Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon St. Helena Dragonfly 2006
Abundant aromas of red and black fruits are prominent on the nose. Perfumed strawberry and wild berries fill the glass and are complemented by sweet vanilla and cedar. The most compelling element of this wine is the silky texture that progresses velvety and rich across the palate. Slightly softer in structure, this elegant, yet plush, wine carries the bright fruit flavors into an incredibly supple finish.
Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel is based on a philosophy of producing 100 percent varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinct personality of each vineyard. It is from some of the most coveted vineyards in the Napa and Sonoma valleys that the Nickel & Nickel wines are produced.
I've have yet to slay a dragon, but if one did, they should open a bottle of this wine to celebrate. Aromas of cherry wood, black currant, and fine tabacco. A euphoric plethora of colorful flavors producing the darkest of juices. Paired perfectly with a 23oz steak, au-gratin potatoes, and creamed spinach. And yes, it was my birthday.
