Quick Overview

The 2015 vintage shows the beautiful balance of rich fruit and supple structure that we love to see and taste in our single-vineyard Merlots. Sage, cedar, and plum aromas open onto a palate layered with juicy, berry fruits. Flavors of spice, black olive and forest floor complement the waves of dark, supple fruit, while warm oak and silky tannins provide elegant support. Harmonious and full, this wine is gently polished, allowing the flavors to carry from the entry into a long, lingering finish.
Nickel & Nickel 'Bear Flat' Merlot 2015

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 2015. 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.
