The 2015 Merlot, which is in bottle, has a slightly denser ruby/purple color, far more appeal, with deeper, richer, sweeter fruit, a lot more sucrosity, plenty of black cherry and blackcurrant fruit, a hint of white chocolate and a heady finish. Both of these are 100% Merlot, but the 2015 is head and shoulders above the 2014.
The 2015 vintage gave the PlumpJack Merlot aromas of velvety raspberry, bright blackberry, sweet plum, white flowers and wild mushroom crostini. The barrels sprinkle in campfire s’mores and warming spices. The palate is delicate upon entry and crescendos to full-bodied and rich on the mid-palate. The bright acid and beautiful structure give this wine great tension, relentless balance and persistence on the finish.
