A ridiculously smooth and rich Napa Cab, literally oozing tobacco and dark chocolate, cedar and tarry earth. Beautifully round, hiding its alcohol, finishing delightfully long with charred cherry oak. Miles to go, but no reason to wait.

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. (Antonio Galloni, Vinous, March 2018)

Deep ruby color. Aromas of cherry, dried lavender, baking spices and dark chocolate. Gorgeous black and red fruit on the palate with a toasted oak finish. Fantastic!

Round 3 at SFG - massively dark big cab. Can taste the depth and very good blackberry and decent amount of oak. Knock your socks off.
