Plumpjack Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon 2014

Winemaker's Notes:

"The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot) is a nearly impenetrable purple black color, and offers a shockingly intense and compelling set of aromatics, consisting of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, charcoal, incense and spring flowers. Extremely full, massive, and highly extracted, but not broodish or rustic, this is a sensational wine, with loads of blue and black fruits, great definition, vibrant acidity, and ripe but substantial tannins. This is a 40- to 50-year wine, which is somewhat unusual for this vintage. It is approachable now, but give it 7-8 years of cellaring at minimum." - Wine Advocate *(98+ Points)*

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
