Golden hues swirl in the glass releasing tropical aromas of pineapple, guava and banana that intertwine with spicy, vanilla characteristics. On the palate, flavors of apple and lemon add to the undertone and complexity while a hint of honey gives the wine a viscosity that is lush and lasting. Fresh, clean and inviting, this wine is sure to make you ask for a second glass.
"Early" was the key word for the 2014 Vintage, from bud break to veraison to harvest. Rain in late February and early March set up the vines for a vigorous start. The hotter months proved milder than most expected, with no days over 100F. Warm nights provided perfect conditions for Cabernet Sauvignon. Crop loads were down in some areas due to lack of water and small berry size, but at Sullivan we had higher than average yields. We were able to make very high quality wines that should show well for a long time.
