Another winner from Caymus! Literally black at the core with a dark ruby rim. The nose is classic Napa cab; cassis, plum, coffee, and a touch of toasty oak. On the palate the wine is quite expansive as it offers notes of red and black fruits, sage... John Sweeney. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2008 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 1500ml

93 Points - Wine Spectator"Open fruit, rich, lush and layered, serving up a complex mix of plum, blackberry, black licorice and spices. Full-bodied and supple-textured, ending with a long, persistent finish that keeps repeating the core flavor themes. Drink now through 2018."

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. The 2008 has just arrived and is destined for glory. Full-bodied, concentrated and ultra-ripe. It shows ripe black cherry and cocoa with brown spices on a dense core with succulent tannins. Very Limited!
