2007 Plumpjack Reserve Cabernet - 99 pts!
The virtually perfect 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve (94% Cabernet Sauvignon and 6% Petit Verdot) does indeed recall those great Villa Mt. Eden Cabernets of 1974 and 1978. An inky/purple hue is accompanied by a provocative aromatic display of blackberries, blueberries, cassis, spring flowers, and graphite. The wineâ€™s extraordinary purity, unbelievable density of fruit, and full-bodied mouthfeel result in an awesome Cabernet Sauvignon that should drink well for three decades or more. This modern day legend is the finest wine to emerge from the Plumpjack winery. Bravo! Winemaker Tony Biagia continues to fashion prodigious wines for both the Getty family and its partner, San Franciscoâ€™s mayor, Gavin Newsom. The 2007s are the most impressive group of wines Plumpjack has released to date. RP
