We now have two shipping locations which means members in most cities receive their wines in 2-3 days via ground shipping. In states where it’s too hot to ship ground, we will ship via FedEx cold chain which takes longer but ensures your wine travels to the hub in temperature control at which point it gets upgraded to priority to be delivered by 12pm.
Unless you have already specified FedEx for your shipment, we ship our wines via UPS ground. If you’d like to request FedEx, please contact us at 707-302-3635 or contact Shannon at email@example.com.
Our storied history has created incredible moments, relationships, and even recipes.
"Sinewy, earthy and full of spice, this well-made wine is lush and sumptuous, with firm, focused tannins and integrated oak. Black cherry, cinnamon and nutmeg meld on the structured, full-bodied palate, with a graceful hint of dark chocolate on the finish. This will do well in the cellar; enjoy 2025–2030."
The 2018 Far Niente is sourced from vineyards in Oakville as well as Rutherford, Calistoga and Saint Helena and is composed of 93% Cabernet Sauvignon with the remaining parts Cabernet Franc, Petit Verdot, Merlot and Malbec. The wine itself begins with aromas of blackberries, cassis and dark cherries, tilled earth, spices, herbs and fresh cut florals. Palate is medium to full-bodied, refined and seamless, structured with gorgeous velvety tannins that make for a gorgeous mouthfeel. The core of red and dark fruits are framed by an iron mineral edge that persists through the finish. Overall, this is a beautiful bottle of Cabernet that is fantastic to approach now, but should also continue to evolve for quite some time.
The International Wine Review recently scored several of Nickel & Nickel's 2018 Cabernet Sauvignons. Read the reviews here.
Far Niente is known for its cabernet sauvignon and chardonnay, but its Dolce winery is devoted to producing one single late harvest wine. This type of wine is made from grapes picked a month or two after regular harvest, concentrating flavors and sweetness. The 2013 vintage is bursting with orange and caramel notes, along with gentle spice flavors and a soft minerality.
