Mission Codename Swan Song

All good things must come to an end.

We offered the 2015. The 2016. And today we bring you the equally herculean 2017 Petite Verdot.

We’re extremely lucky to have a close relationship with them, and by default that makes YOU just as lucky because instead of paying $130 you can get this beast of a wine for $45.

That’s 65% off.

But sadly, this is the LAST vintage you’ll ever get because they had to pull the vineyard and replant with Cabernet.

Sullivan Vineyards has been around for decades, with a rich history of making some outstanding wines. Their Rutherford winery is surrounded by some elite company - Caymus, Staglin, Quintessa, and Scarecrow to name a few. We aren’t the only ones hyped on their wines - a recent Forbes article praised them, saying “By any measure, the wines of this under-rated and relatively unknown Napa winery are world-class…”

If you had the previous vintages, you know what to expect. Described as “a mouthful” on Sullivan’s website, it has a weight and richness that’s unrivaled. Can you say INKY and DARK?? Stout and massively built - certainly not a wine for the meek and mild-mannered. Packed to the brim with purple and black fruit compote - bittersweet chocolate, plum, prune, mature leather, and peppery spice. The finish? What finish, it echoes effortlessly way past the minute mark! Practically a meal in itself, but it stands up to the gamiest of meats, the richest of stews, and the smokiest of smoked meats.

Truly your last chance to score one of our most popular offerings from Sullivan. Make your move!

90 Points – Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

“Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2017 Petit Verdot offers vibrant black cherries, stewed plums and boysenberry preserves scents with hints of dusty soil and sautéed herbs. The medium to full-bodied palate is tightly wound, firm and chewy with an herbal lift on the finish. Drink 2021-2029.”
