Plumpjack is one of the most sought after producers of Cabernet Sauvignon in California. Typically aged in 75% new French oak followed by malolactic fermentation in barrel, this has aromas of black cherry, plum, cocoa powder and black currant followed by hints of raspberries, baker chocolate and briar patch as the wine opens. In the mouth, primary flavors of plums, roasted almond, black cherry and black olive are followed by flavors of blackberry pie, vanilla bean and stone fruit on the long, rich finish.

Wine AdvocateThe 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Oakville is from the well-known McWilliam Oakville Vineyard, made famous by Nils Venge when he made wine at Villa Mt. Eden from this site. It has rich, broad, but velvety tannins, a medium to full-bodied mouthfeel, and up-front drinkability (which is somewhat surprising), but gorgeous seductiveness and plenty of blackcurrant and black cherry fruit. This full-bodied, precocious and lusty style should drink well for 10-15 years.
