Wine Profile
Tasting Notes
Powerfully intense and robust! From the entirety of the Sullivan Estate, the 2017 vintage can be summed up with this effort of Cabernet Sauvignon. Primarily grown on ancient alluvial fans consisting of gravel, sand and loam, the well-drained soils on the Estate are conducive to producing low yields and concentrated fruit. Thus, the 2017 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is the culmination of perfect growing conditions and the true understanding and execution of the winemaking vision. Rich and pleasurable, but an intensity of aroma and structure makes this wine a true powerhouse.
Ratings
94 Points - Anthony Dias Blue. "Deep, dark and rich with velvety texture and layered flavors of plum, vanilla and licorice, deep and balanced, long and memorable."
Vineyard Notes
The year began with abundant rainfall. Spring weather was mild, resulting in extended flowering. Three heat events, including one over Labor Day weekend, kicked harvest into high gear, dehydrating some grapes by early September. Cool weather arrived immediately afterward, allowing sugar levels to return to normal. Due to slightly lower yields the quality of the vintage is high. This is the sixth year in a row were quality has been above average.
Other Notes
87% Cabernet Sauvignon, 13% Petit Verdot
