Nickel and Nickel 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon John C Sullenger Vineyard

nickelandnickel2011cab

The 2011 John C. Sullenger Vineyard Cabernet offers complex aromas and flavors of plum and black cherry fruits, tobacco, earth, cedar and dried herb. Warm, toasty oak flavors complement the fruit on the middle palate, while polished tannins enhance the texture and build toward a lengthy finish.

In 2011, cloud cover in the winter and early spring delayed the year’s growing season, but above average rainfall filled the reservoirs. Bloom this year occurred in June, which is the latest on record. This vineyard set an extremely small crop this year and needed minor adjustments. A cool summer without any real heat spikes offered a slow ripening period, and the fruit looked beautiful on the vines. Without the extra heat, sugar levels remained low and we harvested the entire vineyard in mid-October, when flavor and tannin development was at its peak.
