About

96

"As it often is, the Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger is one of the most complete wines in this range. Nothing in particular stands out. Expressive aromatics, silky tannins and bright, red-toned fruit are all laced together in a sublime, nuanced Cabernet that hits all the right notes. It's all finesse here."

94+ Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon John C Sullinger Vineyard Oakville is a deep garnet-purple color with a crème de cassis, blackberry pie and eucalypt nose plus hints of Marmite toast, chargrill and lavender. Medium-bodied and elegant with fine-grained, approachable tannins, the fruit is open and ready for business. Yum!"

93 James Suckling - Jamessuckling.com

"A subtle nose here of blueberries, spices, a hint of mocha and crème de cassis. Full-bodied with integrated, soft tannins, fresh acidity and a fruity finish."

Product Description:

"The home vineyard of Nickel and Nickel, Sullenger Vineyard is situated behind the winery in the heart of Oakville and is named for John C. Sullenger, who settled the farmstead in the 1880s. The vineyard’s 30 acres of clay loam soil are planted exclusively to Cabernet Sauvignon.

Mother Nature once again reminded us that she’s in charge by providing us with loose clusters and small, concentrated berries, and exceptionally low yields. Because of this, the grapes ripened quickly on the vines and harvest came early. The August and early September heat that we experienced in Napa was ideal for both flavor and tannin maturity, allowing the fruit to come in with full ripeness. The resulting wines showed a beautiful concentration of flavor and tannin." -Winery
