I ordered the 2013 Ramey Cabernet Sauvignon from the monopoly but instead the 2012 came. Ah, well, I was thirsty and opened it anyway. A new order is made and now I am promised that the 2013 will come!
2012 Cabernet Sauvignon, Ramey (Napa Valley)
A big, open, sweet nose with notes of ripe black currants, graphite, chewing tobacco, grilled meat and dusty earth. Very, very good. Sweet, fruit. Very likeable in a in-your-face kind of way.
The taste is large scaled, ripe and velvety with masses of juicy black currants, blueberries and raspberries alongside notes of charcoal, leather and dark chocolate. A long finish with finely polished tannins. This I like!
