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.
