Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2007!
A burst of black fruit aromas, the essence of perfect summer berries. Sweet, ripe blackberry flavors with an undertone of mocha and toasted oak. Balancing acidity and a fine, chalky texture carry the wine through to an exceptionally long finish, with no falling off of the rich fruit flavors. From first sip to last, nothing is missing as the wine crosses the palate.

This is an intense, powerful, incredible Cabernet, but then I wouldn't expect anything less from Caymus. It is consistently good year after year; and has always been one of my all-time favorites. It's a rich garnet/purple color and opens with a big bouquet and a burst of black fruit aromas with hints of cassis, plum and berries; The fruity aromas actually filled the air when I poured it...I love that!! It's very rich and full-bodied on the palate; seriously lush with big black fruit that explodes, hints of mocha, spice, raspberry and a hint of vanilla. It's concentrated, well-balanced, structured, and maintains its fruit forward berry flavors. It has an exceptionally long, superbly smooth, yummy finish. Overall this wine (any vintage!) is incredible. I highly recommend it! Sheer Deliciousness!! If you love big Napa Cabs, you will love Caymus!!
