Sullivan 2016 Coeur de Vigne
While intense in its structure and concentration, this full bodied wine deftly avoids any sense of heaviness. Its aromas leap from the glass with dark notes of blackberry cordial laced with swiss chocolate and vanilla. The rich, savory palate offers dusty blue fruit flavors with a touch of bittersweet cocoa powder that lingers on sweet fine tannins throughout the clean finish. Crafted to be approachable upon release yet age-worthy in your cellar, this wine is best enjoyed now with light decanting until 2028.
