The Caymus was an interesting wine, it had a bit of bottle stink which set some back but it blew off and revealed a very fine cabernet. The wine had matured into a delightful cabernet which was showing still some evidence of black current/blackberry fruit but now being more evident was a beautiful cigar box and chocolate secondary taste. The wine evolved in the glass and as it did the secondary flavours gained more prominence but delivered a nicely balanced wine, certainly this was an excellent advert for Napa Cabernet.
Red berry fruits typical of Napa Valley with strong vanilla notes combined with fabulous oak, the fruits stand up to heavy red meats and can be sipped by the fire. Xoxo

medium bodied with some sediment but still well structured. Smooth from start through a delightfully long resonating finish.
