Plumpjack Syrah Napa Valley 2010

Winemaker's Notes:

The 2010 Syrah reveled in the cool growing season which encouraged a beautifully aromatic and supple wine. Raspberry cordial, white pepper, smoked meat, and ripe plums leap from the glass as flavors of blackberry, boysenberry, star anise, and vanilla finesse the palate. With an alluringly precise finish that develops even as the next sip is taken, the 2010 PlumpJack Syrah brings you in for more. Not yet reviewed; 2009 vintage rated 90 points by California Grapevine: Dark ruby; attractive, big, rich, plummy blackberry fruit aroma with hints of smoked meat, leather, and black pepper; full body; big, extracted, toasty, blackberry fruit flavors with a full, rich mouthfeel; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Needs a few more years of aging. Very highly recommended. 15.2% alcohol; 1,312 cases; 100% Syrah; released Fall 2011.

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