Plumpjack Napa Valley Merlot 2016

$64

95 Points                                             New release of Plumpjack's Oakville Estate Merlot - limited. 95 Points Antonio Galloni (Vinous): "The 2016 Merlot is aromatically expressive and dense, a combination that is hugely appealing. Sage, mint, licorice, chocolate, lavender and black cherry jam run through this large-scaled, beautifully resonant Merlot. The interplay of elements here is really quite striking. There is quite a bit to look forward to. A dollop of Malbec rounds out the blend." 92 Points Robert Parker:  "Containing a 4% splash of Malbec, the deep purple-black colored 2016 Merlot opens with notions of chocolate-covered cherries, plum preserves, spice cake and black pepper with hints of garrigue and wild sage. Full-bodied and boldly fruited in the mouth, the juicy black fruit is well framed by rounded tannins and oodles of freshness, finishing long and spicy."

So this hit the spot. A gale force wind of plum and cherry pie aromas but seamlessly laced with flavors of cappuccino, nutmeg and a wood fired grill. Boozy but goes down easy.
