The 2018 Nickel & Nickel John C. Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon evokes richness, textures, and substantial persistence on the palate. This wine delivers spot-on Oakville aromas and flavors of red currants that meld into black fruits and forest floor. (Tasted: September 3, 2020, San Francisco, CA)
Beautiful red plum and raspberry aromas underscored by subtle spice and earth open onto layers of juicy red fruit flavors. Classic Oakville tannins support the full, round palate, while soft toasted oak and spice lift the long, seductive finish.
