Winemaker Notes

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

Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Without question, the 2013 Nickel & Nickel John C. Sullenger Cabernet Sauvignon is one of finest wines of an excellent vintage. When I tasted this wine I was absolutely amazed with its depth and style. Deep ruby black in color; aromas are electrifying and complex with dried leaves and black currants, very rich; medium bodied, ultra-rich on the palate, with fine and sweet tannins; dry, medium acidity, well balanced; concentrated black currant flavors, with notes of sweet earth and dried leaves; long finish, savory, rich aftertaste. (Tasted: April 20, 2016, San Francisco, CA)

Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
The 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.

James Suckling
Exuberant red with blueberry and boysenberry aromas and flavors. Dark chocolate and hazelnut undertones. Full body, soft and silky tannins. Firm backbone to the flesh. Better in 2019.
WS 91
Wine Spectator
Exhibits 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.

Home to some of the most sought-after Cabernet Sauvignon in America, Napa Valley’s Oakville district stretches across the center of Napa's valley floor and foothills between the Vaca and Mayacamas Mountains. This AVA is home to the legendary To Kalon Vineyard and Martha's Vineyard, as well as many powerhouse wineries including Screaming Eagle, Silver Oak, Robert Mondavi, Opus One, Far Niente and Groth.

The climate is generally warm and agreeable, resulting in year after year of favorable vintages. Summer days see a gentle tug of war between warmer inland air and the cool air coming in from the San Pablo Bay, creating an ideal environment to grow red varieties. Oakville's diverse soils, namely ancient sea bedrock, clay and gravel, are well-drained, and perfect for high-caliber viticulture.

Cabernet here is often bottled varietally but is also popular in Bordeaux Blends. Oakville wines are known for their silky, sensual textures, structured tannins, dark and brooding fruit and lovely aromatics. These age-worthy and prestigious wines are favored by collectors throughout the world.

A noble variety bestowed with both power and concentration, Cabernet Sauvignon enjoys success all over the globe, its best examples showing potential to age beautifully for decades. Cabernet Sauvignon flourishes in Bordeaux's Medoc where it is often blended with Merlot and smaller amounts of some combination of Cabernet Franc, Malbecand Petit Verdot. In the Napa Valley, ‘Cab’ is responsible for some of the world’s most prestigious, age-worthy and sought-after “cult” wines. Somm Secret—DNA profiling in 1997 revealed that Cabernet Sauvignon was born from a spontaneous crossing of Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon Blanc in 17th century southwest France.
