Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Captivating dark fruit and luxurious texture define this Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2014 vintage opens with aromas of red pomegranate and toasted oak. Beautifully balanced flavors of boysenberry, cassis, herbs and earth are enhanced by the wine’s natural acidity. Smooth and plush, the flavors linger on a solid core of tannin, making this a wine to be enjoyed now or cellared for over a decade.
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, midafternoon 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.
