Red Wine | Cabernet Sauvignon
Nickel & Nickel John C. Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon Red Wine 2017 opens with beautiful plum, black cherry, and plum aromas underscored by delicate notes of herb and earth. Layers of soft, juicy cherry flavors spread across the palate, while the firm yet silky tannins are balanced by bright natural acidity on the finish. The resulting wine possesses a lushness and depth that is both immediately approachable however structured to evolve beautifully over time.
The home vineyard of Nickel & Nickel, Sullenger Vineyard is situated behind the winery in the heart of Oakville. It has named for John C. Sullenger, who settled the farmstead in the 1880s. The vineyard's 30 acres of clay loam soil are planted exclusively to Cabernet Sauvignon, with two rootstocks and a few different clones, each adding a unique element to the resulting wine. Enjoy!
