Plumpjack Chardonnay Napa Valley Reserve 2008
Plumpjack Merlot Napa Valley 2007
Historically, Plumpjack has been available only in restaurants. Looks like they, along with a few others, have finally figured out that restaurants are having a pretty hard time. Unlike many other “restaurant-only” wines, Plumpjack is good stuff. Robert Parker gave the Merlot a pre-release score of 89-92 in December 2008. Neither has a final review. We have 12 bottles of each. This time, we aren’t asking you to limit your purchase. And, as always, we’ll hold wine for you if you’ll email us. I’ll send out an email when it’s gone.
