This beautiful wine includes 9% Cabernet Franc that gives a lift of floral violet and grainy cedar. Classic all around in its etchings of coconut shavings, graphite, spice and dust, the fruit is additionally savory in bright red currant and a crunch of cassis, with an underpinning of soft, succulent blackberry. (VB)
A Cab with tension and brightness plus lots of rose petal, blueberry, currant and lavender character. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh finish. Drink and enjoy on release or hold for a few years as it comes more together.
Deep garnet-purple in color, the 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum has a nose of crushed red and black currants, black berry preserves and bay leaves with a hint of cigar box. Medium-bodied, taut and with a good core of muscular fruit, it has a firm frame of chewy tannins and a long, cedar-laced finish. (LPB)
The 2013 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum is one of the richer wines in David Ramey's range, but I don’t see it as meaningfully more complex than the straight Cabernet Sauvignon, perhaps because the 100% new oak is a bit pronounced at this stage. Most of the fruit for the Annum is sourced from hillside vineyards in Mount Veeder, Oakville and Rutherford. (AG)
Broad, rich and expansive, with a solid core of dark berry, currant, mineral, cedary oak and fresh-turned earth, picking up red and black licorice details on the long, layered finish. Drink now through 2029. (JL)
*One Star* As a group, Ramey's Cabernets tend to the somewhat rustic side of things and are, to varying extents, built upon fairly tannic foundations. This one fits the mold and favors extract over grace with an edge of bitter chocolate to its dense, yet somewhat withdrawn fruit, and its decidedly astringent finish is trimmed with a touch of peppery heat. It has plenty of fruity muscle, but it is hampered by sinewy coarseness as well, and, if five to ten years of age will work in its favor, the wine will never be the picture of refinement and grace.
