Are You Ready for 2010 Nickel & Nickel Cabernets?

on June 27, 2013

We are fast approaching our favorite time of year: the release our newest vintage of Single-Vineyard Napa Valley Cabernets. Each year our August Cabernet Release event draws friends and fans from across the country, eager to be among the first to taste these wines.

This year we are excited to present 12 Single-Vineyard Cabernets. From small bottlings (like Dragonfly Vineyard or Martin Stelling Vineyard) to vineyards with slightly more production (like State Ranch or Sullenger Vineyard), these wines are beautiful expressions of their vineyard sites.

Harvest Report

on November 12, 2012

Across Napa Valley, vintners are breathing a sigh of relief and planning well-deserved vacations. The grapes are in, and not only that–the harvested fruit is spectacular. Each year, Winemaker Darice Spinelli and her team take on not only what Mother Nature sends their way, they tackle a number of vineyards (21 this year!) and the unique challenges presented by each. With a beautiful growing season, near ideal ripening and rain that held off until the latter part of October, the Nickel & Nickel team has a lot to be thankful for.

We’re looking forward to tasting this vintage as expressed through each of the our single-vineyard wines made this year. And guess what? You will have the opportunity to do just that at our annual Cabernet Futures event in spring 2013. In December we will announce the date for this fantastic event. We look forward to sharing the vintage with you!
