Caymus Special Selection Double Cabernet 1997

Member Review by lizzy3195:

This was really my introductory wine. My uncle is very good friends with the owner of this vineyard so we drink Caymus at every major holiday or family event. I love the complexity that this wine has: it's lux, it's berry, it stands on its own without bowling you over. The color is amazing too, very deep & rich.

Cellared for 3 years and enjoyed this wine for Christmas dinner with prime rib, haricot verts, cinnamon glazed carrots and baked potatoes. Divine balance of blackberry and cherry, hint of pepper and minty cedar on back end. Tannins still present suggests its beauty will stretch into 2013 and maybe another year.

Bright ruby. Cassis, violet and lightly tarry, spicy oak. Ripe, dense and very concentrated; thick and deep. Not at all overly sweet or dominated by the wood. Has superb material and verve. Finishes very long, with thoroughly ripe tannins. The finest... Stephen Tanzers IWC. A Cabernet Sauvignon wine from California in USA. 1997 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 1500ml
