External Reviews for Nickel & Nickel Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville John C. Sullenger Vineyard
Gil Nickel of Far Niente produces extraordinary single vineyard Napa Valley Cabs under his Nickel & Nickel label, each is a very low production wine from a unique sub-appellation in Napa Valley. 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. This is their signature wine with ultra-ripe fruit and classic Oakville structure. Black cherry fruit layered with sweet herb, spice and cedar play bath the palate and linger on the finish. Drinks well now, but will continue to develop for 8-12 years. Very Limited!
