Vinous 95 WS 94 WA 91+ WE 90 Pts - Antonio Galloni - A real knock-out, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger Vineyard offers up a compelling of plums, blackberry jam, cloves, graphite and new leather. The flavors are vivid and remarkably precise in this striking, delineated Cabernet Sauvignon. Violets, lavender and mint add the final shades of complexity on the firm finish. Robert Parker - "The 2013 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." Wine Enthusiast - "This chocolaty, earthy 100% Cabernet Sauvignon comes from a vineyard site in the middle of Oakville, farmsteaded since the 1880s. Campfire and graphite jump out, swaddled in restrained yet sizable tannins and a distinct herbal overtone. Expansive as it develops, the wine finishes strong in vanilla and more chocolate."
