Wine Review: This very dark garnet colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Ramey is Excellent. It opens with an attractive blueberry and eucalyptus bouquet with a hint of boysenberry and faint cedar. On the palate, this wine is full bodied, balanced and fruit forward. The flavor profile is a complex blend of boysenberry and black raspberry with notes of spice. I also detected hints of blueberry, black licorice, minerality, mocha and faint oak. The finish is dry and its moderate well managed tannins fade away nicely. This Cab is very food friendly and would pair well with filet mignon. Enjoy – Ken

Winemaker Notes: The seventh vintage of this blend. It represents our version of a winemaker's wine. "Annum" is the one red wine we make each year that allows us to select from a range of prestigious vineyards to make the best blend possible that vintage.

Your comments on this wine:





Cork Lore: A cork tree must be at least 25 years old before its bark can be harvested the first time, but it cannot be used for wine stoppers until the third harvest. Cork trees can be stripped of their bark no more than every 9 to 12 years. In one harvest, enough cork is removed from the average tree to make 4,000 wine stoppers.
