Tasting Notes
Our 2018 Dogleg Vineyard Cabernet opens with tantalizing aromas of red and blue fruit with hints of wet stone and graphite. Loaded with flavors of plum and red currant from the start, a slight minerality further lifts to a firmly-structured midpalate, and an elegantly long finish.
Vineyard Notes
Named for the vineyard’s distinct shape, which resembles a dogleg left golf hole, this eastern St. Helena site is planted along the historic Silverado Trail. Dogleg Vineyard is treasured among winemakers for its mosaic of alluvial soils, ample sunshine and cool nights. Soil and climate diversity yields a plush Cabernet Sauvignon with distinctive red fruit flavors and a long, melting finish.
