Winemaker's NotesThis third release is composed of 95% Cabernet Sauvignon from the J. Davies Vineyard on Diamond Mountain and 5% Petit Verdot from our Pedregal Vineyard in Oakville. While we try not to use too much new oak, the density of this wine allowed it to spend 26 months in all new barrels, after which it was bottled without filtration. As with all of our wines, this was fermented with native yeasts and bacteria.Critical Acclaim"The 2008 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum is a big, super-ripe wine. This is a decidedly opulent style of Cabernet. Personally, I prefer some of the other wines in the lineup, as the Annum is especially flashy in 2008. Endless layers of dark fruit crescendo to the juicy, intensely rich finish. As outstanding as this is today, it will be even better in a few years' time. The 2008 is 95% Cabernet Sauvignon and 5% Petit Verdot from J. Davies and Pedregal. Anticipated maturity: 2013-2023. "94 Points The Wine Advocate
