Nickel & Nickel John C Sullenger Vineyard
Description: Winemaker's Notes
Dark in color, the 2013 John C. Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a serious wine. Beautiful aromas of red and black fruits, spice and earth offer insight to the characters on the palate; plum, black cherry, anise, cedar, tobacco leaf, and tea blend together to create an abundance of flavors. This wine is thick and coating with a denisty reminiscent of hillside fruit. Slightly chalky tannins resolve themselves as the juicy fruit claims the finish.

Critical Acclaim
V 96pts
Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger Vineyard is arguably the most complete of the wines as it has everything; expressive aromatics, tons of concentration and the structure to back it all up. Beautifully layered in the glass, with all of the creaminess and textural allure that is the signature of so many of the finest Oakville Cabernets - the 2013 possesses stunning balance to match its dark personality. Even with all of its purely hedonistic opulence on full display, the Sullenger delivers tons of nuance and impeccable balance."
