This post is for all you red wine lovers out there. If you happen to be in, or around, the Napa Valley during the first weekend in February, we’ve got a couple events that will be worth taking the time to check out.
First off, Silver Oak Cellars will host its bi-annual Release Day celebration from 9am – 3:30pm on Saturday, February 2nd at both its Alexander Valley and Napa Valley locations. This celebration is around the release of the 2003 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, which according to the winemakers tasting notes has “…dark garnet color with a deep purple edge, and displays aromas of blackberry jam, dark chocolate, rose petal, black pepper and cedar.” Tickets are $20/person, which includes a complimentary Silver Oak wineglass. The ’03 Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon retails for $100/750 ml bottle. If you happen to drop by, we might very well see you there!
The other event that should be worthwhile is Elizabeth Spencer’s Big Red Wine Celebration, which also takes place on February 2nd. The event will run from 11:30am – 5:30 and will feature wine poured from the winery’s collection of big bottles. It will also feature pre-releases of Elizabeth Spencer cabernet sauvignon, pinot noir and syrah. One of the winery’s signature productions, the 2005 Elizabeth Spencer Cabernet Sauvignon from Rutherford, will be available in large format sizes including 6L, 9L, 12L and 18L bottles. Cost is $20/person, but to get tickets, you have to call BY TODAY (1/25) and speak with Patti Podolski at 707-963-4762 or email@example.com.
