Sullivan Vineyards 2000 Merlot, Library Release, Rutherford Estate
The first thing to notice as you pour this 14 year old beauty into your glass is the intense garnet color as you look at the deepest part of the glass, but the edges take on a slight brickish hue that signals an aged wine. Age has not taken anything away from this wine but has transformed it into a mature reliable Merlot with much to be appreciated and enjoyed. It offers something new to experience with each sniff and sip. On the nose there is overripe fruit and dried flowers with a hint of spice and leather. A taste opens quickly with black cherry, dried roses, bay leaf, coffee, earth and finishes with toasted coconut and soft tannins.
The next taste may reveal something new again. Take this rare journey for yourself.
14% Cabernet Sauvignon
Best to enjoy now as it is showing age beautifully or hold up to 4 years.
