    Complex spice, cedary oak, game meat, dried currant and herbal sage notes fan out the flavors. Tight and concentrated, this is a touch rustic and slightly nutty on the finish.

    The 2006 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate (5,800 cases of 100% Cabernet Sauvignon) has closed down since last year, but with additional time, it should be an impressive effort. A beautiful inky/ruby/purple color is followed by concentrated creme de cassis fruit intermixed with graphite, charcoal, and spicy new oak notes. This medium to full-bodied, long, structured, muscular Cabernet needs 2-3 years of cellaring, and should drink well for two decades.

The PlumpJack Winery's Estate Vineyard, founded in 1881, is nestled in the nape of the Vaca Mountain range on the eastern side of the Napa Valley. The main winery building, which is still in use, was completed in 1883. Vineyards have covered the Oakville site since the late 1800s.

In the more recent past, the facility where PlumpJack now makes its wine was the original home of Villa Mt. Eden Winery. Begun in 1973 by proprietors James and Anne McWilliams, the vineyard and winery rapidly gained attention for producing dynamic, long-lived wines, with particular emphasis on the estate and reserve Cabernet Sauvignons. Continuing in that tradition by producing the finest Cabernet Sauvignon is PlumpJack Winery's ultimate goal.
