Plumpjack Merlot 2008

A staple of the PlumpJack Winery portfolio of wines, the 2008 PlumpJack Merlot balances strength and finesse. A drought year combined with an early season frost led to a diminished crop where the grapes had to struggle to mature, thus producing very small berries and in turn intense age worthy wines. We are fortunate enough to produce 2,137 cases given the limited crop. Restrained elegance is a way to describe the 2008 PlumpJack Merlot. Primary aromas of baked plums, cardamom, mulling spices and blackberry are followed by secondary aromas of chocolate, vanilla beans and warm fudge. In the mouth, primary flavors of berry cobbler, plums and cocoa are followed by secondary flavors of herbs de Provence, cedar and cigar smoke. Firmer and broader shoulders at this point than the 2007, the 2008 Merlot will benefit from a 2-3 hour decant if enjoyed in its youth but will age wonderfully if cellared for 3-5 years.
