Plumpjack 2012 Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon
The Plumpjack Reserve Cabernet Sauvignon was sourced from the prized I & J blocks in 2012. This fruit was the first to ripen in a long, mild growing season. The fruit on the vine was dark and concentrated, and this certainly translated to the wine. The aromatics are lifted and dense, showcasing muddled raspberries, blackcurrant, and black cherry with a touch of granite, mocha, vanilla, and white flowers. The mouthfeel is rich and ample with great weight and concentration. Raspberry cordial, blackcurrant, and black cherry shine through with layers of mocha and vanilla. This wine has hefty, yet beautifully refined tannin, and a precision lent by great acidity and balance.
