Nickel & Nickel Harvest 2015 in Seven Words or Less: Early, High-Speed, Small Yields, Intense Flavors.

In addition to making this one of the earliest harvests on record for us, Mother Nature decided this would also be one of the rare years when we brought both Chardonnay and Cabernet into the winery on the same day.

A brief moment of pause for Chef Trevor Eliason,
during this year’s Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Day.
After cooking up mouthwatering menus for our Nickel & Nickel Cabernet release events for almost a decade, Chef Trevor Eliason has come to know the crowd favorites. For us, each event is a chance to showcase exciting new dishes to pair with our single vineyard wines. Over the years, however, our members and guests have come to have a few clear favorites. Chef Trevor clued us in to our Members’ Top Three, and suggested his favorite Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignons to open and enjoy with each.

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.

We’re hedging our rows in Sullenger Vineyard right now to not only make the vineyard neat and tidy but to help the vines send energy to what will soon be beautiful clusters of Cabernet Sauvignon.
