Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Packed with fruit intensity, the 2015 Rock Cairn shows a rich concentration that is the hallmark of this small, scarce vintage. Bright black cherry, earth and toasted oak aromas open the wine, while deep black cherry and plum flavors fill the palate. An undercurrent of succulent herb adds complexity, while beautifully integrated tannins carry the rich fruit flavors into a long, gentle finish.
Vineyard Notes
Planted in 1984, Rock Cairn Vineyard lies near the southern edge of the Oakville appellation, east of Highway 29 and north of the town of Yountville. The 30-acre vineyard is named for the “cairns,” or piles of rocks, that were formed long ago when Indians traversed the hills and would place a rock on the pile as an offering for safe passage. The site is comprised of deep, gravelly loam with a western exposure, and the vines produce very concentrated fruit late in the season. Nickel & Nickel selects grapes from nine acres of the vineyard.
