2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Annum, Napa Valley
Robert M. Parker Jr.'s The Wine Advocate
Robert M. Parker Jr.
From a vineyard in the Oakville Corridor, just below Dalla Valle, the 2012 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum (950 cases) is a blend of 76% Cabernet Sauvignon and 24% Cabernet Franc. It boasts an opaque purple color as well as copious aromas of licorice, smoked meats, camphor, graphite and oodles of crème de cassis and coffee beans. Full-bodied with sweet tannin and a dramatic, ostentatious personality, it should drink well for 15-20 years.
