2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Annum, Napa Valley
Stephen Tanzer's International Wine Cellar
Inky ruby. Intensely perfumed scents of dark berries and cherry-vanilla, with exotic floral and Indian spice notes building with air. Pliant blackberry and cherry compote flavors convey excellent depth and show alluring sweetness and energy. Supple, smoky and broad on the powerful finish, with lingering notes of bitter cherry and licorice pastille.
