Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 2006
This is just an absolutely fantastic wine. Just heavenly! So big, fruity and delicious. One of my all-time favorite wines and vintages.
Deep Red/Purple, Closed nose from cellar temperature but opened after 30 minute decant to ~66 degrees. Aromas of black/red current jelly, fresh crushed blackberry, ripe black cherry skin. Flavors intense and match aromas, cassis, crushed fresh dark berries, with added warm spice(not overoaked). Harmonious balance of round tannins and acid. Full bodied. Mouth-coating long finish. Roasted leg of lamb, Rice Pilaf, peas, biscuits and mint jelly. Hold? Can't get much better! March 2010
Unusually tight when first opened. decated and smoothed to a wonderful berry content. Long great finish, very smooth.
Wonderful Cab I wish I could afford to drink more often. Classy with rich tannins and a potent oak note. Hints of currants, mochas, and a little spice to top everything off. I recommend opening and enjoying now!

External Reviews for Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon
Lots of rich, creamy oak and a tasty core of ripe currant, plum and black cherry fruit combine to form this notably complex and concentrated young wine. Delicious from start to finish, with a long fruity aftertaste and fine-grained tannins. Drink now through 2011.
A stylish wine with layers of rich, polished Cabernet fruit, a chorus of currant, herb and black cherry accompanied by pretty smoke and toasty oak. The long, soothing, complex aftertaste keeps pumping out the flavors. Drink now through 2011.
Manages to feel both soft and tannic at the same time, which means it's fine now but should age for a few years. The black currant and smoky oak flavors are harmonious, with sweet fruit lasting through the long finish.
Smooth, rich and seductive, with impeccable balance, great depth and lots of finesse and flavor. The layers of plum, black cherry, mocha, spice and wild berry flavors unfold gracefully, giving it a long, supple aftertaste. Drink now through 2012.
Pleasant for its range of cherry, spice, cedar and currant flavors. Not a big, overbearing style, but rather elegant and refined, with a complex aftertaste. Caymus fans note: A Special Selection was not made in 1993, so the estate grapes went into this wine.
This extraordinary wine possesses an enormous wealth of black cherry, blueberry, cassis and espresso flavors, wrapped in fine, well-toasted oak. Has the rare quality of elegance, in which all the parts work together in harmony. Thoroughly dry, it's marked by a firm, astringent tannic structure now, but is a certain cellar candidate. Should begin to blossom by 2008 and hold through 2015.
The '98 vintage was symbolic of man's quest to harmonize with what nature has to offer. Due to a cool spring, the vines appeared as if they would have difficulty in ripening by winter. So the folks at Caymus, decided to thin the crop to make sure that the grapes would attain maximum physiological ripeness. Harvest came late, but much to their surprise, the sugar levels exceeded those of previous vintages. the result is a rich wine, with highly extracted fruit that is ripe in overall presence and a firm structure beneath its supple qualities. Some wines take time to mature, but this wine is fast out of the gate and well ahead of the field. Caymus fans, enjoy this wine while you're waiting for the '96 and '97 to come around.
