Those of you familiar with the periodic table will recognize the reference—Element 28 refers, yes, to nickel. We thought it fitting.
2012 is the inaugural vintage for this Single-Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The vineyard is located near Lake Hennessey and bears the hallmarks of a great Napa hillside cab. Exquisite, ripe, boysenberry fruit is complemented by floral expressions that add dimension. A solid core of tannin enhances the wine’s impressive character.
This wine was a pleasure to share at our Futures Barrel Tasting this spring, and we look forward to enjoying this wine again upon release.
