PlumpJack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oakville|
Plumpjack's Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is fabulous. Super-ripe red cherry, plum, lavender, spice and menthol are all beautifully knit together in this lush, voluptuous Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Aaron Miller has done a tremendous job retaining a good bit of freshness here. Rich, sensual and enveloping, the 2015 is an absolutely stellar wine in this vintage. Don't miss it. This is a superb example of the year at its best.
A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and the rest Malbec brought up in 80% new French oak, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate tastes like a mini-reserve with its vibrant, fresh, clean personality. Blueberries, cassis, vanilla bean and spring flower notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, silky, incredibly elegant 2015 that has integrated acidity, a supple, charming style, and sweet tannin. It's ready to go but will keep for 15+ years.
Plush and generous, with a tasty mix of ripe plum, blackberry, cedar, olive and mocha notes, gaining depth and tannic muscle as it grows. Best from 2021 through 2031. 4,476 cases made.
