"Medium to deep ruby, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum is made up of 80% Cabernet Sauvignon, 17% Cabernet Franc and 3% Malbec. The nose features licorice, dried leaves, cedar, vanilla pod and iron aromas with mint chocolate, cumin, cardamom, coffee bean and a core of red and black fruits—so many layers and exotic spice notes! Medium to full-bodied, it explodes with luscious fruits, chocolate and spice accents, framed by very ripe, grainy tannins and great freshness and finishing long and layered. Yes! 842 cases were made."

"The 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum is another wine in this range that really benefits from an added year in bottle. Black cherry, chocolate, mocha, leather, spice and plum give the 2015 its feeling of voluptuousness. The 100% new oak now feels much better integrated than it did a year ago. -- Antonio Galloni"

"The flagship is the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum, another wine that plays in the more elegant, pretty end of the spectrum. Notes of cassis, kirsch, cedary spice, and earth all flow to a medium to full-bodied, nicely concentrated, balanced Cabernet that has polished tannins, no hard edges, and a great finish. Give bottles a year or two and it’s going to keep for 15+ years."
