K&L Notes

Nickel & Nickel was begun in Oakville in 1997 by the owners of Far Niente (the similarity of their labels is hard to miss). In contrast to Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel is dedicated to producing single-varietal wines from distinct individual vineyards. Each vineyard is farmed to best bring out the site's unique characteristics in its wine. In turn, some vineyards are not far apart in distance, but the wines are very different in character. The Branding Iron Vineyard was planted in 1998 in well-drained clay loam soils at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. The 2009 crop was picked just before a mid-October storm swept through the area. The wine spent 18 months in 43% new French oak. From the winery: "The 2009 Branding Iron has beautiful, ripe fruit flavors of berry and black cherry that coat the palate. Elements of earth and spice, in combination with the vanillin from the oak, add layering. This wine has a classic Oakville structure, which is an indicator of good ageability, and the generous fruit profile allows one to enjoy the wine now but will surely reward those with a little patience."
