|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
|Brand||Nickel & Nickel|
Wine AdvocateThe 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon John C Sullinger Vineyard Oakville is a deep garnet-purple color with a crème de cassis, blackberry pie and eucalypt nose plus hints of Marmite toast, chargrill and lavender. Medium-bodied and elegant with fine-grained, approachable tannins, the fruit is open and ready for business. Yum!
Wine EnthusiastThis is a high-toned wine from a site in the heart of the appellation. Dried herb and tobacco show up on the nose, with a hint of black olive. The densely packed flavors of dark cherry and black licorice lean into rich, supportive tannins and a lush finish.
Wine SpectatorYoung and chewy, intense and tight, showing little more than compact dark berry, loamy earth, cedar and tobacco notes, yet the finish offers more depth and hope for the future. Best from 2021 through 2030. 3,544 cases made.
