PlumpJack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
Winemaker Notes :
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
Wine AdvocateA 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.
Wine SpectatorA 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.
