2008 Cabernet Sauvignon, Annum, Napa Valley
December 2011-January 2012
Vol. 37, No. 6
Medium-dark to dark ruby; attractive, intense, cedary, spicy, dark plum, cassis, and sweet black cherry fruit aroma with a hint of mocha; full body; big, dense, extracted, toasty, black cherry and blackberry flavors with notes of graphite and dark chocolate; full tannin; lingering aftertaste. Shows impressive fruit though needs some bottle aging to help resolve the prominent tannin. Very highly recommended.
