Sullivan's "Assemblage" cuvée is primarily Petit Verdot, one of the Napa Valley's most sought-after (and expensive) blending grapes and a fascinating varietal to explore in its own right. This wine, from the optimal 2013 vintage, showcases Petit Verdot's lilting, crushed red huckleberry fruit, harmonizing perfectly with Merlot’s black truffles and dusty blackberries. Spicy and succulent, the wine absolutely begs for a rack of lamb and salsa verde this summer.
