Plumpjack Winery Estate Cabernet Sauvignon Napa Valley 2014
RP95: "The 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."
PlumpJack is a famed estate on the Oakville crossroads, formerly the Villa Mt. Eden winery, where Nil Venge made profound wines in the 1970’s. PlumpJack wines are among Robert Parker’s favorite wines in Napa Valley. Winemaker Aaron Miller previously held positions at Groth Winery and Lewis Cellars. The Cabernet Sauvignon Estate honors its Oakville terroir with great structure and balance. Full-bodied and opulent.
