Product Overview

95 Points - Vinous
"The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger is a potent, tightly wound wine. It shows a bit more savoriness and overall austerity than the Stelling Cabernet, which is not a bad thing, as both are terrific expressions of Oakville. Dried herbs, autumn leaves, tobacco, cedar, menthol, pine and sweet red cherry build as the 2019 opens with a bit of coaxing. Give the tannins a few years to soften." -AG, Oct/2021

94 Points - Wine Enthusiast
"This wine opens in a swirl of brick, dust and sage, which is followed by a leathery undercurrent that gives texture to an otherwise supple, polished palate. Plum, cherry and mineral-like earthiness provide contrast and complexity to a full-bodied yet elegant expression of the grape." -VB, 7/1/22

93 Points - Wine Spectator
"This has a lovely, caressing flow to its cassis, dark plum and blackberry puree flavors, while well-integrated toast runs along the edges, with a mix of sweet bay leaf and anise. There's a subtle loamy hint at the end, while the purity of the fruit wins out easily. Drink now through 2033. 3,200 cases made." -JM, 5/31/22

93 Points - Wine Advocate
"One of the family's own vineyards, Sullenger was planted to Sauvignon Blanc when it was purchased in 1997. Those vines were removed, a drain tile was installed, and in went Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger Vineyard is a fine success, boasting copious black cherries and baking spices, with gently herbal accents. It's medium to full-bodied and silky in feel, finishing with notes of pipe tobacco." -JC, 9/15/22
