Critical Acclaim

WE95 Wine Enthusiast 3/1/2021

"A strong showing of black cherry and licorice lead the way to a soft, supple midpalate in this wine that’s aged in French oak, half new and half once-used. Secondary notes of nutmeg, clove and coffee permeate through the structure and weight of the palate. Enjoy from 2028–2038." (95 pts.)

JS94 JamesSuckling.com Tuesday, February 2, 2021

"High-toned with lots of ripe, rich plums and hints of dates and chocolate. It’s full-bodied and layered with gorgeous fruit and a long, flavorful finish. A little tight now, but will improve by 2023." (94 pts.)

SP93 Wine Spectator Dec 31, 2020

"Juicy, with plum and blackberry notes that meld nicely with hints of sassafras and bay. Lightly brambly along the edges, with a nice tug of earth through the middle, leaving a loamy echo amidst the fruit and savory notes on the finish. Best from 2021 through 2031. 4,032 cases made." (93 pts.)

WS92 Wine & Spirits December 1, 2020

"This comes from the estate vineyard surrounding the Nickel & Nickel winery, on the east side of Highway 29. It has the density and richness of classic Oakville cabernet, with lush black-cherry flavors, lightly amaro-like bitterness and dark-chocolate tannins lending an umami bridge to beef stroganoff." (92 pts.)

RP92+ Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate 30th Nov 2020

"The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger Vineyard is produced from 100% Cabernet Sauvignon and was aged for 18 months in French oak, 50% new. It has a medium to deep garnet-purple color, delivering vivacious scents of black raspberries, mulberries and warm red and black currants plus hints of spice cake, bouquet garni and unsmoked cigars. Medium to full-bodied, the palate delivers juicy black fruits with a spicy undercurrent and soft tannins, finishing on a lingering cinnamon stick note." (92+ pts.)

Napa Valley

Napa Valley is California's -- and America's -- most famous and celebrated wine district. Located north of San Francisco, Napa Valley is most famous for its world-class Cabernets and Chardonnays. The region's acclaim officially took off following a 1976 tasting in Paris when renowned judges chose a Napa Chardonnay and Cabernet over top French wines made from the same grapes.

Most wineries in the region produce either a Chardonnay or a Cabernet, and usually it's both. Sauvignon Blanc and Zinfandel are also grown with success in Napa Valley. You'll likely recognize the names of some of the viticultural areas within Napa Valley, including St. Helena, Stag's Leap and Carneros.

California

When it comes to US wine production, California is King. California wines account for almost 90% of all wines produced in the United States each year, and is home to the most celebrated vineyards and producers in the country. California is probably best known for its world-famous Cabernets and Chardonnays, many of which hail from its two most-acclaimed AVAs, Napa Valley and Sonoma County. Other prominent grapes used in California wines include Merlot, Pinot Noir, Sauvignon Blanc, Syrah, and Zinfandel (which California made popular).

United States

The United States now ranks fourth in the world in wine production behind, France, Italy, and Spain. While about 90% of that wine is produced in California, other states like Oregon, New York, and Washington are establishing themselves as prime spots for wine production, as well. Just about any variety of wine can be found in production somewhere in the United States.
