Quick Overview

Luxurious and silky with vibrant plum notes accented by hints of cedar and sage, the 2016 Nickel & Nickel Bear Flat Vineyard Merlot is one of our most exciting single-vineyard Merlot vintages to date. Layers of dark, juicy fruit and spice flavors are supported by supple tannins and subtle toasted oak notes. The wine is both powerful and elegant, with a lingering finish that lasts.

Details

This vineyard is located on the west side of the Oak Knoll District of Napa Valley. Well-drained loam soils gently slope toward the east, providing a nice exposure for the vines, while the cooler climate offers ideal ripening conditions. The vines in this gently sloping Oak Knoll District vineyard budded early in 2016. Bloom occurred in early May, and the fruit set was small and concentrated with lovely, loose clusters. We worked to preserve every single berry, maintaining healthy canopies, pulling leaves later in the summer and closely monitoring the fruit. The summer months were moderate, and the smaller crop ripened quickly. We night harvested the vineyard in mid-September to ensure that the fruit came into the winery cold and we were capturing the peak flavor from every berry.
