Nickel & Nickel John C. Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
|Brand||Nickel & Nickel|
Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger is a softer wine than the Hayne, shows nice dark plum, black cherry, blackcurrant fruit, forest floor and a bit of spice. It is medium to full-bodied, shows light to moderate tannin and will better in 2-3 years than it shows now. The wine is long, with lots of upside potential.
Wine EnthusiastThis chocolaty, earthy 100% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a vineyard site in the middle of Oakville, farmsteaded since the 1880s. Campfire and graphite jump out, swaddled in restrained yet sizable tannins and a distinct herbal overtone. Expansive as it develops, the wine finishes strong in vanilla and more chocolate.
