Tasting Notes: Nickel & Nickel Dogleg Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a lovely, palate-filling wine. This wine exhibits aromas and flavors of black fruit, cassis, oak, and dried fruit.

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.
