Nickel & Nickel Sullenger Cab 2003
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 setteled the farmstead in the 1880's. The vineyard's 30 acres of clay loam soil are planted exclusively to Cabernet Sauvignon. Sullenger Vineyard has been showing riper fruit flavors over the years and the 2003 vintage continues to follow this trend.
Established in 1997 by the partners of Far Niente, Nickel & Nickel is based on a philosophy of producing 100 percent varietal, single-vineyard wines that best express the distinct personality of each vineyard. It is from some of the most coveted vineyards in the Napa and Sonoma valleys that the Nickel & Nickel wines are produced.
Bought a bottle at a Collierville location, great wine, but for $175.00 thought it was far too pretentious, or maybe I just don't know my 2003 Sullenger Cabs? Doc Butcher
We had a magnum of the wine, and served it for a Christmas party. People loved it. Black fruits, deep, rich, long finish.
