Our 2017 Dragonfly Vineyard Cabernet is filled with bright aromas of strawberry, raspberry, cherry and Santa Rosa plum accented by elegant notes of violet. Complementary red fruit flavors envelope the tongue while tannins melt on the palate, resulting in a Cabernet Sauvignon that is lush and seductive.
The diminutive, four-acre Dragonfly Vineyard is located in St. Helena at the base of Spring Mountain. Old timers know this magical place as a “banana belt” microclimate, as its ideal summer temperatures allow the vines to develop their notable ripe and jammy fruit. The vines benefit from the site’s deep, gravelly loam soils and gentle southern exposure, and the vineyard is one of the first to be harvested each year.
