The home vineyard of Nickel & Nickel, Sullenger Vineyard is situated behind the
winery in the heart of Oakville and is named for John C. Sullenger, who settled
the farmstead in the 1880's. The vineyard's 30 acres of clay loam soil are planted
exclusively to Cabernet Sauvignon.
The 2005 Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet is beautifully perfumed with aromas of dark
fruits. Cherry and black cherry fruits are layered with sweet herb, spice and cedar
from the oak. The most compelling element of this wine is its great middle texture.
Dark and dense, the flavors expand on the middle palate with sweet, chewy tannins,
resulting in a long, delicious finish.
"This is a stunningly powerful 100% Cabernet, rich in fruit and well-oaked, that shows the authority of Oakville in a great vintage. Flooded with cassis, black cherries, dark chocolate and cedar, it’s nonetheless too young in brisk tannins to fully express itself. A joy to drink, but needs time. Best after 2009 and for many years after."
"Deep garnet hue with a fuchsia rim. Aromas of fresh raspberry and charred oak. Tasty black cherry flavors with dusty, drying tannins and a good lick of charred oak. Sweet black and red fruit linger in the dusty mineral-accented close."

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...Read More About Napa Valley
(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...Read More About Cabernet Sauvignon
