New release of Plumpjack's Oakville Estate Cabernet - limited.

98 Points Jeb Dunnuck: "More pure crème de cassis, toasted spices, camphor, graphite, and a touch of acacia flowers emerge from the 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve, which is a much smaller production cuvée from the estate's vineyard in Oakville. Full-bodied, brilliantly textured, and flawlessly balanced, it has ripe tannins, integrated acidity, and the vintage's more pure, elegant, seamless character front and center. It will probably merit a triple-digit rating in 5-6 years and keep for three decades in cold cellars. This is pure class."

99 Points Robert Parker: 
 "The 2018 Cabernet Sauvignon Reserve is a blend of 96% Cabernet Sauvignon and 4% Petit Verdot. Deep garnet-purple in color, the nose needs a little coaxing before revealing a gorgeous melange of baked black cherries, boysenberries and warm cassis plus hints of mocha, black olives, smoked meats and lilacs with a waft of pencil shavings. The concentrated, hedonic black fruit layers expand in the full-bodied mouth, revealing beautiful floral and savory layers with a firm frame of firm, exquisitely ripe tannins and seamless freshness, finishing with epic length...

...This enviable estate on the Oakville Corridor, sandwiched between Rudd Estate and Screaming Eagle, and overlooked by Dalla Valle and a handful of other blue bloods is the former Villa Mt. Eden estate made famous by Nils Venge in the 1970s. The great wines of Villa Mt. Eden are well represented by what Plumpjack has accomplished since they took over this estate. There are two cuvees, the basic Cabernet Sauvignon and a Reserve offering."
