Beautifully proportioned, rich in dark berry, dusty cedar and loamy earth, black licorice, herb, olive and tobacco notes, with all the pieces fitting together nicely, ending in a long, tapered aftertaste. (JL, Web-2016)
Fabulous aromas of sweet tobacco, dark fruits, and dark chocolate. Full bodied and soft, with lovely velvety tannins and a long fruity finish. Nice subtlety. This is ready to go today. Why wait?
*Two Stars* Both of the Caymus Cabernets reviewed in this issue embrace unabashed ripeness as a defining trait, but, in this instance, the wine's rush to ripeness is balanced by a wealth of very sweet oak and well-extracted fruit. Plush and full-bodied and shot through with cassis and cocoa, the wine more than makes up in richness for what it may lack in finesse, and its slight edge of last-minute heat is easy enough to forgive. Fans of unabashedly expressive Cabernets will find lots to like here.

Dead last finisher against 2006 Groth Reserve, 2002 BV Latour, 2004 Silver Oak Napa, 2003 Blankiet, 1997 Mondavi Reserve. Clearly still very young, overwhelming green stem on the nose and high acid. Improved steadily with multiple decatings over many hours, but hard to recommend this when there are many other great options at this price.

Probably the biggest disappointment this year for me. Wild berry nose, dried fruit mid palate and chewy burnt coffee finish. This wine lacked every element I look for in a rich Napa Cab. I've tasted more complex Merlots than this. Do yourself a favor and purchase the 2007 Caymus (reg) instead and be prepared to be amazed!
