    April 28, 2019 - Was this the last of the screw tops from Plumpjack?
    Decanted for 2 hours. Still a very dark purple. Wonderful nose of dark fruits and a bit of tobacco and leather. Perfectly balanced on the palette. I have just one bottle left and will be looking for more.

    December 31, 2018 - 15 year vertical. 2008: One cannot say enough about this wine. Deep garnet. The nose is complex: blackberry, plum, currant, sage, coffee, subtle oak. It all carries over into the palette, with a pleasing minerality and long finish. This is perfectly structured and balanced. This is what a Cabernet should be.

    August 3, 2018 - This is what I called a BIG BOY. Damm, huge nose, strong perfume with tabaco dust. The body is bold and the finish endless!!!!

    May 11, 2018 - 2008 PLUMPJACK CABERNET SAUVIGNON RESERVE NAPA- Magnum; as far as I can remember, I’ve never had a PJ reserve cab and this was a good one to start with; young and vibrant, yet mellow and approachable, this had lovely fresh blackberry and black currant fruit with spice and milk chocolate accents; it was full bodied, had a silky smooth mouthfeel aided by the soft tannins and held on for a welcomed long finish.

    April 20, 2018 - 2008 Napa Cab Retrospective (Fresno): Tasted blind; one was cork and the other screw cap. Scored cork 92-93 and SC 92. Notes were similar, ripe fruit, spice and a pleasant menthol note/sensation.
