The 2010 PlumpJack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon is a dense, opulent wine that honors its Oakville terroir with great structure and balance. Notes of blackberry and cherry on the nose carry over onto the palate, and intriguing threads of black pepper, mint, vanilla and spice throughout the aromas and flavors enhance the wine's complexity.
"A gorgeous core of juicy red fruit announces the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2010 stands out for its expressive, supple personality. There is more than enough fruit for the 2010 to drink well early. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the more approachable wines of the vintage. It should drink well pretty much upon release. Raspberry jam, flowers and cinnamon add lift on the floral, perfumed finish. This is a lovely showing from Plumpjack. In 2010 the new oak, 80%, is a little more evident than is typically the case. Anticipated maturity: 2015-2025."
The Wine Advocate
"Good deep, bright ruby. Deep aromas of cassis and smoky, chocolatey oak. Dense, concentrated and very ripe, with an exotic creaminess to the sweet flavors of black raspberry and spicecake. Bright acidity gives the wine shape and considerable sex appeal. Finishes with ripe, building tannins that coat the front teeth."
