Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 2009
Scarlet color and brackish edges. Nose is sweet fruit and smoked meats. This wine already has some bouquet - truffle mushrooms, vanilla style oak. The palate is creamy richness with nuances of leather and a cocoa-style fine grain tannin. The flavors and structure of this vintage are consistent with the Caymus style - spice, toast, cassis - fully rich, yet supple.
Dry and airy with medium body, fruity with a soft palate. Good nose
One of my favorite wines. Smooth, deep, with a lasting and rolling finish on the tongue. Deep berries and a subtle smokiness are lasting on the palette. You can never go wrong with this wine!
Smooth and full bodied that finished dry at the end.
External Reviews for Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Napa
Smooth and velvety, a medium-weight wine, with complex, subtle tobacco- and chocolate-tinged plum and currant aromas and flavors. Graceful, harmonious and elegant, with plenty of flavor to develop. Best after 1995. Better than bottle tasted earlier.
The '98 vintage was symbolic of man's quest to harmonize with what nature has to offer. Due to a cool spring, the vines appeared as if they would have difficulty in ripening by winter. So the folks at Caymus, decided to thin the crop to make sure that the grapes would attain maximum physiological ripeness. Harvest came late, but much to their surprise, the sugar levels exceeded those of previous vintages. the result is a rich wine, with highly extracted fruit that is ripe in overall presence and a firm structure beneath its supple qualities. Some wines take time to mature, but this wine is fast out of the gate and well ahead of the field. Caymus fans, enjoy this wine while you're waiting for the '96 and '97 to come around.
Packs in lots of ripe, rich, complex Cabernet flavors, gushing with ripe currant, plum and wild berry, turning spicy and revealing pretty oak and herb shadings as well. Long, smooth aftertaste. Drink now through 2010.
Smooth, rich and polished, with a tasty array of currant, anise, plum and blackberry fruit that's sharply focused, with pretty, toasty oak nuances adding depth and dimenison on the finish. Drink now through 2010.
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. Drink now through 2011.
Napa Valley standard, this cabernet hits the mark with a deep color and subdued scents of cassis. Its round, ripe black cherry flavor completely fills out the smooth, chocolate-textured tannin. Oak enriches the finish, making this ready to enjoy at a steakhouse at the close of a long-negotiated deal.
A stylish wine with layers of rich, polished Cabernet fruit, a chorus of currant, herb and black cherry accompanied by pretty smoke and toasty oak. The long, soothing, complex aftertaste keeps pumping out the flavors. Drink now through 2011.
