Plumpjack Merlot 2015

Winemaker's Notes:

*92 points* Vinous / Antonio Galloni"PlumpJack's 2015 Merlot is forward and juicy, both qualities that make it a delicious wine to drink pretty much upon release. Inky blue/purplish fruit, lavender, spice and mint are all pushed forward."*90 points* The Wine Advocate"The 2015 Merlot, which is in bottle, has a slightly denser ruby/purple color, far more appeal, with deeper, richer, sweeter fruit, a lot more sucrosity, plenty of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, a hint of white chocolate and a heady finish. Both of these are 100% Merlot, but the 2015 is head and shoulders above the 2014."

Vintage: 2010 03/01/2013

The 2010 Merlot bursts from the glass with gorgeous freshness. White flowers, spices, chocolate, mocha and sweet red berries jump out from this exuberant, fleshy Merlot. At the same time, the cool, late growing season helped preserve vivacity and ver... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate. A Merlot wine from California in USA. 2010 Plumpjack Merlot 750ml
