Caymus Cabernet 2004

Winemaker's Notes:

95 points Wine Enthusiast: Here's an extraordinary wine to add to your cellar collection. It's a guaranteed ager. Supported by rich, sturdy tannins, it shows a firm, dry mouthfeel and deep flavors of blackberries, with a seamless hem of toasty oak. So balanced, so powerful and elegant, it's at the top of its class, and proves that the floor of the Napa Valley can produce great Cabernet. Drink now-2020. Cellar Selection. (Feb 2007)

This is what a Napa Cabernet is supposed to taste like. A big, velvety cab, dark fruit flavors balanced with supple tannins and a nice touch of cedar.

One of the better Speical Selects that I have tried. Hints of ripe cherry and black currant with a subdued earthiness that ends seemlesly. I would reccomend sitting on this wine for a few more and then enjoy over the next decade.

Wow, really beautiful nose and tastes extremely well, like a much older wine. Big fruit with a bit of tannin in the middle and finish, overall this wine is great from every aspect.

This and Opus One are at the top of my list for special occasions. Use a decanter and have some patience.....you won't be sorry!

Caymus has crafted an elegant and potent cabernet that I reluctantly drank in the absence of food. This turned out to be the antithesis of a mistake...my mouth was delighted. Herbaceous notes from the boquet showered me with Thai basil, green and black teas and a little juniper. With proper oxygenation, it then evolved to a beautiful nose of maple syrup and caramel with subtle hints of fruit starting to surface. Upon finishing my glass I could taste boysenberry and molasses simultaneously. A true expression of wine as a living entity that resurrects upon opening. At 15.4% alcohol, this wine's legs are wearing stilettoes. Drink at 62-64 degrees and enjoy with cocoa powdered steak right off the grill. I will next time. Immense.

The up-front, sexy 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Napa reveals the vintage's ripe headiness along with loads of glycerin, a juicy, fat texture, a dark ruby/purple color, and abundant cassis, herb, licorice, and smoke characteristics. Drink it over the ... Robert Parker's Wine Advocate. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2004 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
