Sommelier: Quicksilver

Sommelier FPONickel & Nickel Quicksilver Vineyard 2012 is full-throttle cabernet sauvignon. Expect nothing less from race car driver Gil Nickel, who founded Nickel & Nickel Winery following his Far Niente fame. With a game plan to produce 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines, this state-of-the-art winery’s stable of superior cabernet sauvignon features common threads of plush purple power, complex fruit and solid structure, balanced with refined French oak elegance. Their cabs thunder across the palate, crossing the finish line with broad treads of deep down delicious. And of course, it doesn’t hurt that their Oakville terroir undeniably is one of the best places in the world for red wine. It’s these traits and this house style that elevate Nickel & Nickel to the top tier of Napa Valley.

Quicksilver Vineyard is featured BTG and BTB at Fleming’s Prime Steakhouse & Wine Bar, where it pairs perfectly with their prime New York strip. Or kick your next in-home steak-out into overdrive with one of Nickel & Nickel’s single-minded monster reds from Martin’s Wine Cellar.
