A Taste of the Future

Cave CollectionIf you haven't already, you will want to mark your calendars for our annual barrel tasting event Saturday, May 12, 2012. This year we are featuring 12 single-vineyard Cabernets from the 2011 vintage, and though they are new wines, you will taste for yourself how each wine promises to develop. As you work your way through the tasting stations in the barrel cellar, you will be "traveling" through the sub-appellations that make Napa Valley a unique place for wine growing—from Sori Bricco Vineyard up on Diamond Mountain to Cabernets hailing from St. Helena, Oakville, Yountville (and more!), you will experience the uniqueness of each vineyard as revealed through these wines.

Best of all, now through the end of July you are able to reserve 2011 Futures of Nickel & Nickel Single-Vineyard Cabernet! As you know, each of our Cabernets have extremely limited production, so this is a great opportunity to snap up a future release before it sells out.

Call the winery at (707) 967-9600 to RSVP for the May 12 event or to find out more about our Cabernet Futures program.
