Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Bin Soiled Label 2002

Winemaker's Notes:

A classic Napa Cabernet that is a consistent top seller at wine.com. The color is a deep opaque ruby. The nose gives aromas of ripe, pure black currant (cassis) and black fruit—the characteristics we prize in Napa Valley Cabernet—with compelling notes of clove, toasted hazelnuts, and espresso-roast coffee beans. Subtle secondary notes of vanilla and toasty oak then fold in. The taste is a core of deeply extracted, lush berry fruit underpins the wine during its evolution in the mouth as other flavor layers emerge: bittersweet cocoa, creamy vanilla, cedar and a light touch of mint. The fruit and oak tannins are beautifully knit, reinforcing the overall impression of sweetness. The finish is long and deeply flavored, carrying through the layers of berry and spice notes predicted in the aromas.

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. Wine Spectator. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2002 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon 750ml
