K&L Notes

Established in 1997 by Gil Nickel of Far Niente, the winery focuses exclusively on varietal wines from single-vineyard designations. The intention here is to share the diversity of what Napa Valley has to offer, allowing each site to singularly express itself. The winery is also keeping their practices as healthy for the environment as possible: Solar power, net-zero users of electricity, annually producing MORE energy than is consumed, organically grown grapes, replacing conventional company cars with hybrid-engine vehicles, and extensive recycling. The Hayne vineyard was planted in St. Helena at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains in gravelly loam soils which produce small yields of grapes. The 2009 vintage was harvested in late September and it spent 18 months in 45% new French oak. From the winery: "Our first release of the Hayne Cabernet Sauvignon is absolutely delightful. Opulent cherry and blackberry flavors harmonize with the vanilla and spice from the French oak. The lush, dark, jammy fruit offers a silky entrance that expands and coats the palate, while the tannins are rich and supporting, leading to a lengthy finish."
