Plumpjack Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Estate 1999

External Review by JJ Buckley Fine Wines:

Intense and tightly wound, a massive wine with firm band of concentrated cedar- and currant-laced fruit, picking up hints of spice, earth and mineral on a dry, firm, tannic finish. Needs time.

A sleek, rich and beautifully balanced wine that combines layers of plush currant, black cherry and plum-laced Cabernet fruit with touches of earth, cedar and tobacco.
