Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2008 Tench Cabernet Sauvignon displays bright boysenberry and blueberry fruits, which are special characteristics of this rocky terrain. Sweet vanillin from the French oak enhances the fruit and produces a beautiful middle palate. The fine tannins from this vintage add volume and carry those ripe fruit flavors into a lengthy finish.
Vineyard Notes
The 43-acre Tench Vineyard is situated on the eastern edge of Oakville along the Silverado Trail. The area’s red, rocky soils of clay and volcanic rock have produced many famous Napa Valley Cabernets. Nickel & Nickel produces Cabernet from just nine acres of this late-ripening vineyard with northwest exposure. The grapes rapidly develop color and flavor as temperatures rise and harvest approaches.
