The 2009 Dragonfly Cabernet is a beautiful expression of the St. Helena AVA. Stylish and rich, this wine will impress you with its ripe, jammy fruit and plush texture. The wine opens with concentrated flavors of strawberry jam, berry, spice and vanilla wrapped in soft layers of toasty oak. The tannins are incredibly supple and long, adding to the warmth and elegance of the wine.
Nickel & Nickel was founded in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente with a mission to focus exclusively on producing 100% varietal, single-vineyard wines. Nickel & Nickel is located in Oakville, along Highway 29, on 42 acres that were originally settled as a farmstead in the 1880s. The winery's collection of classic barns along with the site's original Queen Anne-style home brings the historic farmstead back to life, while housing a cutting-edge winery capable of hand crafting up to 25 single-vineyard wines. The restored farmstead, to passersby on Highway 29, gives off an illusion of timelessness and at the same time deceptively conceals an incredibly sophisticated winery.
