2006 Caymus Napa Cabernet Sauvignon has full-blown, ripe and rich, with intense and sharply focused dried currant, wild berry and blackberry fruit that's still fairly tannic at this stage. Ends with a long, persistent finish. Best from 2010

Aromas of sweet bing cherry and ripe, lush plum. The opulent sweetness of peak-season, fully-ripe fruit brings about abundant yet soft tannins. The core of this wine is a silky and amiably rich, textured base, with a pure Napa Valley Cabernet focus.

Powerful aromas of ripe blackberry and dark cherry, with notes of vanilla, cocoa and rose petal. In the mouth, the wine exudes richness and a finely-grained cocoa texture, with low acidity expressing breadth and richness on the palate. Flavors of
