Across Napa Valley, vintners are breathing a sigh of relief and planning well-deserved vacations. The grapes are in, and not only that–the harvested fruit is spectacular. Each year, Winemaker Darice Spinelli and her team take on not only what Mother Nature sends their way, they tackle a number of vineyards (21 this year!) and the unique challenges presented by each. With a beautiful growing season, near ideal ripening and rain that held off until the latter part of October, the Nickel & Nickel team has a lot to be thankful for.
We’re looking forward to tasting this vintage as expressed through each of the our single-vineyard wines made this year. And guess what? You will have the opportunity to do just that at our annual Cabernet Futures event in spring 2013. In December we will announce the date for this fantastic event. We look forward to sharing the vintage with you!
