Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 1999
from Napa Valley, California
The color of the Caymus 1999 is a deep opaque ruby. The classic nose gives aromas of ripe, pure black currant (cassis) and black fruit (the characteristics we prize in Napa Valley Cabernet) with compelling notes of clove, toasted hazelnuts, and espresso-roast coffee beans. Subtle secondary notes of vanilla and toasty oak then fold in. The taste is a core of deeply extracted, lush berry fruit underpins the wine during its evolution in the mouth as other flavor layers emerge: bittersweet cocoa, creamy vanilla, cedar and a light touch of mint. The fruit and oak tannins are beautifully knit, reinforcing the overall impression of sweetness. The finish is long and deeply flavored, carrying through the layers of berry and spice notes predicted in the aromas.
