Winemaker's Notes

"The 2002 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (a 7,500-case cuvee of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is terrific. Wonderful floral notes intermixed with blueberries, black currants, and hints of licorice and spice box are reminiscent of some of the great Villa Mt. Eden Cabernets produced here in the mid-1970s. Deep purple in color, full-bodied, with sumptuous texture and a long, concentrated finish displaying beautifully integrated acidity and tannin, this blockbuster effort should age graciously for 12-15 or more years. Kudos to Plumpjack!"
-Wine Advocate

The 2002 Estate Cabernet Sauvignon could quite possibly be the most hedonistic estate cabernet we have ever released. Pungent primary aromas of black cherry, plums, currants and roast coffee intermingle with secondary aromas of bakers' chocolate, melted licorice and blackberries. On the palate this wine exudes flavors of ripe plums, chocolate and cedar with hints of provincial herbs.

The finish is full and long with a wonderful sweetness that coats the mouth for a full 30 seconds after tasting. Even though our 2002 is so approachable now the structure and tannins will allow this wine to age gracefully for the next 10-12 years.

The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. 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,...
