Spring into the Future: Highlights from our Cabernet Futures Barrel Tasting!

We loved celebrating our Annual Cabernet Futures Barrel Tasting with everyone this past weekend!

The 2016 Napa Valley growing season gave us a gorgeous vintage. The vines and crop load had near-perfect balance, and as a whole, the wines showed pure, ripe fruit, with length and complexity. We were thrilled to share this very first taste of our still-maturing 2016 Nickel & Nickel Single-Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons with our members and guests.

We debuted two new wines during our annual barrel tasting: the first from a northern Calistoga vineyard called Kenefick Ranch and the second from a newly acquired Oakville site called Crossroads Vineyard. Â We'll share more about these wines soon! And we'll be sure to keep everyone who scooped up some of the 2016 vintage updated on the progress of their wines throughout the year.

But first, some photo highlights from our favorite spring event! You can view the full album here. To learn more about our Cabernet Futures program, click here.
