The 2018 Nickel & Nickel Bear Track Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is the most elegant from the Nickel & Nickel stable. This wine shows excellent sleekness on the palate. Enjoy its stylish aromas and flavors of dried earth and ripe berries with a spit-roasted, garlic, and rosemary-accented leg of lamb. (Tasted: September 3, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
The 2018 debut vintage from Bear Track Vineyard delivers a wine perfumed with elegant rose petal, blueberry, blackberry and black cassis notes. On the palate, the same elegant floral and fruit notes are found, in tandem with savory elements such as sage and black olive tapenade. This spectacular hillside wine is certain to age with grace over the next several years.
