The Galactic Cabernet Tasting in Outer Space

December 27, 2023

Galactic Cabernet Tasting at Outer Space Wines

Galactic Cabernet Tastings offered every day at 1 PM by appointment.

Advance purchase on TOCK required.

Tastings on other days and/or times are possible. Contact Dan directly for an appointment.

The Galactic Cabernet Tasting is a tasting of four of the best single-vineyard Cabernet Sauvignons (including Cabernet Franc & Cabernet-based blends), most or all from a different Napa Valley region and/or sub-AVA. (Sometimes the flight will include a highly-rated Cabernet Sauvignon from another region or country.) Sit down to a flight of Cabs from AVAs  Oakville, Mt. Veeder, St. Helena, Howell Mountain, Diamond Mountain, Rutherford and Coombsville (rotating selection).

Outer Space Wines’ Owner Dan Dawson (the first-ever sommelier at The French Laundry) will begin the tasting with a short lesson on what makes Napa Valley unique and special for growing Cabernet Sauvignon, then guide you through the tasting, wine by wine.

Taste great, distinctive and rare Napa Cabernet Sauvignons and learn more about what makes them great from one of Napa Valley’s best wine experts and teachers. Wines poured will be available for purchase in limited amounts.

The Galactic Cabernet Tasting is offered Wednesday through Sunday at 1 PM. It will end by 1:50 which gives you time for another wine tasting on that day. Space is limited to ten seats per tasting so Dan can offer personalized service to all in attendance.
