This is a previous selection of Gold Medal Wine Club- Platinum Series. In the proverbial wine-world, PlumpJack is what is known as a cult-winery, with their wines quickly scooped up at $130.00 per bottle upon release. Some of you may recall that they set the wine-industry on its ear by bottling their top-end wine with screw-tops to eliminate any chance for cork-taint. The 2000 PlumpJack Oakville Cuvee Cabernet Sauvignon is the inaugural release of their newest Cabernet Sauvignon. It is available only through the winery, through the Platinum Series and a few select restaurants where it sells for up to $20.00 by the glass. This Cabernet has aromas of chocolate, black cherry lavender and currants that jump out of the glass. On the palate are deeply fruited flavors with hints of cheery, chocolate, mint and sage. This is a 100% Cabernet blend from two prestigious Oakville vineyards, Tok-a-lon and Vineyard X. While it is very enjoyable now, it will only get better over the next 8 to 10 years.

Winemaker's Notes:

Unique aromas of fennel, violets, star anise dried sweet herbs, and black bing cherry preserves in the aroma are echoed in the wine in this classically constructed cabernet. As the wine opens, bright acidity counterpoints delicate notes of cedar, sweet black fruit and spices that are enhanced by a background of Baker's chocolate and vanilla, culminating in a rich finish.
