Plumpjack 2014 Syrah, Napa Valley


96 Points - limited                             
New release of Plumpjack's Syrah- limited.  The 2013 PlumpJack Syrah comes from the Stagecoach Vineyard located in the eastern hills above Oakville and Lee Hudson’s Henry Drive Vineyard in Napa’s Carneros District.

96 Points Robert Parker:  "The 2014 Syrah is gorgeous. Loads of flowery blackberry and cassis fruit, along with spice and forest floor jump from the glass of this killer Syrah. It is no wimpy wine at 15.4% alcohol, but the complex aromatics, the stunningly full-bodied, rich flavors of blue and black fruits, the nicely integrated acidity, tannin and wood, all make for a compelling example of Syrah to drink over the next 10-15 years – perhaps even longer. This is a great effort...This famed estate on the Oakville crossroads, which was once the Villa Mt. Eden winery, where Nils Venge made a succession of profound wines in the 1970s, is now owned by the Getty family and called Plumpjack. These are always among my favorite wines in Napa Valley, as they are consistently well-crafted and represent the best of the Oakville corridor."

Grown in Napa, but inspired by the Northern Rhone style, this Syrah exhibits a smoky, gamey nose layered with white and black pepper, with complementary notes of blueberry and raspberry aromatics. Well structured, the palate is full of bright raspberries, black pepper and smoke. This wine has beautiful finesse, great concentration and vibrant acidity.
