PlumpJack
Oakville Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 2015
SALE $ 124.99

NOT AVAILABLE TO SAMPLE


96 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
A classic vintage in the making, the 2015 wines are voluptuous, racy and textured –cornerstones of PlumpJack's Oakville Estate Cabernet Sauvignon. Ripe raspberry and wildblack cherry fragrances flow from the glass, followed by wispy notes of blueberry pie, dried sage leaves, and vanilla bean. Rich raspberry jam and baked cherry pie tastes take center stage of this dark, structured, full-bodied wine and are chased by secondary flavor components of mint chocolate, iron shavings, blackberry cobbler, and French vanilla mocha latte. Despite the hot growing season and another consecutive drought year, the wine possess an energizing freshness while simultaneously balancing the wines natural acidity and density – creating a wine worthy of aging twenty-plus years but capable of enjoying now.

DAOU Vineyards
Cabernet Sauvignon 2016
OUR PRICE $22.99
94 Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
Tasted from barrel, the 2016 Cabernet Sauvignon Estate reveals notes of cassis, blackberries, licorice and pencil shavings. On the palate, it's full-bodied, ample and powerful, amply endowed with fine structuring tannins and concluding with a long, dry finish. After the Merlot-, Cabernet Franc- and Malbec-based cuvées, this represents a return to the authority of Cabernet Sauvignon.

Siduri
Willamette Valley Pinot Noir 2016
OUR PRICE $19.99
91 James Suckling
This young pinot noir shows aromas of raspberries and violets. Medium to full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Some crushed stone and concrete undertones.
90 Vinous
Deep red. Black raspberry, cherry pit, succulent herbs and rose oil on the pungent nose. Bitter cherry and floral pastille flavors unfold slowly while picking up peppery spice and licorice accents. Shows good depth and structure and finishes subtly sweet and long, featuring youthfully chewy tannins and a touch of cracked pepper.
90 Wine Spectator
Sleek and vibrant, with lively cherry and stony mineral aromas and layered, snappy raspberry and peppery sweet anise flavors.

Mer Soleil

Never seeing the inside of an oak barrel, Mer Soleil SILVER is a pure, clean expression of Chardonnay. It is fermented and aged in a combination of stainless steel and small concrete tanks imported from Burgundy, France. Fresh from start to finish, this wine features aromas of flower blossoms and crisp pears. It is round and layered on the palate, with vibrant acidity and depth.
