Subject: Altamura and PlumpJack Cabs - Great Scores
94 POINT HARD TO FIND CALIFORNIA CABERNETS.
NAPA VALLEY, CA
94 WINE SPECTATOR Striking, rich and opulent, elegant and refined,
with ripe, dense blackberry, melted black licorice and touches of cinnamon
and baking spice. Ends with fine-grained, detailed tannins.
Best from 2013 through 2027.
94 WINE ADVOCATE A gorgeous core of juicy red fruit announces
the 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon. The 2010 stands out for its expressive,
supple personality. There is more than enough fruit for the 2010 to
drink well early. The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the more approachable
wines of the vintage. It should drink well pretty much upon release.
Raspberry jam, flowers and cinnamon add lift on the floral, perfumed
finish. This is a lovely showing from Plumpjack. In 2010 the new oak,
80%, is a little more evident than is typically the case.
Anticipated maturity: 2015 - 2025.
