The 2019 John C. Sullenger Cabernet Sauvignon is classic Napa Valley with aromas of blackbery and red plum and a touch of earthiness and spice. Upon entry, this wine seduces the palate with dark fruit flavors with notes of black licorice and black olive tapenade. Melting on the palate with a long, supple finish that is supported by beautiful velvet tannins throughout.

The 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger is a potent, tightly wound wine. It shows a bit more savoriness and overall austerity than the Stelling Cabernet, which is not a bad thing, as both are terrific expressions of Oakville. Dried herbs, autumn leaves, tobacco, cedar, menthol, pine and sweet red cherry build as the 2019 opens with a bit of coaxing. Give the tannins a few years to soften.

This wine opens in a swirl of brick, dust and sage, which is followed by a leathery undercurrent that gives texture to an otherwise supple, polished palate. Plum, cherry and mineral-like earthiness provide contrast and complexity to a full-bodied yet elegant expression of the grape.

This has a lovely, caressing flow to its cassis, dark plum and blackberry puree flavors, while well-integrated toast runs along the edges, with a mix of sweet bay leaf and anise. There's a subtle loamy hint at the end, while the purity of the fruit wins out easily. Drink now through 2033. 3,200 cases made.

Also from Oakville, the 2019 Cabernet Sauvignon John C. Sullenger is slightly more earthy and savory, with chocolaty red and black fruits and savory herb/tobacco notes, medium to full body, low acidity, ripe tannins, and moderate concentration. It's drinking nicely and best enjoyed over the coming 8-10 years.
