Nickel and Nickel Winery is all about single varietal, single vineyard wines and the 2017 Sullenger Vineyard is a beautiful Cabernet from the folks at Far Niente. 100% Cabernet Sauvignon. 94 Points Robert Parker: "Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon John C Sullinger Vineyard has a floral nose with cassis, red cherries and redcurrants plus wafts of pencil shavings and rose hip tea. The medium to full-bodied palate is vivacious with loads of poise and freshness plus firm, grainy tannins, finishing long." The home vineyard of Nickel & Nickel, Sullenger Vineyard is situated behind the winery in the heart of Oakville and just next to Opus One! It 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.

Still young but high quality in all the right ways. Looking forward to opening the cellar one in 15 years.
