Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
With its floral aromas mixed with plum and olive, the 2015 John C. Sullenger Cabernet Sauvignon blends juicy and savory notes into an impossible-to-resist perfume. On the palate, dark flavors of black cherry, tobacco, anise and toast are accentuated by a lively yet balanced acidity. These flavors are carried by a rich core of tannins that build on the middle palate, carrying the fruit into a long finish.
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.
