PlumpJack Merlot 2012
|Region||California, Napa Valley, Oak Knoll|
Vinous The 2012 Merlot is radiant, expressive and beautifully balanced. Mocha, plum, spice, licorice and tobacco notes all flesh out in a supple, inviting Merlot with tons of near and medium-term appeal.
Wine AdvocateThe delicious, plump, fleshy 2012 Merlot has a dense ruby/purple color, plenty of big exuberant berry fruit, full-bodied opulence and excellent purity and depth. This is serious Merlot that even Cabernet lovers will get excited about. Drink it over the next decade or more.
Wine SpectatorA hard wine to assess, with lush black cherry fruit and dense and chewy tannins. Offers accents of dried herb and toasted spice. Needs time. Best from 2017 through 2020. 2,600 cases made.
