Nickel & Nickel 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon, John C. Sullenger Vyd., Oakville
Gil Nickel who founded Far Niente Winery started Nickel & Nickel with the idea of producing just extraordinary single vineyard Napa Valley wines. Each is very low production from a unique sub-appellation in the Valley. 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. This is their signature wine with ultra-ripe fruit and classic Oakville structure. Black cherry fruit layered with sweet herb, spice and cedar play bath the palate and linger on the finish. Drinks well now, but will continue to develop for 8-12 years. The Wine Advocate scored it 93+ and said "The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger Vineyard comes from an Oakville site known for its deep clay and loamy soils. A textbook mid-Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon, it offers plenty of black cherry and black currant fruit intermixed with notions of toasty oak, white chocolate and espresso. Full-bodied and rich, this definitive Napa Cabernet is still young, but it has a certain accessibility, and should drink nicely for 15-20 years."
