Nickel and Nickel Dragonfly Vineyard St. Helena Cabernet Sauvignon 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2010 Dragonfly Cabernet is elegant and silky, with beautiful strawberry and berry fruit enveloped in plush texture. Hints of vanilla and toast integrate with the fruit, and the soft tannins add body and mouthfeel. This texture, married with the warmth from the oak and elegance of the tannins, creates an elegant wine with an incredibly supple finish." -Winery

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.

If you ever visiting Napa valley you absolutely have to make a stop by at this winery. They are known for their single vineyard wines. This was the best out of 5 different cabernet sauvignon that they let you try during the tour.

Nickel and Nickel sources this Cabernet from a small - 4 acre vineyard in St. Helena located at the base of Spring Mountain. This Cabernet is rich and jammy, with soft tannins and layered fruit and oak spice.

Ripe friuit flavors of strawberry jam, spice and vanilla can be found in this lush, ripe and full bodied Cabernet. Through a steak on the grill and enjoy it with this excellent Napa red.

Nickel & Nickel has earned its reputation as a top-notch Napa Valley winery by producing vintage after vintage of exceptional, single-vineyard wines. The 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon from the tiny, four-acre Dragonfly Vineyard at the base of Spring Mountain, is a perfect example. The site is located in the "banana belt" microclimate, where fruit develops super-ripe and jammy. It carries over from vine to wine in this sultry red, like a basketful of summer berries in your glass. Sweet vanilla and cedar notes support the fruit, as does the silky texture from 16 months in French oak barrels.
