Plumpjack Cabernet Sauvignon Estate Cabernet Sauvignon 1996

Opaque and brooding, nose was a bit restrained, but with some time there was the usual suspects of tar and red & black fruits. The palate had shown a medium bodied mouthfeel with some class, but always seemed kicked down a notch. Quiet and refined, there was nothing that screamed loudy. Balanced and nicely structured. There was black currant, blackcherry, raspberry, leather, soy, and a touch of menthol...just a touch. A intertwined tannin and acid level that acted like a tight wire, but not as taut as it could be. Theres a little play and one senses the balance a bit fragile for it. Feminine and pretty though. Decent finish.

Sampled 01/01/10. A wine with plenty of black fruits up front and through mid palate, it just does not linger on the finish. A very simple wine that is well made and has plenty of life left in it.
