    (with 2% petit verdot): Very ripe aromas and flavors of cassis, licorice and bitter chocolate. Sweet, generous and easygoing, offering good energy and plenty of immediate appeal. The dusty tannins will not get in the way of enjoying this wine right now.

    The 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon is a beautiful wine. Freshly cut flowers, dark red berries, mint and crushed rocks are some of the nuances that flow from this highly articulated, engaging red. Despite its richness and obvious size, the 2009 retains remarkable freshness, clarity and precision. This is a terrific showing. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2024.

    A solid effort. Took about 45 minutes to open up. A bit of a bite at the end but otherwise smooth and refined. Raspberries upfront with a hint of leather.

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.
