2011 Cabernet Sauvignon, Annum, Napa Valley
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
The outstanding 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum (75% Cabernet Sauvignon and 25% Cabernet Franc) performed well. Notes of black olive tapenade gives the wine a certain herbaceousness and greenness, but it also possesses a dense ruby/purple color and big, sweet nose of blackberries, black currants, licorice and underbrush. This complex, forward, precociously styled 2011 should drink well for a decade.
