Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2011 Tench Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon shows the most prominent fruit out of all our Cabernets from this vintage. It presents beautiful aromas and flavors of berry and blueberry – characteristics that define this special terroir – along with hints of mineral from the soil and vanilla from the French oak. This wine strikes a beautiful balance between fruit and structure, providing integrated, elegant tannins that make it approachable upon release.
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.
