"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Hayne Vineyard, which like its siblings is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, comes from the base of the Mayacamas Mountains in St. Helena. Easily the blackest and most saturated in color of the Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignons, the wine is rich and concentrated, with loads of blueberry and blackberry fruit, some licorice, graphite, and a full-bodied, opulent mouthfeel. This is sensational stuff that should drink beautifully for the next 20-25 years."

Product Description:

"The Hayne Vineyard is situated in St. Helena at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains and is well known for its single-vineyard wines from the site. The vines are moderate in size due to the gravelly, loam soils and the vineyard produces small yields. The warm St. Helena temperatures are ideal for producing sweet, jammy fruit and this vineyard tends to be picked at the beginning of harvest each year. Nickel & Nickel produces wine from nine acres.

The 2014 vintage is best described as rich and elegant. Similar to 2012, the growing season was ideal for producing a high-quality vintage. Beautiful weather throughout the season meant that fruit matured slowly over the summer. Warm days and cool, foggy nights allowed for a smooth ripening period, which is essential for juicy, intense fruit flavors. We took advantage of night harvesting and optical sorting to ensure that only the best fruit went into the fermenters." -Winery
