The 2019 Nickel & Nickel Dogleg Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a lovely, palate-filling wine. TASTING NOTES: This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of black fruit, cassis, oak, and dried fruit. Try it with pan-fried lamb chops.
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 yield a plush Cabernet Sauvignon with distinctive red fruit flavors and a long, melting finish.
