Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
The jewel of the Sullivan property, "James O'Neil" is our Reserve wine program and namesake of our estate's founder, James O'Neil Sullivan. This Cabernet Sauvignon's density and structure will carry it for decades, yet its suppleness and softness invites you to enjoy it now. Blackberry and cherry paired with minerality and Rutherford's earthy character jump from the glass. Big and powerful on the palate, the wine has a sense of luxury all the way around.

Vineyard Notes
The 2015 vintage started earlier than normal due to warm temperatures in the early spring, but cold temperatures in May caused an uneven fruit set, resulting in smaller crops and lower yields. Consistently high temperatures through the rest of the growing season led to one of the earliest harvests on record, with most of the fruit off the vines by the end of September. Overall, the fruit quality was high. There were no rain events or cool offs during the peak of harvest, which allowed for clean, ripe fruit and ultimately beautiful tasty wines.
