Notes from the Winemaker:
The 2016 Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon opens with beautiful plum and black cherry aromas underscored by delicate notes of herb and earth. Layers of soft, juicy cherry flavors spread across the palate, while firm yet silky tannins are balanced by bright natural acidity on the finish. The resulting wine possesses a lushness and depth that is both immediately approachable yet structured to evolve beautifully over time.

Vineyard Notes:
The home vineyard of Nickel & 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 1880’s. The vineyard’s 30 acres of clay loam soil are planted exclusively to Cabernet Sauvignon, with 2 rootstocks and a few different clones which each add a unique element to the resulting wine.

Aging: French oak barrels (48% new, 52% once-used)

Alcohol %: 14.2

Ratings & Reviews

94 Points - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate:
"Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon John C Sullinger Vineyard has a floral nose with cassis, red cherries and redcurrants plus wafts of pencil shavings and rose hip tea. The medium to full-bodied palate is vivacious with loads of poise and freshness plus firm, grainy tannins, finishing long." - Lisa Perrotti-Brown (13th Dec 2018)

93 Points - Antonio Galloni's Vinous:
"One of the flagships in this range, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger is open and beautifully resonant, with the characteristic texture that makes wines from this site so distinctive. Mocha, new leather, tobacco, smoke, licorice and spice are fused together in a supple, resonant Cabernet Sauvignon that will drink well right out of the gate." - Antonio Galloni (Dec 2018)

93 Points - James Suckling:
This has very strong blue-fruit character with a softer, smoothly rendered palate texture that offers real drinkability and attractive, appealing style. Fresh and fleshy through the finish. Drink or hold.

92 Points - Jeb Dunnuck:
"Toasty oak, spice box, plums, and graphite notes all emerge from the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger. It's another seamless, very pretty, elegant wine from this label." - Jeb Dunnuck (1/31/2019)
