K&L Notes

Nickel & Nickel was founded in Oakville in 1997 by the owners of Far Niente (the similarity of the 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 and vinified to best illustrate its unique site. In turn, some vineyards are not far apart in distance, but the wines are very different in character. State Ranch was planted in 1990 and 2005 in particularly well-draining rocky loam soils. The 2009 vintage was harvested in mid October and spent 16 months in 49% new French oak. From the winery's tasting note: "The 2009 State Ranch shows an intriguing combination of fruit and spice. Cranberry and berry flavors intertwine with earth and cigar, and the toasty component from the oak complements the fruit and adds an intriguing layer. This vintage also has a rich structure, more typical of a hillside Cabernet. This intense expression will allow this wine to age beautifully."
