Introducing the 2016 Nickel and Nickel Air Show Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon!

We made just 175 cases of this new Oakville Cabernet, and we're excited to shared this debut vintage with you.

Named in tribute of the amazing flocking phenomenon that occurs when hundreds - or even thousands - of blackbirds dive, break and swoop together in unison over the vineyard, this debut vintage has the layered mid-palate and firm core of tannins that our Oakville vineyards always seem to possess. You're going to love the deep pomegranate and black cherry flavors, velvety texture and long finish of this extraordinary new wine.

Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Inviting red and blue fruit aromas jump straight from the glass in this debut vintage. The mid-palate is textured with the firm core of tannins that our Oakville vineyards always seem to possess. Pronounced pomegranate and black cherry fruit flavors on the palate give way to a long, layered finish that is pure velvet.
Vineyard Notes
Named for the aerial artistry of the valley’s blackbirds, Air Show Vineyard is planted in gravelly, well-drained soils in the heart of Oakville along the crossroad. This Cabernet offers the depth and layering that are typical of the region, along with supple tannins that are a signature of the vineyard site.
