Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Wine Tasting Notes 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. Flavors of cocoa, currant and sweet tobacco. This rich and chalky wine, devoid of assertive astringencies, drinks well now and should endure for a decade or more.

Coffee, chocolate and cocoa nose. Rich, sweet and luscious with menthol and eucalyptus flavors under plum, cherry and cassis. Dusted chocolate and cedar flavors on the finish. Served with dry aged prime beef, glazed bone marrow and red wine sweet onions.

94 pts - rich, lush, bold. Fruit forward without being "fruity." Great with pasta and a relaxed tomato-based sauce.

One of the most unique cabs I've ever had. Exploded with vanilla and casis and well refined. Had this for Christmas dinner this year and have two in the cellar for years to come.

Very smooth with big jammy fruit and a soft finish - obviously needs quite a bit of cellaring.

Starts with a thick texture that is oh so silky smooth then featuring rich flavors of plums & sweet chocolate, then finishing with a taste & aroma of caramel and oak that lingers pleasantly for almost 60 seconds. I enjoyed this bottle for over an hour and it still continued to change for the better all the way to the end.

The color is very dark and extracted, almost black with a purple core full of intensity. The nose has a beautiful perfume of black and blue fruits with complexity I have not seen in this wine since the 1997 vintage! The entry is plush, with plenty ... Andy Frieden.

Ripe and fleshy, with rich plum, wild berry, spice and savory herb notes that are complex, full-bodied and expansive on the palate, ending with firm tannins and a dash of espresso. Drink now through 2016. 37,800 cases made. Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2007 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml

Charlie Wagner founded Caymus Vineyards in 1972 and has made Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon every year since its founding. Caymus focuses entirely on this variety and the winery's 60-plus acres of estate Cabernet Sauvignon in Napa Valley's Rutherford District forms the foundation of Caymus’ Cabernet every vintage. And every vintage Caymus Cabernet is snapped up by Cab lovers and collectors while it’s lauded by critics. This 2007 is the latest triumph; an outstanding vintage in Napa Valley and superb wine, rated 92 points by Wine Spectator who said “Ripe and fleshy, with rich plum, wild berry, spice and savory herb notes that are complex, full-bodied and expansive on the palate, ending with firm tannins and a dash of espresso. Drink now through 2016. Limited. not sponsored by or affiliated with The Wine Spectator. This item excluded from XTYPAK and any other discounts or offers beyond the 15% case discount.
