Signs of the Season

by on November 11, 2012

When the temperatures dip and the skies have more gray than blue to them, our minds turn to Cabernet. It’s a natural reaction—one that, perhaps, you share. The mere thought of a hearty, red wine paired with a filling meal can have a warming effect.

If you’re planning a trip to Napa Valley this winter—and trust us, December and January are wonderful months to visit the valley with much lighter traffic and easy reservations at your favorite restaurants and wineries—give us a call. We’ll set you up for a tour and tasting, which will include a selection of (you guessed it) our single-vineyard Cabernets.

In the meantime, enjoy these images of fall at Nickel & Nickel. The skies may be grayer and the temps chillier, but there is still plenty of beauty to enjoy in the Napa Valley!

Bulbs are ready for planting—stay tuned for a springtime burst of color!

Our horses enjoy the good life: Mariah, the Paint on the left, is a retired barrel racing and pleasure trail horse; Aria is a Swedish Warm Blood and is a retired competitive dressage horse.

Morning Glory intertwines with the last of summer’s pole beans in the vegetable garden.

Our olive trees are heavy with fruit destined for the olive oil press and Chef Trevor’s kitchen.

Speaking of presses, this gorgeous color comes from Cabernet in our basket press.

The Sullenger Vineyard vines are preparing for dormancy.

A familiar view to our visitors: Sullenger House and the shapes and colors of the season.
