ROBERT PARKER RATING: 90 - 92
ROBERT PARKER REVIEW: The 1997 Cabernet Sauvignon exhibits a saturated, dense ruby/purple color, and impressive aromatics consisting of creme de cassis, pain grille, and soil scents. The wine is full-bodied, with outstanding fruit richness, fine purity, and a long, spicy, well-balanced finish. Already more accessible than the more noticeably tannic 1996, the 1997 should age nicely for 15+ years.
This is the third vintage of Cabernet Sauvignon made from the estate grapes grown adjacent to the PlumpJack Winery facility in Oakville, California. Enjoying the aromas of this wine we find warm, sweet spice, vanilla extract, mint, bittersweet chocolate, dried black bing cherries and a hint of sweet smoke. Anything but shy when tasted, it’s firm, pleasant acidity and moderate tannins are followed by light clove, nutmeg, ripe bing cherries, boysenberry jam, mint, vanilla extract, bittersweet chocolate and coffee which transitioning to sweet, light toasted oak. The 1997 Cabernet’s lingering, complex finish gives us clear assurance that its anticipated life span of 10 to 15 years is well warranted.
