"From the Oakville estate of Plumpjack (the former Villa Mt. Eden Vineyard made famous by Nils Venge, whom I believe is still a consultant), the 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate has a gorgeous nose of creme de cassis, licorice, and graphite. Flawlessly put together, with delicate tannins, full body, but elegance combined with power, this impressively pure, layered, multi-dimensional Cabernet Sauvignon is already drinkable. It need another 5-7 years to gain complexity, but this is a superb 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon to be drunk now or cellared for two decades."

" Winemaker Anthony Biagi compares our 2008 PlumpJack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon (98% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Petit Verdot) quite favorably to both the 2002 and 2007 vintages as it possess the opulent flavor profiles of the 2007 with the mouth coating tannins of the 2002. He describes this wine as possessing pungent aromas of Blackberry, Plums, Black Cherry and Minerals. They are followed on the palate with flavors of Blackberry Pie, Hoisin, Black Olive and Black Cherry. This wine is more approachable at this point then the 2007 with what I feel are sweeter tannins. It will be at its best 5-7 years from now but will go an easy 15 years." ~ Winery notes
