The spectacular 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a multi-appellation blend revealing classic Cabernet Sauvignon notes of forest floor, unsmoked cigar tobacco, creme de cassis and vanillin, a dense, full-bodied mouthfeel and a long, heady finish. Consume it over the next 15-20 years. (RP)
Inky ruby. Lively dark berry and cherry scents are complemented by licorice, fruitcake and vanilla, with a spicy nuance adding lift. Sweet, palate-coating blueberry and cherry liqueur flavors become more energetic with air and pick up a sexy floral nuance. Distinctly powerful yet lithe, with zesty spice and mineral notes adding bite to the long, subtly tannic finish. (ST)
Picking a favorite from the Ramey Cabernet bunch is as usual no easy task and the choice is one that will be ultimately based on whether precision or an extra bit of depth is preferred. This one succeeds on the strength of its wonderfully incisive varietal fruit and its slightly more mannerly stance. It is structured and solid without being brawny, and it show lots of complexity now with more to come once it has aged. It would seem a shame if its cork were to be pulled before and fewer than six to eight years have passed.
Bordeaux-like and austere, presenting a mix of cedary oak and tobacco leaf. Firm, rich and full-bodied, this is slow to unravel, with a cling of oak, ending with drying tannins. Best from 2014 through 2024. 215 cases made. (Web Only—2013)
