2011 Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Day

on July 11, 2014

It’s summer, and while we love Chardonnay we’re thinking Napa Cabernet—2011 Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon, in fact. This year we’re celebrating our newest vintage on Saturday, August 2, with tastes offered of each of the 12 single-vineyard wines that make up this vintage.

What’s special about 2011? We think you’ll find that these wines share a beautiful balance and elegant expressions of each vineyard.

And you won’t go away hungry. Chef Trevor and his team are preparing an array of hors d’oeuvres to complement the flavors of the wines.

This event is nearly sold out, so if you want to attend, be sure to call us today at (707)967-9600.

Members of our wine clubs are the first to receive invitations to all of our winery events, as well as special pricing on wines and wine shipments. Learn about club member benefits here.

Cabernet Release Day: Experience the 2009 Vintage

on July 9, 2012

A one-of-a-kind experience awaits at the Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Release Day on Saturday, August 11, 2012. Cabernet aficionados will savor the opportunity to taste through all 13 of our 2009 Single-Vineyard Cabernets—each a stellar representation of its vineyard and AVA.

Winemaker Darice Spinelli describes the 2009 Cabernet vintage as big and bold, with dark fruits supported on a generous structure, yet with subtle flavors giving the wines layers of interest. “Favorites of mine with compelling fruit are Stelling and Tench, while Copper Streak and Quarry offer delicious, complex layers that seem to never end,” she says.

We hope you’ll join us for this special day and put your own palate to the test, discovering your favorites among our collection of single-vineyard Cabernets. Click here for information on how to reserve your place.
