Cade Plumpjack Cabernet Sauvignon Howell Mountain Estate 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): ...The bright savory and floral notes typical of the year meld into dark red cherries, raspberry jam, cloves, mint and pine. The balance of high-toned aromatics and plush fruit works beautifully here, as the elements play off each other nicely. This is a fairly approachable style for Howell Mountain, with relatively subdued tannins and terrific overall balance. Once again, Howell Mountain shows how favored it was in this tricky, challenging vintage. Drink: 2016-2031. (Nov 2013)

The fun-loving and irreverent spirit of PlumpJack clearly excited the sensibilities of Gordon's close friend and business associate, Gavin Newsom. Read less
