Plumpjack Merlot 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

The nose reveals layers of fresh berries, dried cherry, and violets that mingle with warming spices, vanilla, cocoa, and a touch of anise. On the palate this merlot is creamy on entry, exhibits a velvety mid palate, and a lengthy finish drawn out by seamlessly integrated tannin and a vibrant, lively acidity. Initial flavors consist of fresh and dried fruits- cherry and raspberry- which are complimented by vanilla and spice, and, finally, cocoa powder on the finish. 97% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon. Alcohol 14.2%.

The fun-loving and irreverent spirit of PlumpJack clearly excited the sensibilities of Gordon's close friend and business associate, Gavin Newsom. Read less
