Top Cabernet $50-$75 Tasted 12/13

3. Sullivan Cabernet Sauvignon Rutherford Napa Valley (2010)

Previously available for $70.00
Very fine layered aromas of violets, mint, integrated wood spice, black currants and a very fine hint of bell pepper greets the nose. Tight and reticent in the mouth, this does show great balance and good freshness to the fruit with the oak playing a lovely supporting role but the wine remains rather tightly coiled on the palate. The balance is great and with air this gains more depth and richness on the back palate and through the tight, dusty finish. There’s real depth and promise here, I would not prefer this tonight but it has everything and everything in balance to really develop into something special. Elegant and polished, it’s a little hot which detracts from it a bit but it’s still lovely. 93pts

  • 77883DM94523 I have to recommend the District Cabernet series from Raymond Vineyards. Each of these wines is from a specific AVA within the Napa Valley (Calistoga, Rutherford, Oakville, St Helena) and retails for around $75. Winemaker Stephanie Putnam (formerly of Far Niente) really knows her Cab!
