NICKEL & NICKEL CABERNET SAUVIGNON, SULLENGER VINEYARD, OAKVILLE NAPA VALLEY 2013
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 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.
This vineyard lies around the winery in the heart of the appellation, and it imparts lovely aromatics of dusty rose petals and mocha chocolate. Soft tannins wrap around a ripeness of baked plum, cedar, clove and earthy compost, with a shot of coffee on the finish. 2/1/2017 Virginie Boone
