    April 5, 2021 - Consumed over two days and this is quite good; I have the tendency of hoarding my N&N as I’ve found they typically deserve [demand] some cellar time. This is lovely and likely starting its prime drinking window, a nice example of the grape, it offers of dark cherry, fine tannins, soft and elegant. Easily drinking now with a short decant. 93

    October 13, 2020 - Full bodied nose of ripe fruit. Smooth and silky mouthfeel. Notes of plum and cherry. Drinking very well.

    July 17, 2020 - Sourced from vines averaging 22 years in age and comprised of 100% Merlot, this elegant wine saw 16 months in French oak (48% new, 52% once-used) during its vinification. Opaque ruby, intensely aromatic and defining sleekness, it delivers a package of Bing cherries, cassis, baking spices, cedar and savory herbs. Full-bodied, low in acidity, seamlessly alcoholic (14.2%) and judiciously oaked, it has excellent mid-palate density and closes with a lengthy, smooth finish. A tremendous example of what this grape can achieve in the Napa Valley, this is a red that will have broad appeal. It should be at its best over the next 6-7 years. Drink now-2027.

    December 21, 2018 - On a bit of a recent Nickel & Nickel kick. Not quite at the level of the Nickel cabs, but darn close when drinking this young...and at 1/2 the price. Violets and vanillin on he nose, cherry, blackberry on the palate. Nicely harmonized with a 30 minute decant. Drinking better than the ‘14 now.

    November 20, 2018 - Very nice. We enjoyed this very much with dinner @ Bottega in Yountville. Excellent on nose, smooth and integrated for being so young, and great finish. Enjoy!
