Caymus Cabernet 1997

Winemaker's Notes:

Aromas of fresh dill and toast join ripe cherry and blackberry, with a touch of anise and sage. Elegantly styled, with a hint of sassafras, ending with ripe, integrated tannins.

The Caymus was an interesting wine, it had a bit of bottle stink which set some back but it blew off and revealed a very fine cabernet. The wine had matured into a delightful cabernet which was showing still some evidence of black current/blackberry fruit but now being more evident was a beautiful cigar box and chocolate secondary taste. The wine evolved in the glass and as it did the secondary flavours gained more prominence but delivered a nicely balanced wine, certainly this was an excellent advert for Napa Cabernet.

Red berry fruits typical of Napa Valley with strong vanilla notes combined with fabulous oak, the fruits stand up to heavy red meats and can be sipped by the fire. Xoxo

The bouquet is dark and serious, with brooding black-cherry, leather and cedar aromas. In the mouth, flavors of black plums, mint-menthol and tobacco—all with a foresty accent—fill the palate. On the heavy side of medium-weight, with a supple textur... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
