Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2000

Winemaker's Notes:

Color: Opaque, dark ruby deepening to an almost purple hue. Aromas: Immediate, powerful aromas of blackberries and wild berries, promising highly extracted fruit, followed by subtler notes of exotic spices. Flavors/texture: Deep, dark flavors of black currants, black cherries and juicy, lushly ripe blackberries envelop the palate, offering a core of fruit essence that persists from first sip to finish. Notes of toasty oak are very harmoniously integrated with the fruit. The texture is dense and elegant at the same time. Suggestions of creamy vanilla and exotic spice flavors emerge on the long, expansive finish. The wine has great natural balance, calling the taster back for another sip.

A bright-edged wine, redolent of Bing cherry, raspberry, blackberry, anise, spice, cedar and herb flavors. Tannins are powdery, firm and ripe. They frame the wine in a toasty embrace, ending with a plush finish. Consistently a benchmark from the hear... Wine Enthusiast. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 2000 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 750ml
