With its floral aromas mixed with plum and olive, the 2015 John C. Sullenger Cabernet Sauvignon blends juicy and savory notes into an impossible-to-resist perfume. On the palate, dark flavors of black cherry, tobacco, anise and toast are accentuated by a lively yet balanced acidity. These flavors are carried by a rich core of tannins that build on the middle palate, carrying the fruit into a long finish.

As it often is, the Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger is one of the most complete wines in this range. Nothing in particular stands out. Expressive aromatics, silky tannins and bright, red-toned fruit are all laced together in a sublime, nuanced Cabernet that hits all the right notes. It's all finesse here.

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon John C Sullinger Vineyard Oakville is a deep garnet-purple color with a crème de cassis, blackberry pie and eucalypt nose plus hints of Marmite toast, chargrill and lavender. Medium-bodied and elegant with fine-grained, approachable tannins, the fruit is open and ready for business. Yum!

This is a high-toned wine from a site in the heart of the appellation. Dried herb and tobacco show up on the nose, with a hint of black olive. The densely packed flavors of dark cherry and black licorice lean into rich, supportive tannins and a lush finish.

Young and chewy, intense and tight, showing little more than compact dark berry, loamy earth, cedar and tobacco notes, yet the finish offers more depth and hope for the future. Best from 2021 through 2030. 3,544 cases made.
