Winemaker's Notes

The 2006 PlumpJack Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon is a true vin d'Garde. Combining a striking balance of fruit purity, layered flavors and a thick viscous mouth feel, the 2006 PlumpJack Reserve is truly a remarkable wine that will provide years of enjoyment. Pungent aromas of black cherry, saddle leather, black olive and camphor jump from the glass. Secondary aromas of crème de cassis, tar and lavender arrive with coaxing. On the palette flavors of black cherry, bakers chocolate, soy and mineral are followed on the finish with polished but firm tannins. Drinkable with decanting now this wine will easily cellar for 15+ years!

Critical Acclaim

"Also 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, the 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Estate (only 530 cases produced) is a brilliant, but backward cuvee. Deeper, fuller-bodied, and even more stacked and packed than the Estate Cabernet Sauvignon, it reveals graphite, blueberry, blackberry, and cassis notes in its rich, full, tannic, pure personality. Anticipated maturity: 2012-2025."

The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
