2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Annum, Napa Valley
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Inky ruby. Vibrant red fruit, tobacco and floral pastille aromas are complemented by deeper-pitched notes of licorice and dark chocolate. Sweet, expansive and lively on the palate, offering juicy redcurrant and cassis flavors and a hint of rose pastille. Shows a bright, spicy quality on the incisive finish, with supple tannins contributing structure. There's 25% cabernet franc in this bottling.
