“This prodigious effort from one of Napa’s most popular Cabernet neighborhoods is alluring from the start with prominent plum and sage aromas. The rich and smooth palate boasts power and grace, with a deft array of black cherry coulis and cassis flavors complimented by dusty tannins. Hints of tobacco and dark chocolate carry through to the finish.” - California Wine Advisors

“Deep garnet-purple colored, the 2015 Sullivan Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (a blend of 97% Cabernet Sauvignon and 3% Petit Verdot) offers aromas of blackberry tart and blueberry pie with touches of dried herbs, pencil shavings and chargrill. Medium-bodied, finely crafted and approachable in the mouth, it has good pure fruit expression.” - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate (#234)
