Nickel & Nickel Branding Iron Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2017 Magnum 1.5L

Cabernet Sauvignon from Oakville, Napa Valley, California

Notes from the Winemaker

An arresting berry and spice perfume and palate-filling fruit flavors make this Oakville Cabernet a single-vineyard favorite, and in this entertaining-friendly 1.5-liter format, a single bottle elegantly serves parties of four to eight.

Tasting Notes

The 2017 Branding Iron Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon offers a beautiful balance of fruit and spice on the nose. Ample berry fruit, fragrant herb and spice on a full, polished mid-palate make this a lush but muscular wine from start to finish.

Vineyard Description

Named for the branding iron owned by the proprietor, the eight-and-a-half acre Branding Iron Vineyard lies in western Oakville, close to the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. The vineyard is comprised of well-drained clay loam and the vines are vertically trellised to maximize sunlight and open the canopy. The area’s warm climate and sun exposure in both the morning and afternoon are perfect for slowly ripening the fruit, which often benefits from a long hang time.

Reviews and Accolades

94 Points/Wilfred Wong
The 2017 Nickel & Nickel Branding Iron Cabernet Sauvignon is active, bright, and well-built. TASTING NOTES: This wine is one of the stars of the vintage. Its well-defined aromas and flavors of red and black fruit put it squarely in the Oakville quadrant. Pair its juxtaposition of elegance and richness with lightly-seasoned pork tenderloin.
