Cabernet Sauvignon, Steak, Wine

​The Day After the Day After Thanksgiving – and a Review of Sullivan Cabernet Suavignon 2012

I am so turkeyed-out! What I need tonight is beef. As luck (and a little planning and foresight) would have it, I have Seared Sirloin with Caramelized Onions and Gorgonzola on the menu. Paired with a bottle of Sullivan Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Calley 2012, it was just what the doctor ordered!
Honest, there’s a Gorgonzola-smothered steak under all those caramelized onions.
See, I told you.
Sullivan Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2012 is produced by winemaker Scott McLeod. A part of a series I’m calling “Wines Scantily Clad” (non-Naked but made my winemakers) here’s my Vivino review:
My wife’s initial reaction: “Oh, that’s smooth. Very nice.” Thus the stage is set for this excellent Napa Cabernet.
Deep, inky purple in the glass. Aromas of blackberry bramble, tobacco, smoke, and spice. On the palate there is blackberry, cassis, pepper, black cherry, and hints of oak. And those tannins – dry, but oh so smooth. It’s hard to believe this is only a 2012. The finish lingers with dark berry and tobacco.
Purchased from, $30
Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars
This day-after-the-day-after-Thanksgiving, I’m thankful for beef.
