Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon John C Sullinger Vineyard has a floral nose with cassis, red cherries and redcurrants plus wafts of pencil shavings and rose hip tea. The medium to full-bodied palate is vivacious with loads of poise and freshness plus firm, grainy tannins, finishing long. Wine Advocate 94
One of the flagships in this range, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger is open and beautifully resonant, with the characteristic texture that makes wines from this site so distinctive. Mocha, new leather, tobacco, smoke, licorice and spice are fused together in a supple, resonant Cabernet Sauvignon that will drink well right out of the gate.

As it often is, the Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger is one of the most complete wines in this range. Nothing in particular stands out. Expressive aromatics, silky tannins and bright, red-toned fruit are all laced together in a sublime, nuanced Cabernet that hits all the right notes. It's all finesse here. -- Antonio Galloni 96 Vinous
