Plumpjack Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Estate 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

93+ points Robert Parker: A more long distance runner, although approachable now, the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate exhibits a similar dense plum/purple color in addition to notes of white flowers, black raspberries, black currants, lead pencil shavings and burning embers. Full-bodied and rich with low acidity, sweet tannin and a corpulent, nicely textured, long mouthfeel, it should hit its prime in 2-3 years, and last for 2+ decades. (Jun 2011)

Had been saving this bottle from trip to Napa, paid $58 at the time. Very smooth with long finish. Lovely nose with hits of leather. Paired with beef Wellington for Christmas dinner, was a real treat.

...Enticing, sweet aromas of cassis, cappuccino, chocolate and mint. Suave and silky in the mouth, with sweet, pliant flavors of dark berries and chocolate. Offers lovely texture and persistence, finishing with dusty but ripe tannins. Distinctly user... Stephen Tanzer's IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2001 Plumpjack Cabernet Sauvignon Estate 750ml
