Tasting Notes:
The 2015 Hayne Cabernet Sauvignon is a show-stopper. The concentration of this vintage is revealed as mixed berry aromas combine with graphite, vanilla and toast to excite the senses. The palate offers candied flavors of raspberry, cherry and plum wrapped up with hints of dust and spice. A coating texture unites these flavors creating a package that is rich from start to finish.

Vineyard Notes:
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 small to 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.


Ratings & Reviews

94+ Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Displaying a deep garnet-purple color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Hayne Vineyard has loads of oak, blackberry preserves and warm plums with touches of cola, bergamot and Indian spices. Medium to full-bodied with a good amount of exotic spices and black fruit, it has firm, grainy tannins and great length. It just needs time for that oak to marry!" - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (Oct 2017)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni:
"Nickel & Nickel's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Hayne Vineyard offers lovely depth and fleshiness. Succulent dark cherry, plum, mocha and lavender run through this sumptuous, racy Cabernets. Soft contours and plush tannins add to the wine's considerable allure." (Mar 2018)

93 Points - James Suckling:
"Crushed stones, bark, walnuts, forest floor, cedar and iodine. Full body, lots of dusty tannins, an impressive entry of acidity and a long, mineral-driven finish. Drink in 2020."

92 Points - Wine Enthusiast Magazine:
"With a strong tone of oak and tar on the nose, this vineyard-designate wine offers well-integrated power and intensity. Fresh red currant greets the palate within a framework of concentrated depth and extraction, with a lasting finish." - VB (Aug 2018)
