Although Nickel & Nickel is well known for their delicious cabernets, they also make a fabulous Merlot! A perfect 2018 vintage for this grape makes a stunning wine that is both smooth and spicy all at the same time.
You will want to pair with a dish just as rich as this Merlot; such as braised short ribs, rib eye steak, or a delicious pasta dish. Perfect for entertaining, this will impress wine lovers and maybe even get a few people who watched Sideways too many times to change their mind about Merlot.
Nickel & Nickel sister vineyard to the infamous Far Niente is located on a farm stead surrounded by horses and embedded in the Mountains of Napa Valley. A beautiful place to visit on your next trip to wine country.
