Plumpjack Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Napa Valley 2012
The 2006 vintage was a year where grapes were harvested late and the yields were naturally very low. Given the extended hang time, low crop levels and even ripening, the 2006 PlumpJack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a wine of wonderful density with fresh, pure fruit balancing out the integrated tannins and seamless acidity.
Primary aromas of black cherry, plum, cocoa powder and black currant are followed by secondary aromas of raspberries, baker chocolate and briar patch. In the mouth, primary flavors of plums, roasted almond, black cherry and black olive are followed by secondary aromas of blackberry pie filling, vanilla bean and stone fruit. The finish is long and rich with a hint of tannin which points in the direction that this is a wine with ageing potential. Beautifully crafted with wonderful fruit purity, this wine will easily age for the next 7-10 years.
