VINEYARD DESCRIPTION
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
settled the farmstead in the 1880's. The vineyard's 30 acres of clay loam soil
are planted exclusively to Cabernet Sauvignon.
HARVEST NOTES
In , cloud cover in the winter and early spring delayed the year's growing
season, but above average rainfall filled the reservoirs. Bloom this year occurred
in June, which is the latest on record. This vineyard set an extremely small
crop this year and needed minor adjustments. A cool summer without any real
heat spikes offered a slow ripening period, and the fruit looked beautiful on
the vines. Without the extra heat, sugar levels remained low and we harvested
the entire vineyard in mid-October, when flavor and tannin development was
at its peak.
SENSORY EVALUATION
The John C. Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet offers complex aromas and
flavors of plum and black cherry fruits, tobacco, earth, cedar and dried herb.
Warm, toasty oak flavors complement the fruit on the middle palate, while
polished tannins enhance the texture and build toward a lengthy finish.
