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
Composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate gives a deep garnet-purple color and fragrant nose of crushed black cherries and blueberries with suggestions of violets, dark chocolate and cinnamon stick plus a waft of cigar box. The voluptuous, full-bodied palate layers on the fruit and spice flavors, framed by plush tannins and culminating in a very long, fruit-driven finish. Decadent stuff!
