The wines of PlumpJack represent their world-class vineyard origins with full-bodied, elegant expression and an approachable style. Winemaker Aaron Miller selects the finest fruit from our 42-acre estate in Oakville, a site that runs from the rocky foothills of the Vaca mountain range to the deep clay soils of Napa River's alluvial plain on the valley floor.

Wine AdvocateThe 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve Estate Oakville is 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot aged in 100% new French oak. This is perfection and an absolutely amazing effort. The wine is dense purple with sweet tannin, oodles of blueberry and blackberry fruit caressed by toasty new oak, and a full-bodied multi-dimensional mouthfeel -- akin to a skyscraper in the mouth, but without any heaviness. The finish goes on for a good 45+ seconds, and the wine is super-pure and majestic. Truly a tour de force in Cabernet Sauvignon. Kudos to Plumpjack. Drink 2018-2040.

Wine Spectator A wine of considerable size and proportion, this is very dense, rich and focused, with an intense beam of lively, gravel-laced currant, blackberry, anise, sage and cedar flavors. Though the size of the wine merits cellar time, there's a beauty within. Best from 2020 through 2033. 700 cases made.
