96pointsNickel & Nickel 2005 John C. Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet Sauvignon (Oakville)

Cellar Selection

This is a stunningly powerful 100% Cabernet, rich in fruit and well-oaked, that shows the authority of Oakville in a great vintage. Flooded with cassis, black cherries, dark chocolate and cedar, it's nonetheless too young in brisk tannins to fully express itself. A joy to drink, but needs time. Best after 2009 and for many years after.
