Plume Cabernet Sauvignon 2010


This cabernet sauvignon from Plume in the Napa Valley has largely everything I want in a $30 wine, although this price is admittedly in Canadian dollars and so won't benefit from Australia's panoply of wine taxes.  It has aromatics of black cherry and plums, but it is the palate that sings.  Here, there is a textured structure with velvety tannins, fleshy extract, balance, medium to long length and flavours reminding of blackcurrant and blackberry.  This is a very good wine that I have no hesitation in recommending.  Very Good
