Britt Nichols resume speaks volume on her potential as a budding Cabernet star. Stints at Jordan, Peter Michael and most currently, Philippe Melka, have prepared her to make stunning wine from a myriad of appellations. Her debut Knights Valley Cab, Origins, is so good, with dark, hedonistic fruit and fish that goes a country mile. It might be near impossible not to drink these bottles quickly as the fruit is so good but don’t be afraid to lose a few bottles in a proper cellar. Like Britt herself, this wine has loads of potential.
The best part of any deal with Britt is that we are still in the infancy of a brand in the making. It’s not so easy to carve out time to sell wine when you have a day job AND a demanding newborn to tend to. The raw materials of Nichols Origins, the Grand-Cru, low yielding vineyard fruit, the new barrels not to mention her education, add up to a $50+ type wine. But Britt wasn’t working the books at Jordan, Melka or Peter Michael, she was learning how to make great wine. This is an amazing deal considering what was put into the bottle.
This is lights out Cabernet. Don’t miss it.
