WA 91pts - Winemaker Notes - The 2007 Sullenger has the blackberry and black cherry flavors that seem to express themselves so often in Oakville, but it is the velvety texture and chewiness of this wine on the palate that emphasizes its alluring qualities. The consistency of the flavors, as promised by the aromas, carries through to a finish that is in fact, mouth watering...
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. Robert Parker scored it 91+ saying "From a valley floor vineyard, the opaque purple-hued 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger Vineyard offers up restrained aromas of subtle smoke, graphite and black fruits. More narrowly constructed and tannic, it is among the most backward wines in this portfolio, possessing a Bordeaux-like structure and flavor profile. It requires 4-5 years of cellaring and should keep for 20-25 years." On Sale! Very Limited!
