Alcohol By Volume Guide

  • 10%
  • 16+%
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.

Winemaker's Notes

The fifth vintage of this blend--it represents our version of a "winemaker's wine." While Annum is an appellation wine, it is the one blend we make each year that allows us to select from a range of vineyards to make the best blend possible that vintage.

Critical Acclaim

"The spectacular 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum (100% Cabernet Sauvignon) is a multi-appellation blend revealing classic Cabernet Sauvignon notes of forest floor, unsmoked cigar tobacco, creme de cassis and vanillin, a dense, full-bodied mouthfeel and a long, heady finish. Consume it over the next 15-20 years."
95 Points

"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Annum has more focus and nuance than the 2009. A big, broad-shouldered wine, the 2010 fleshes out beautifully in the glass as the fruit fleshes out. Firm tannins frame a core of super-ripe fruit. The Annum is made almost exclusively from hillside fruit. It is also the ripest of the Ramey Cabernets and that overtness strikes me as a bit over the top as the Annum often lacks the precision of the best Ramey wines.

"Opaque purple. Dark fruit compote and cherry-vanilla aromas are brightened by suave floral and spicecake notes and pick up a smoky quality with air. Broad and fleshy but energetic as well, offering vibrant blackberry and bitter cherry flavors that gain weight in the glass. Powerful but very lithe, with strong finishing punch and subtle, slow-building tannins."

Learn About Napa Valley

It's hard not to think of Napa Valley when thinking of California wines. The region is, after all, the one that brought world recognition to California wine making. The area was settled by a few choice wine families in the 1960's who bet that the wines of the area would grow and flourish. They were right. The Napa wine industry really took off in the 1980's, when vineyard...

Learn About Cabernet Sauvignon

(cab-uhr-NAY sow-veeh-yawn) King of Red Many refer to Cabernet Sauvignon as the king of red grapes. Perhaps that title is due to its ability to grow worldwide in a number of climates, or to the fact that it produces wine with such character yet such diversity. Either way, this grape is responsible, as a whole or a partner, for some of the greatest wines in the world. In Bordeaux,...
