2021 PlumpJack Merlot, Napa Valley (1.5L)

2021 PlumpJack Merlot, Napa Valley (1.5L)

Impressions “The 2021 PlumpJack Merlot is complex and layered. The nose leads with cherry, raspberry, and boysenberry, followed by sweet earth and dried herbs. The oak barrels bring depth to the nose by infusing notes of cinnamon, nutmeg, pie crust, vanilla, caramel, and hickory. These flavors carry through to the palate, which has a silky texture, firm yet plush tannin, and lively acidity. This wine has great length and finishes with an impression of espresso and baker’s chocolate.” — Winemaker Aaron Miller

Vintage The 2021 season was extraordinary in its own way, with Napa Valley receiving merely a third of its average rainfall. Our vines were stressed, and the yields sparse, lending way to fruit characterized by heightened flavor concentration. The result: wines imbued with stunning intensity, precision, and grace.
