Truchard Vineyard lies in the heart of Carneros, prized for its rolling hills, sun exposure and cool, breezy conditions that allow long, even ripening. Nickel & Nickel makes wine from eight select acres of this 270 -acre vineyard, composed of volcanic ash and rock with a southwestern exposure. The growing season tends to be long in this cooler area, allowing for fully mature fruit at harvest. 2013 was a warmer growing year and this wine shows a riper, fuller fruit as a result. As always, the wine is bright, non-oaky and has a long, clean finish.
