Nickel & Nickel was founded in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente with the sole purpose of making 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines that best showcase the unique essence of each vineyard. Construction of a cutting-edge winery building built within a historic 1880s farmstead on the 42-acre John C. Sullenger vineyard property was completed in the summer of 2003 when the winery formally opened to the public.
Far Niente's Oakville Cabernet is a symphony of scent, flavor, texture, structure, and length, with ample layers of blackberry and spice and a smooth, satiny finish.
Notes of espresso, blueberry, and dark cherry waft from the glass and surround the senses from the first swirl. On the palate, the 2019 Far Niente Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon is silky and sensual, with blackberry and mocha aromas. This wine has a lovely mouthfeel, with well-integrated tannins and a smooth, long-lasting finish.
