We shocked our friends when opening a bottle of 2011 California Cabernet Sauvignon after the 1962 La Tour Haut Brion. Our reasoning, which proved correct, was the desire, if not need, for some tannins and vibrant fruit. Et voila, Ramey delivered.
Opaque purple on the eye. One might even think a Malbec. Aromas of liquorice, vibrant berries, espresso and milk chocolate.
Broad shoulders with sweet, well-developed, nicely gripping tannins and wonderful vibrant red fruits. Tres yummy.
No doubt will benefit from several more years in the cellar.
