Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The 2010 Sullenger has ample black cherry and blackberry flavors with layers of tobacco and earth, characteristic of central Oakville. The wine’s defining velvety thickness and beautiful texture emphasize this flavor profile, expanding on the middle palate and easing into the supple tannins that make this wine so age-worthy.
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.
