Nickel & Nickel Hayne Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley, St Helena|
|Brand||Nickel & Nickel|
Displaying a deep garnet-purple color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Hayne Vineyard has loads of oak, blackberry preserves and warm plums with touches of cola, bergamot and Indian spices. Medium to full-bodied with a good amount of exotic spices and black fruit, it has firm, grainy tannins and great length. It just needs time for that oak to marry!
With a strong tone of oak and tar on the nose, this vineyard-designate wine offers well-integrated power and intensity. Fresh red currant greets the palate within a framework of concentrated depth and extraction, with a lasting finish.
There's lots to admire here, offering a core of dark berry, mocha, savory underbrush and cedary oak. More solid than special. Drink now through 2030. 1,212 cases made.
