Plumpjack Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2012

Winemaker's Notes:

Our Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from our prized I & J blocks in 2012. This fruit was the first to ripen in a long, mild growing season in which we saw long hang times and beautifully ripened fruit. The fruit on the vine was dark and concentrated, and this certainly translated to the wine. The aromatics are lifted and dense, showcasing muddled raspberries, blackcurrant, and black cherry with a touch of granite, mocha, vanilla, and white flowers. The mouthfeel is rich and ample with great weight and concentration. Raspberry cordial, blackcurrant, and black cherry shine through with layers of mocha and vanilla. This wine has hefty, yet beautifully refined tannin, and a precision lent by great acidity and balance.

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
