PlumpJack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2014


SKU 30691


"Early" was the theme in 2014. Though early, the growing season was exceptional and the quality of the fruit was outstanding. Aromatically expressive, this wine delivers notes of black cherry, ripe raspberry, and hints of sage and clove. On the palate, layered flavors of bing cherry, chocolate, mocha, vanilla bean, and warming spice round out this rich and balanced wine. The 2014 vintage is beautifully structured and is full of energy - elegantly smooth tannins and vibrantly firm acidity make this wine ideal for drinking now or cellaring for 10 - 15 years.

Wine AdvocateThe 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot, is a beauty. Bigger-boned and framed than many 2014s, with more structure, this is classic Oakville material, with an opaque purple color and a big, sweet kiss of graphite, blackcurrants, Christmas fruitcake and spice box. Full-bodied and opulent, with moderate tannin, this is a gorgeous wine to drink now and over the next 20 or more years.

Wine SpectatorRipe, juicy blackberry, currant and plum flavors are at the core, joined by licorice, fresh earth and cedary oak notes and hints of herb and spice. Ends with a long, full finish that tilts toward melted licorice details. Drink now through 2030. 6,500 cases made.
