2018 SULLIVAN COEUR DE VIGNE RUTHERFORD CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$120.00 $120.00

Jim Sullivan’s obsession with wine began in the 1950s, building for more than two decades before the Judgement of Paris in 1976 that sparked worldwide interest in California wines. He founded Sullivan Estate in 1972, and the winery has been quietly producing robust, sultry Rutherford Cabernet Sauvignon ever since.

Winemaker Jeff Cole gives the estate a clear and powerful voice, articulated through precision winemaking with an emphasis on crafting wines with a rich sense of place. The classically styled 2018 release represents the estate’s capabilities, achieved after the vintage amplified Rutherford’s distinct terroir through the grape’s extended hang-time, allowing for extraordinary aromatic development.

2018 SULLIVAN COEUR DE VIGNE RUTHERFORD CABERNET SAUVIGNON

"Deeply colored, smooth, rich, with plum, blackberry, lush style, with hints of vanilla"
95 Points
"This is a sanguine and effusively perfumed red wine, soft and rounded in texture, with underlying grip. Richness prevails in the form of dark cherry, cassis and dark chocolate, with ancillary notes of dried herb, cedar and sweet tobacco. This is an impressive wine from the appellation: full-bodied and well integrated."
94 Points
"Aromas of ripe berries, vanilla, licorice and pine needles. Some blue flowers and chocolate, too. Full-bodied, rich and intense palate with plush tannins and succulent berries and spiced oak. Long, firm finish. Try after 2024."
93 Points
"Very solid Cabernet, with a core of warmed cassis and plum reduction notes wrapped in licorice root, alder and tobacco. Everything moves in lockstep from start to finish, with a loamy edge lingering at the very end. Best from 2024 through 2036."
