Jeb Dunnuck 94 Points: ” A beautiful Merlot, the 2019 from PlumpJack offers everything you could want from this variety with its plump, fleshy, medium to full-bodied profile as well as terrific aromatics of black cherries, darker berries, leafy herbs, spring flowers, and a touch of chocolate. It’s ready to go yet should continue delivering the goods over the coming decade.”
Vinous 94 Points: “PlumpJack’s 2019 Merlot offers terrific tension and grip. In 2019, the Merlot includes fruit from a site in Carneros, and that seems to add an extra dimension of energy that is quite appealing. Dried herbs, leather, tobacco, and crushed flowers lend striking aromatic nuance to this savory, beautifully delineated wine. The 2019 is super distinctive, not to mention a real pleasure to taste.”
Winemaker Notes: ” The 2019 vintage has a beautiful and complex nose black cherry, boysenberry jam, plum, and fresh cut flowers come through first, then cardamom, nutmeg, and a touch of cocoa and vanilla enter giving the nose depth and intrigue. The palate too has great depth and complex flavors of red cherries, muddled berries, and dried herbs, with a creamy texture and silky tannin complimented by fresh, vibrant acidity. Blend: 97% Merlot, 3% Cabernet Sauvignon”
