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