PlumpJack’s 2012 Merlot comes from the winery’s estate Oak Knoll vineyard in Napa Valley, nestled up to the Mayacamas Mountain Range on the westside of the valley. The mild climate and alluvial soils here allow the Merlot grapes to develop rich raspberry and black cherry aromatics with layers of chocolate and deep, intense flavors in a full, robust, concentrated palate that’s still elegant with a wonderful natural acidity. Dark ruby in color, the PlumpJack 2012 Merlot opens with a very aromatic bouquet of blackberry, blueberry and raspberry. On the palate, this wine is full-bodied and rich with notes of boysenberry, black plum, mocha, spice, and licorice. This is a very supple, inviting Merlot that would pair deliciously with filet mignon. Robert Parker says “This is serious Merlot that even Cabernet lovers will get excited about.”
