Bright medium ruby. Bordeaux-like nose offers cassis, black cherry, graphite, mocha and leather. Lush on entry, then suave in the middle, with redcurrant, plum, licorice and mocha flavors given definition by harmonious acidity. Slightly medicinal on the back but I like this wine's texture and give. The dusty, building tannins spread out horizontally to coat the palate. (Nickel & Nickel was established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente with the objective of producing 100%-varietal single-vineyard wines from Napa and Sonoma Valleys.)
