Nickel & Nickel John C Sullenger Vineyard Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger Vineyard comes from an Oakville site known for its deep clay and loamy soils. A textbook mid-Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, it offers plenty of black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of toasty oak, white chocolate and espresso. Full-bodied and rich, this definitive Napa Cabernet is still young, but it has a certain accessibility, and should drink nicely for 15-20 years...93+" WA 10/13
