Meet & Greet Tasting
Far Niente and Nickle & Nickle
Guest: Pat Kelly | Central Regional Manager
Thursday, September 26th | 5:30pm-7pm

Join us on Thursday for an iconic Californian wine tasting with Pat Kelly of Nickle & Nickel, and Far Niente. Pat is the central regional manager of both the Nickle & Nickel and Far Niente tasting and brings years of experience and passion to the table. He will walk us through the beautiful single vineyard Cabs from N&N, sharing the history of the Far Niente estate, and you’ll get the chance to taste the difference soil makes in California. Both Wineries are known for their wines quality in their youth and their longevity and vibrance as they mature. Taste, linger, enjoy, and stock up your cellars – the 2015-2017 vintages are fantastic!

Nickel & Nickel Stiling Chardonnay 2016
$37.89 a bottle, $32.40 a bottle by the 6 pack ($194.40)
Planted in 1988, Stiling Vineyard is located in the Green Valley Appellation of the Russian River Valley. Comprised of sandy loam soils, with two different blocks and two different clones, this Chardonnay offers a unique yet classic experience. Intoxicating floral aromas burst into layers of candied citrus. Supported by subtle oaking, the vibrance and length create a refreshing and elegant experience.

Far Niente Chardonnay 2017
$52.89 a bottle, $46.29 a bottle by the case ($555.48)
Made the same was as their first vintage in 1979, this Chardonnay is delightfully fruit forward with bright, youthful acidity. A creamy, rich palate rounds out the finish and can be enjoyed for years to come.

Nickle & Nickel Suscol Ranch Merlot 2015
$49.09 a bottle, $42.00 a bottle by the 6 pack ($252.00)
The nine-acre ranch is located in Jamieson Canyon, south of Napa. The area is cool with early, dense fog and gives the wines a sweet herbaceous body. Dried herbs mingle with juicy stone fruits, and subtle spices stud the finish with lingering vibrant acidity.

Nickel & Nickel Quarry Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
$106.60 a bottle, $96.00 a bottle by the 6 pack ($576.00)
Named for the old quarry where the white rock for an old winery building on the property was sourced, there are three distinct blocks with unique soil and exposure. The white, rocky loam soils bring beautiful herbal aromas to the glass before intensifying into loamy earth and briary fruits, with layered tannins.

Nickel & Nickel CC Ranch Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
$106.60 a bottle, $96.00 a bottle by the 6 pack ($576.00)
Planted in Ruthford along a slope west of the Silverado Trail, the CC Ranch vineyard produces Cabernet Sauvignons of distinction. Delicate floral aromas open into rich dark fruit, and warm into earthy, lingering tannins. Refreshing and youthful.

No RSVP needed, this tasting is $20/person and does include a paired plate of Nibbles.
