Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Luxurious and silky with vibrant plum notes accented by hints of cedar and sage, the 2016 Nickel & Nickel Bear Flat Vineyard Merlot is one of our most exciting single-vineyard Merlot vintages to date. Layers of dark, juicy fruit and spice flavors are supported by supple tannins and subtle toasted oak notes. The wine is both powerful and elegant, with a lingering finish that lasts.
Vineyard Notes
This vineyard is located on the west side of the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Well-drained loam soils gently slope toward the east, providing a nice exposure for the vines, while the cooler climate offers ideal ripening conditions.
