet, along with coating tannins, warm toasted oak and an extended finish.

Product Reviews

Average Rating

Lots to like here, with a well of açai, plum and blackberry fruit to draw on and extra sweet spice, licorice, bay and sassafras accents adding range. Finish pumps along nicely, pulling everything together. Well built. Best from 2022 through 2033. —J.M.
