PlumpJack Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012
PlumpJack Reserve Cabernet is a testament to the renowned and unique terrior of the estate vineyard. This wine exhibits plum and black cherry with earth, smoke, spices, and mint on the nose, and flavors of blackberry, cherry, spice, and black pepper on the palate. The wine is silky and round with beautifully integrated tannin and a finish drawn out by a lively acidity.
The 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Estate Oakville adds a lot of structure and even more density to the basic cuvée. It’s an inky ruby/purple, has notes of graphite and toasty vanilla, but is dominated by the black cherry and blackcurrant fruit spectrum. Full-bodied, powerful and formidable in extract and richness, this wine will benefit from 3-5 years of cellaring and keep 25-30 years. It’s a stunning example of the vintage from a great terroir.
