Plumpjack Cabernet Sauvignon Oakville Reserve 2001

Winemaker's Notes:

Vineyard… Our 2001 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is what we deemed to be the best lots from our Estate vineyard here in the heart of Oakville. Harvest… Took place on October 5th & October 8th, 2003. The blocks that made up the Reserve were picked at an average of 26.1 brix, a titratable acidity of .50 grams/100ml and a pH of 3.81 Fermentation… Ensued after a 24 hour cold soak at 55 degrees. The fermentation lasted for 11 days and reached a maximum temperature of 90 degrees. Aging… Took place in 100% new French oak cooperage. Malolactic fermentation took place in barrel. The wine was racked twice the first year. Subsequent rackings took place based on the taste of the wine. The wine was aged for 30 months in barrel. Bottling… Took place on April 16th, 2004 Our Thoughts… Showcasing a world-class vineyard and a truly remarkable vintage, this 2001 Reserve Cabernet is intensely rich and seamlessly balanced. Primary aromas of blackberry, plums, vanilla beans and cinnamon arise from the glass. Upon opening, this wine will delicately lace these primary aromas with those of cedar, chocolate and Asian five spice. True to our Oakville vineyard, flavors of currant, cassis, blackberry, cocoa powder and vanilla coat the palate and delight the senses. Exhibiting firm but supple tannins, this wine can be consumed now but will continue to gracefully age for the next 15 plus years.

Closer to home, San Francisco composer and philanthropist, Gordon Getty, wrote an opera he called "Plump Jack." The fun-loving and irreverent spirit of PlumpJack clearly excited the sensibilities of Gordon's close friend and business associate, Gavin Newsom. Read less

The low rating by the poster before me must have been due to the price. This vintage was well balanced, smooth and everything i'd want from a full-bodied cab.

I opened this wine on Christmas Eve 2005 during dinner with family and friends. My girlfriend and I DIDN'T SHARE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! We hid it!! It was FANTASTIC.! THANK-YOU SIR, MAY I HAVE ANOTHER????? I actually found it at a HY-VEE grocery store on 165th and Maple in Omaha, Nebraska! The gentleman who ran the department sold it to me on sale for around 200.00. Boy would I like to find some more!! PEACE TO ALL! CC P.S. Found notes on back of bottle...was on sale for 218.00 and I talked him into the CC discount of 185.00! (Must have thought I was in MX) Yeah! What a great price for a magnificent wine... Thank-you God!!

Perhaps the finest wine yet produced at Plumpjack, the 2001 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve reveals a saturated deep purple color as well as a promising nose of creme de cassis intermixed with smoke, lead pencil shavings, melted licorice, and minerals.
