External Reviews for Plumpjack Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Oakville Cuvée
From the Oakville estate of Plumpjack (the former Villa Mt. Eden Vineyard made famous by Nils Venge, whom I believe is still a consultant), the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has a gorgeous nose of creme de cassis, licorice, and graphite. Flawlessly put together, with delicate tannins, full body, but elegance combined with power, this impressively pure, layered, multi-dimensional Cabernet Sauvignon is already drinkable. It need another 5-7 years to gain complexity, but this is a superb 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon to be drunk now or cellared for two decades.
This rich, full-bodied and creamy-textured red exhibits dried currant, spice, mineral and leather scents that unfold to reveal spice, plum and wild berry notes and ending with drying tannins. Drink now through 2017.
The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvée from Plumpjack's Oakville ranch, where Nils Venge once made the famed Cabernet Sauvignons under the Villa Mt. Eden label. (The 1974s and 1978s are still going strong.) Floral notes intermixed with creme de cassis, white chocolate, plum, and licorice characteristics are followed by a wine with supple tannins, fabulous concentration, a multilayered mouthfeel, and a finish that lasts 40+ seconds. This incredible Cabernet can be drunk now or cellared for 20-25 years.
Made from the estate, in the center of Oakville, this fancy Cabernet is very ripe and oaky, and solidly in the opulent, flamboyant cult style. It floods the mouth with melted blackberries, cherries, raspberries, cocoa and sweet new oak, framed in tannins that are rich and refined. Bone dry, it's a flashy wine to drink now, and will mature for a decade.
The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (5,800 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has closed down since last year, but with additional time, it should be an impressive effort. A beautiful inky/ruby/purple c
Dense, rich and concentrated, with a chewy core ripe currant and blackberry fruit that teeters on syrupy. Finishes with chewy tannins and a dash of heat, but this is deep, intense and potent, with a lingering finish. Best from 2008 through 2012.
