Plumpjack Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Estate 2009

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful wine. Freshly cut flowers, dark red berries, mint and crushed rocks are some of the nuances that flow from this highly articulated, engaging red. Despite its richness and obvious size, the 2009 retains remarkable freshness, clarity and precision. This is a terrific showing. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2024. Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

Anticipated maturity: 2013-2024.I have been following Plumpjack since first visiting the winery nearly a decade ago. This is a stunning set of wines from winemaker Tony Biagi, who has succeeded in achieving both astonishing richness and finesse pretty much across the board. ImpressionsThe 2009 PlumpJack Estate Cabernet is a testament to the impressive terrior of our estate vineyard. While many fought the inclement weather our estate vineyard on the eastern side of Oakville was bathed in sunlight. Classic PlumpJack aromas of black cherry, blackberry, sage, iron filings and anise are followed on the palate with primary flavors of Bing cherry, blackberry, mocha and hints...

Likely to be the finest cabernet made by Plumpjack up to now (says Robert Parker). Sumptuous aromas of lavender, blacberry, blueberry and cassis followed by an extraordinary density of fruit and a full bodied mouthfeel. A 99 PPOINT WINE ADVOCATE WINE.
