The 2007 PlumpJack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a testament to the wonderful quality of the 2007 vintage. Explosive aromas of black cherry, plum, blackberry, chocolate and vanilla are followed by flavors of plum sauce, chocolate, coca powder and plums. Extremely enjoyable now this 2007 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon will benefit from cellaring for the near term and last 10-15 years.
"The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is a 100% Cabernet Sauvignon cuvee from Plumpjack’s Oakville ranch, where Nils Venge once made the famed Cabernet Sauvignons under the Villa Mt. Eden label. (The 1974s and 1978s are still going strong.) Floral notes intermixed with creme de cassis, white chocolate, plum, and licorice characteristics are followed by a wine with supple tannins, fabulous concentration, a multilayered mouthfeel, and a finish that lasts 40+ seconds. This incredible Cabernet can be drunk now or cellared for 20-25 years."
The Wine Advocate
"This rich, full-bodied and creamy-textured red exhibits dried currant, spice, mineral and leather scents that unfold to reveal spice, plum and wild berry notes and ending with drying tannins."
"Made from the estate, in the center of Oakville, this fancy Cabernet is very ripe and oaky, and solidly in the opulent, flamboyant cult style. It floods the mouth with melted blackberries, cherries, raspberries, cocoa and sweet new oak, framed in tannins that are rich and refined."
