MICKEL & NICKEL "QUICKSILVER VINEYARD" CABERNET SAUVIGNON RUTHERFORD 20018

Winemaker Notes:

Graceful aromas of mixed red berry, violet and green tea envelop the senses before opening onto the most round, inviting palate. Lush raspberry flavors are lifted by vibrant acidity and restrained, refined oak. Tannins are supple, allowing ripe berry flavors along with soft floral and dust accents to shine all the way through to the lingering finish.

The 2018 growing season kicked off in late February and eased into a mild spring that gave us extended flowering and uniform clusters throughout the vineyard. Summer continued with an even trend, with consistent temperatures allowing fruit to have beautiful, extended hang time. With no heat spikes we were able to wait patiently for every cluster to achieve perfect phenolic maturity. A no rush approach to harvest allowed fruit to develop beautifully on the vine and the Cabernet came into the winery with mature tannins, great acidity and perfect ripeness. This vintage was "near picture-perfect," and the resulting wines are generous yet structured and expand on the palate.

Tenacity, innovation and a single-minded commitment to "vineyard and varietal" have established Nickel & Nickel as the leader in single-vineyard Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon. Every Cabernet offers the purest expression of its vineyard. No two vineyards are alike. And, as the release of the new 2018 Nickel & Nickel Cabernets can attest, neither are any two vintages. Taste the pure, powerful expressions of unparalleled Napa Valley vineyards. The 2018 Nickel & Nickel Single-Vineyard Cabernets are crafted with excellence and made to be savored.

Critical Acclaim:

93 points - Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
"COMMENTARY: The 2018 Nickel & Nickel Quicksilver Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon shows the excellence of Rutherford. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits savory spices, black fruit, and well-appointed oaky notes in its aromas and flavors. Pair it with a juicy, grilled ribeye."

91 points - Wine Spectator
"Friendly and open-knit, with a nice range of sassafras, mulled spice, tea, cassis and cherry notes mixed together and carried by fine-grained tannins through the finish. Drink now through 2028."
