Tasting Notes
At once vibrant and lush, Dragonfly captivates the nose with a gorgeous plum, berry and rose petal perfume. Layered berry, plum and baking spice flavors fill the palate, while silky tannins carry the ripe fruit flavors all the way through to the finish. From beginning to end, it’s one of the most elegant wines of the vintage.
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.
