Nickel & Nickel John C Sullenger Vineyard Oakville – 2008

Winemaker’s Notes

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 1880s. The 2008 Sullenger offers blackberry, black cherry and an earthy character which blends beautifully on the palate. It delivers on its promise of flavor and thickness, emphasizing the ripe, plushness of the vintage. The supple tannins coupled with the oak give a strong, supportive backbone to this wine, and the consistency of the flavor carries through into a long, memorable finish.
