Nickel & Nickel John C. Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2013

Out of stock

We're sorry, but this product is not currently available.

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 density reminiscent of hillside fruit. Slightly chalky tannins resolve as juicy fruit claims the finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 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.

Wine SpectatorExhibits a tight core of snappy, dusty berry flavors, framed by cedary oak, that are firm and direct, highlighting the anise-licorice element. Ends with a gravelly, dusty finish. Drink now through 2030. 4,158 cases made.

Wine EnthusiastThis 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.
