Winemaker's Notes

Dark in color, the 2013 John C. Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a serious wine. Beautiful aromas of red and black fruits, spice and earth offer insight to the characters on the palate; plum, black cherry, anise, cedar, tobacco leaf, and tea blend together to create an abundance of flavors. This wine is thick and coating with a denisty reminiscent of hillside fruit. Slightly chalky tannins resolve themselves as the juicy fruit claims the finish.

Critical Acclaim

    Wilfred Wong of - "Without question, the 2013 Nickel & Nickel John C. Sullenger Cabernet Sauvignon is one of finest wines of an excellent vintage. When I tasted this wine I was absolutely amazed with its depth and style. Deep ruby black in color; aromas are electrifying and complex with dried leaves and black currants, very rich; medium bodied, ultra-rich on the palate, with fine and sweet tannins; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; concentrated black currant flavors, with notes of sweet earth and dried leaves; long finish, savory, rich aftertaste. (Tasted: April 20, 2016, San Francisco, CA)"

    Vinous / Antonio Galloni - "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger Vineyard is arguably the most complete of the wines as it has everything; expressive aromatics, tons of concentration and the structure to back it all up. Beautifully layered in the glass, with all of the creaminess and textural allure that is the signature of so many of the finest Oakville Cabernets - the 2013 possesses stunning balance to match its dark personality. Even with all of its purely hedonistic opulence on full display, the Sullenger delivers tons of nuance and impeccable balance."

    The Wine Advocate - "The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger Vineyard (14.9% alcohol) shows gorgeous blueberry and blackberry fruit, white flowers, sweet tannins and a full bodied opulence. There is plenty of structure behind all the fruit, and the wine is a 25-year wine for sure. "

    James Suckling - "Exuberant red with blueberry and boysenberry aromas and flavors. Dark chocolate and hazelnut undertones. Full body, soft and silky tannins. Firm backbone to the flesh. Better in 2019. "
