The Many Faces of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon
Can you taste the differences in Napa Valley terroir? This tasting explores the incredible diversity of soils and microclimates in this world-class region, and shows how those differences express themselves through Black Stallion Estate Winery’s Cabernet Sauvignons. We welcome you with a taste of one of our rare Limited Release wines and an overview of the Napa Valley wine region to set the stage. Then you’ll see how we craft Cabernet at Black Stallion, with a tour of our estate, setting the stage for a seated, semi-private tasting of four hand-crafted Cabernet Sauvignon wines from different Napa Valley appellations. You’ll taste them blind, and apply your new knowledge to trying your hand at guessing which sub-region each Cabernet comes from.
Please allow 90 minutes. Advanced booking required. Per person cost $85 inclusive of tax, charged at time of registration.
Making Sense of Wine
Do you trust your nose? Join us for a fun, educational experience which challenges you to identify common wine aromas from a series of blind components and link the aromas to familiar wine varietals. We welcome you to this event with a taste of one of our Limited Release wines and tour of the estate led by an experienced wine educator. We then move to a seated, semi-private tasting where your senses are challenged to identify the aromas in 4 hand-crafted wines. Finally, we reveal the wines and aromas and pull it all together with a discussion of the key grape varieties and wine styles you have tasted.
Please allow 90 minutes. Advanced booking required. Per person cost $125 inclusive of tax, charged at time of registration.
