NOT A 2013 California Cabernet

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!

  1. Joakim, thank you! We look forward to visiting Sweden, perhaps in 2019...

    1. Thanks David! I have just picked up the 2013 - will taste it soon!
