Plumpjack Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Oakville 2013

Member Review by steve16046:

This is one of my favorite Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon's. Pours a rich violet color with nice reddish pink hues on the edges. Aromas of dark and light cherries, charred wood, cassis and some black currants. Starts off with plenty of cherry, cassis and currants. Very appealing. In the middle, some chocolate, vanilla and charred wood mix with the bright cherries. On the back end, a very complex taste of cherry, cassis, currants with plenty of chocolate and vanilla and smoked wood. This is a complex and delicious full bodied Cabernet. Leaves a long lasting taste on the palate. This is drinking well now and can age some more as well.

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!!

The inky/purple-tinged 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (500 cases) is profound stuff.

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.

Vintage: 1998 11/14/2013

The 1998 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve spent 22 months in wood of which 50% was new French. Now think about this ... the price will be 145 for the screw cap but only 135 for the cork-finished wine. The 1998 displays great texture and a sweet and expansive mid-palate in addition to a fat ripe finish. I don t really know how they pulled this off in 1998 but certainly some of the very best 1998 Cabernet Sauvignons have emerged from the Oakville corridor. The wine is full-bodied and beautifully scented with aromas of cassis plums cherries minerals and smoke. Surprisingly full-bodied with a plush texture in addition to layers of fruit and richness it is a brilliant 1998 that can be drunk upon release or cellared for 15-16 years. (Release date 9/01) Tel.
