Tasting Notes
The 2017 Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon opens with rich black cherry aromas underscored by delicate notes of herb and earth, all elements that have become signature characteristics of our home vineyard in Oakville. Plum and dark cherry fruit flavors on entry are complemented by earthy notes that build on the mid-palate, and a rich core of supple tannins add depth and complexity to the 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.
