96JD – From Jeb Dunnuck, “I loved the bouquet of the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate, which has awesome purity in its classic Cabernet notes of crème de cassis, lead pencil shavings, tobacco, and earthy, gravelly mineral-like aromas and flavors. Beautifully balanced, utterly seamless, and lengthy, it’s a rock star of a base cuvée that readers should snatch up. It’s going to drink beautifully for two decades or more. This cuvée is 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot, and 5% Malbec.” 96 points Jeb Dunnuck

95WA – From Robert Parker’s The Wine Advocate, “A blend of 90% Cabernet Sauvignon, 5% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate reveals lovely, open-knit, youthful cassis, crushed black plums and black cherries scents with hints of rose hip tea, chocolate box, lavender, tobacco leaf and redcurrant jelly. The full-bodied, vibrantly fruited palate beautifully offsets the rich black fruits with red fruit and herbal sparks plus tons of freshness, finishing with a wonderfully plush texture blanketing the fruit right through the long finish.” 95 points Robert Parker’s Wine Advocate

2016 PLUMPJACK ESTATE OAKVILLE CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Winemaker’s Notes, “The seductive and alluring 2016 PlumpJack Estate Cabernet Sauvignon immediately draws you in with fruit aromas of blackberry, blueberry, and black cherry. Savory spice aromas of sage, clove, and nutmeg compliment the fruit and bring depth and complexity. These flavors carry over to the palate, which has a rich, creamy texture balanced by a crisp, fresh acid. The tannin is bold yet seamless and silky, while the persistent finish gives the impression of blackberries dusted with baker’s chocolate.”

95V – From Vinous, “The 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate beautifully expresses so much of what makes the vintage so special. Firm yet beautifully integrated tannins give the wine its spine and overall shape. Dark cherry, mocha, licorice, spice and menthol build in a deep, powerful wine endowed with quite a bit of structure. In 2016, the Estate is vibrant, powerful and loaded with personality.” 95 points Vinous
