Winemaker Notes

The 2016 Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon opens with beautiful plum, black cherry and plum 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.

Critical Acclaim

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.

James Suckling

This bottling has an earthy edge with black-truffle, blackberry and cassis aromas leading to a very suave, plush and quite powerful palate that delivers a long, flavorful finish. Pure cabernet sauvignon.

COMMENTARY: Like all of the Nickel & Nickel single-vineyard Cabernets, the John C. Sullenger has been time tested and loved by all. The 2016 vintage is an excellent effort. TASTING NOTES: This wine is attractive and classy. Its aromas and flavors of ripe berries and shading of earth make it fantastic choice with grain-fed Salisbury steak accented with morels.
