96 points Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

  Composed of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate gives a deep garnet-purple color and fragrant nose of crushed black cherries and blueberries with suggestions of violets, dark chocolate and cinnamon stick plus a waft of cigar box. The voluptuous, full-bodied palate layers on the fruit and spice flavors, framed by plush tannins and culminating in a very long, fruit-driven finish. Decadent stuff! (LPB)   (10/2017)

  Plumpjack's Cabernet Sauvignon Estate is fabulous. Super-ripe red cherry, plum, lavender, spice and menthol are all beautifully knit together in this lush, voluptuous Oakville Cabernet Sauvignon. Winemaker Aaron Miller has done a tremendous job retaining a good bit of freshness here. Rich, sensual and enveloping, the 2015 is an absolutely stellar wine in this vintage. Don't miss it. This is a superb example of the year at its best. (AG)   (3/2018)

  This is a complex, concentrated and crowd-pleasing wine, blended with 7% Petit Verdot and 5% Malbec. Pencil shavings, crayon wax and a juicy core of blackberry pie give it a savory richness, succulence and length, with enough underlying acidity to keep it fresh and behaved despite its density and structure.

  A blend of 88% Cabernet Sauvignon, 7% Petit Verdot and the rest Malbec brought up in 80% new French oak, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate tastes like a mini-reserve with its vibrant, fresh, clean personality. Blueberries, cassis, vanilla bean and spring flower notes all emerge from this medium to full-bodied, silky, incredibly elegant 2015 that has integrated acidity, a supple, charming style, and sweet tannin. It’s ready to go but will keep for 15+ years.   (12/2017)

A classic vintage in the making, the 2015 wines are voluptuous, racy and textured –cornerstones of PlumpJack's Oakville Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripe raspberry and wild black cherry fragrances flow from the glass, followed by wispy notes of blueberry pie, dried sage leaves, and vanilla bean. Rich raspberry jam and baked cherry pie tastes take center stage of this dark, structured, full-bodied wine and are chased by secondary flavor components of mint chocolate, iron shavings, blackberry cobbler, and French vanilla mocha latte. Despite the hot growing season and another consecutive drought year, the wine possesses an energizing freshness while simultaneously balancing the wines natural acidity and density – creating a wine worthy of aging twenty-plus years but capable of enjoying now.
Pairs nicely with a filet mignon or your favorite steak.
