Wine.Woot purchases now bypass your cart entirely! This means you gotta buy Wine.Woot items on their own, using your Amazon Payments account. You can't mix 'em up with stuff from our other sites. This cowboy's ridin' solo.

Sullivan Vineyards, where have you been all our lives?
We all have our favorite Wine.Woot, um, favorites, the vineyards that reliably deliver the goods to the faithful. It's always fun. But then there are those times when we finally manage to hook up with a winemaker we've admired from afar, and we feel a special tingle.
So it is today with our first Sullivan Vineyards offering. The Sullivan family has been farming their 21-acre patch of Rutherford, Napa Valley for nigh on 40 years now, selling most of their annual 5000-barrel output through the nearby Rutherford Estate. But as today's rich, flavorful Merlot illustrates, they skim off some of the good stuff for themselves, their close friends, and - hooray! - us.
Welcome to Wine.Woot, Sullivan Vineyards. Let's sell beautiful wine together.
2007 Sullivan Estate Bottled Napa Valley Merlot 750ml 2-Pack
With firm tannins and exceptional length, this is a lovely and age-worthy wine that demonstrates the true potential of Merlot with an exceptional growing season. The aromas are complex and inviting with layers of sweet spice, dark brown sugar and classic Rutherford dust. On the palate, lush flavors of plums, cassis and mocha dominate, with the tannins adding structure and depth.
Vintage Notes: The 2007 growing season was a wonderful year for grape growing. Overall, it was very dry and cool. Winter temperatures were warmer than normal into spring resulting in earlier budding, and bloom set in the vineyards across all varieties. A cool early summer allowed even, slow growth until the sun unleashed its heat in August and early September, encouraging richness of flavors and perfect ripening. The end of the season was moderate and harvest rewarded Sullivan with an exceptional crop of beautifully rich, ripe and balanced fruit.
