Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
A beautiful raspberry and vanilla perfume lifts from the glass, while strawberry, raspberry and cherry flavors unfold on the palate. The 2015 vintage is supple and jammy with warm spicy notes and polished tannins that progress throughout the wine and integrate beautifully with elegant French oak. The finish is long and seductive.
Vineyard Notes
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.
