Plumpjack Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 2015
96 points, Robert Parker: "The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which also appears to be in bottle, displays the extravagant richness this vintage achieved. A wonderfully rich, ripe, opulent, and voluptuously textured wine, with oodles of blue and black fruits, a full-bodied palate, no hard edges, high but well-integrated sweet tannin, and a plush mouthfeel make for an intellectual and hedonistic experience of significance. Drink it over the next 20-25 years.
This famed estate on the Oakville crossroads, which was once the Villa Mt. Eden winery, where Nils Venge made a succession of profound wines in the 1970s, is now owned by the Getty family and called Plumpjack. These are always among my favorite wines in Napa Valley, as they are consistently well-crafted and represent the best of the Oakville corridor. - Robert Parker, Jr."
