The 2013 Branding Iron Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon offers mixed berry aromas accented by an element of char. On the palate, juicy raspberry and blackberry flavors mingle with green olive, rhubarb and toasted oak. Moderate tannins, enhanced by the ripe fruit of this lively wine, inspire sip after sip.
About Nickel & Nickel:
Since 1997, Nickel & Nickel has focused on producing single-vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon from the appellation’s most significant AVAs. A small collection of single-vineyard Chardonnay, Merlot and Syrah complements the portfolio.
The process of selecting a site to produce a single-vineyard wine is of paramount importance. Every aspect of a vineyard must meet our exacting standards, including the soil, rootstock, clonal selection, exposure and farming practices. Our viticulture team farms with precision, based on what is required for each site to achieve the purest expression of its place. The process reveals how vineyards that are in some cases less than a mile apart and growing the same varietal, may produce wines of remarkably different character.
