Plumpjack 2018 MerlotIn Fine Spirits
The grapes for this wine were grown in the Oak Knoll region of Napa—nestled up against the Mayacamas Mountain Range. The 2018 vintage has a beautiful and complex nose—black cherry, boysenberry jam, plum, and fresh cut flowers come through first, then cardamom, nutmeg, and a touch of cocoa and vanilla. The palate has flavors of red cherries, muddled berries, and dried herbs, with a creamy texture and silky tannin structure complimented by a fresh, vibrant acidity. Pair with lamb.
