98+ Points - limited New release of Plumpjack's Oakville Estate Cabernet - limited. 98+ Points Robert Parker: "The 2014 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (98% Cabernet Sauvignon and 2% Petit Verdot) is a nearly impenetrable purple black color, and offers a shockingly intense and compelling set of aromatics, consisting of blueberry and blackberry liqueur, charcoal, incense and spring flowers. Extremely full, massive, and highly extracted, but not broodish or rustic, this is a sensational wine, with loads of blue and black fruits, great definition, vibrant acidity, and ripe but substantial tannins. This is a 40- to 50-year wine, which is somewhat unusual for this vintage. It is approachable now, but give it 7-8 years of cellaring at minimum... ...This enviable estate on the Oakville Corridor, sandwiched between Rudd Estate and Screaming Eagle, and overlooked by Dalla Valle and a handful of other blue bloods is the former Villa Mt. Eden estate made famous by Nils Venge in the 1970s. The great wines of Villa Mt. Eden are well represented by what Plumpjack has accomplished since they took over this estate. There are two cuvees, the basic Cabernet Sauvignon and a Reserve offering."

Reminds me of that time I met an Ethiopian Lyft driver. Seems like he’s been here for 7 years, but I’m so glad he’s here. Nice plum and black raspberry. Thanks BFR
