Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The extra hang time this year has yielded a wine with both juiciness and structure. Dark fruit flavors of berry and cassis blend nicely with notes of chocolate, tobacco and herbs. The middle palate is rich and spicy, and the wine seems to expand as the velvety tannins melt away. This wine is the perfect accompaniment with food and will continue to develop in the bottle.
Vineyard Notes
Copper Streak Vineyard is located in a protected hollow at the base of the palisades in Stags Leap District. The soils are composed of Perkins gravelly loam mixed with red, copper-like streaks, which is how the vineyard got its name. The vines receive a western exposure and are of moderate size, yielding loose clusters with small berries. The climate in Stags Leap is very warm; however, mid afternoon breezes sweep in to cool things down, allowing for excellent ripening. Nickel & Nickel Copper Streak Cabernet is produced from seven of the vineyard’s 30 acres.
