Review

Ripe and suave in feel, with waves of red currant, cherry and plum preserves gliding through, laced with subtle savory, cedar and floral hints, providing lift through the stylish finish. A minerally echo adds range. Distinctive. Best from 2021 through 2032.

Review

The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum is soft, pliant and inviting, featuring plenty of bold fruit and plush, silky tannins that add to its considerable appeal. This is another racy, up-front Napa Valley wine from David Ramey.

Review

This blends in a healthy 17% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec, the grapes from several of the valley's appellations, including Oakville and Mount Veeder. In total, the wine is intense in power and tightly wound grip, with textured layers of tar, cocoa powder and black currant. It has years to go in bottle. Enjoy 2025–2030.

Review

Ramey's 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum is rich, powerful and unctuous. Super-ripe red and black cherry, smoke, licorice, leather and tobacco are front and center. This is another creamy, voluptuous wine that will likely drink well with minimal cellaring. The Annum is deep, dense and imposing, as so many wines are in this vintage.
