2007 Nickel & Nickel "Tench Vineyard" Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #1438008 91 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Outer quote mark From the red, rocky soils adjacent to the Silverado Trail on the eastern side of Oakville, the 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Tench Vineyard reveals an opaque ruby/purple color similar to the Kelham cuvee, but it possesses more restrained aromatics of chocolate, cassis and spice box. As with all of these wines, the wood component is pushed well to the background. The wine is full-bodied, rich, pure, powerful and impressive. Abundant tannins are largely concealed by a cascade of deep, concentrated fruit. (RP) Inner quote mark (12/2010)

K&L Notes

Planted in 1973, "the 43-acre Tench Vineyard is situated on the eastern edge of Oakville along the Silverado Trail," according to the winery. "The area's red, rocky soils of clay and volcanic rock have produced many famous Napa Valley Cabernets. Nickel & Nickel produces Cabernet from just nine acres of this late-ripening vineyard with northwest exposure. The grapes rapidly develop color and flavor as temperatures rise and harvest approaches."
