Winemaker Notes

The wine has an ultra-ripe fruit expression, similar to other classic Oakville Cabernets. The signature of this vineyard remains constant, with cherry and black cherry fruits layered with sweet herb, spice and cedar from the oak. Rich and coating, the mouthfeel of the 2006 is similar to the 2005 vintage. The middle palate is sweet and plush and the medley of flavors progress into a long, lingering finish.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
WE 93
Wine Enthusiast
Shows classic Oakville tannins that are big, ripe, and intricate, but hard, entirely opposite to the softness of the modern cult style. The fruit suggests blackberries and cassis, enriched with smoky-sweet, spicy oak. It’s a beautifully structured, dry and elegant 100% Cabernet, but it's too tannic for full enjoyment now. Better 2012–2016. Cellar Selection.
RP 92
Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The dense purple-colored 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullinger Vineyard (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) comes from an Oakville vineyard planted in clay and loamy soils. It reveals more of an Oakville/Pauillac-like character of cedar, spice box, licorice, black cherries, black currants, and camphor. While it is the most complex aromatically, the wine is still 4-5 years away from resolving some of its tannins. It is a big, full-bodied, powerful, impressive effort that should drink well for 20+ years.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Firmly tannic and tightly wound, serving a mix of cedar, dried currant, graphite and mineral, at points turning juicy and then firming on the finish. Bordeaux-like in its structure and concentration. Best from 2011 through 2018. 3,108 cases made.
