Tasting Notes
The 2008 Kelham Cabernet Sauvignon offers a compelling combination of cherry and blackberry that melds with earth, spice, tea and tobacco leaf flavors. The core is firm yet supple due to the juicy tannins from this vintage. The final impression is that of an extremely long finish that highlights the concentration and weight this vineyard creates.
Vineyard Notes
Kelham Vineyard is a 52-acre planting located at the base of the western hills of Oakville. Nickel & Nickel receives fruit from 7 acres planted to rootstocks which offer slightly different nuances to the blend. The soil is comprised of a well-drained, clay loam, which produces vines and clusters of moderate size. Some canopy management is performed to allow speckled light on the grapes which, combined with Oakvilleā€™s warm climate, is perfect for slowly ripening the fruit.
