Winemaker Notes :

A classic vintage in the making, the 2015 wines are voluptuous, racy and textured –cornerstones of PlumpJack's Oakville Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripe raspberry and wildblack cherry fragrances flow from the glass, followed by wispy notes of blueberry pie, dried sage leaves, and vanilla bean. Rich raspberry jam and baked cherry pie tastes take center stage of this dark, structured, full-bodied wine and are chased by secondary flavor components of mint chocolate, iron shavings, blackberry cobbler, and French vanilla mocha latte. Despite the hot growing season and another consecutive drought year, the wine possess an energizing freshness while simultaneously balancing the wines natural acidity and density – creating a wine worthy of aging twenty-plus years but capable of enjoying now.
Blend: 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot, 5% Malbec

A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate reveals lovely, open-knit, youthful cassis, crushed black plums and black cherries scents with hints of rose hip tea, chocolate box, lavender, tobacco leaf and redcurrant jelly. The full-bodied, vibrantly fruited palate beautifully offsets the rich black fruits with red fruit and herbal sparks plus tons of freshness, finishing with a wonderfully plush texture blanketing the fruit right through the long finish.

A ripe and exuberant style, with boysenberry puree and cassis notes spilling through, flanked by star anise details and carried by a polished structure. Latent toasty grip at the very end gives this spine and extra length. Best from 2020 through 2028. 4,500 cases made.
