I have always enjoyed the richness of the Nickel & Nickel's Quarry Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2017 vintage shows excellent power and size, yet stays stylish in the end. This wine is heady and full. Its definitive aromas and flavors of dried earth and black fruits should pair well with a thick grilled Porterhouse. (Tasted: September 5, 2019, San Francisco, CA)
A classic Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon with beautiful aromas of sage, cedar, black olive and forest floor, mixed with briary notes of blueberry and spicy black fruits. With ample intensity of fruit on entry, the 2017 Quarry possesses moderate tannins that are layered and elegant. Subtle herbaceous notes mixed with oak come through on the back half of the palate, reminiscent of delectable baking spices, such as vanilla, clove, and brioche. The resulting wine creates a lasting impression with its graceful finish.
