Nickel & Nickel
John C. Sullenger Vyd Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville 2012
Nickel & Nickel is located in Oakville, Napa Valley, along Highway 29, on 42 acres that were originally settled as a farmstead in the 1880s. Our collection of classic barns along with the site’s original Queen Ann style home brings the historic farmstead back to life. Housed within the genteel farmstead structures is an ultra-modern winery uniquely suited to producing single-vineyard wines.
Named for John C. Sullenger, who purchased the land in 1865 and established the farmstead in the 1880s, the 2,800 square-foot Sullenger House is a handsome farmhouse with charming Queen Anne details, built around 1884. Abandoned and neglected for more than two decades, the home was restored in 2002 and provides a warm and friendly welcome to our winery guests.
“The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger is a softer wine than the Hayne, shows nice dark plum, black cherry, blackcurrant fruit, forest floor and a bit of spice. It is medium to full-bodied, shows light to moderate tannin and will better in 2-3 years than it shows now. The wine is long, with lots of upside potential..“- 91+ Points, Wine Advocate
