Ramey Annum Cabernet Sauvignon 2011
Wine SpectatorPresents a Bordeaux-like mix of flavors, weight and texture, with chewy dried berry, cedar, cigar box, black licorice, dried herb and tobacco notes. Tightens on the finish, where the flavors push through despite the tannic grip. Drink now through 2024. 628 cases made.
Wine AdvocateThe outstanding 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum (75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc) performed well. Notes of black olive tapenade gives the wine a certain herbaceousness and greenness, but it also possesses a dense ruby/purple color and big, sweet nose of blackberries, black currants, licorice and underbrush. This complex, forward, precociously styled 2011 should drink well for a decade.
