Description

Dark in color, the John C. Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon is a serious wine. Beautiful aromas of red and black fruits, spice, and earth offer insight to the characters on the palate; plum, black cherry, anise, cedar, tobacco leaf, and tea blend together to create an abundance of flavors. This wine is thick and coating with a density reminiscent of hillside fruit. Slightly chalky tannins resolve as juicy fruit claims the finish.

94 Points Wine Enthusiast -  A velvety texture makes this varietal wine luxurious. Cassis, tar and clove notes mingle with dried herb and black olive flavors, all integrated and deliciously graceful. Its robust tannins soften as it progresses toward a long finish.
91 Points Wine Spectator - Aromas of wilted rose, blueberry, currant and subtle strawberry add up to a notably complex mix of fruits, framed by firm, fine-grained tannins and a persistent push on the finish. Best from 2020 through 2032.

90 Points 
Wine & Spirits - From a vineyard on the east side of Highway 29, this grows at the edge of an alluvial fan that spreads east from the benchlands at the base of the Mayacamas Mountains. It produced a 2014 cabernet that’s both lush and herbal, fragrant with green, crunchy, savory herbs even as it’s rich and supple. Decant a bottle for roast lamb.
