A Great Line Up! Always plush, sexy and delicious, this line up is perfect for gatherings.
PlumpJack 3 Pack includes 1 bottle each of the following wines:
2019 PlumpJack Reserve Chardonnay Napa Valley (screwcap) WSI94+ 2019 PlumpJack Chardonnay is simply one of theirbest yet. This wine is so layered and complex that it can take some time to unpack. The nose opens with stone fruit and mango, which gives way to lemon and lime zest with green pear. Then come floral notes of orange blossom and honeysuckle. Under all of this, there is a warm, sweet baking spice to bring even more intrigue. The palate has citrus, white peach, pomelo, and lychee flavors. The texture is reminiscent of a creamy custard with a lively acidity and freshness that is balanced by a structured, almost grapefruit pithy, bite on the lengthy finish.
2018 PlumpJack Merlot Napa Valley JD95 WSI94+ This is pure class and one heck of a great Merlot as well as a value. Enjoy bottles any time over the coming 7-8 years, if not upwards of a decade or more. The 2018 Merlot is an attractive wine, but it also a bit stern in the early going, with tannins that are surprisingly forbidding. It will be interesting to see if those tannins soften over time, as there is terrific purity in the black cherry, chocolate and spice flavors. A velvety, plush mouthfeel, rich round berry flavors and notes of mocha, chocolate and black cassis intermingle. Stunning! 94% merlot, 4% Cabernet Sauvignon, 2% Malbec.
2018 PlumpJack Syrah Napa Valley JD97 A ripe, sexy Syrah from the Napa Valley, the 2018 Syrah sports a deep, opaque purple color as well as a powerful bouquet of blue fruits, peppery herbs, spring flower, bouquet garni, and a touch of gaminess. Reminding me of a classic Côte Rôtie (but on steroids), it hits the palate with full-bodied richness, a seamless, layered textured, gorgeous purity of fruit, and a blockbuster of a finish. This singular, straight-up gorgeous Syrah is going to be prime drinking over the coming 8-10 years, although there’s no need to delay gratification.
PlumpJack Winery sits squarely in the heart of Napa Valley’s renowned Oakville region, surrounded by a 42-acre estate vineyard highly-regarded for the quality of its Cabernet Sauvignon. Both their winery building and their vineyard date back to the 1800s, when winemaking pioneers first took advantage of a unique position on the valley floor. The east side of their vineyard lies along the foothills of the Vaca mountain range and yields grapes with the kind of bold fruit character that comes from well-drained hillside soils. To the west, their estate lies in the Napa River flood zone. Here, their vines take root in rich, deep clay soild, for grapes with softer, more supple varietal character.
