In the blind tasting, I first thought this was a Spanish wine given the intense, pain grillee, toasty oak, and vanilla aromas. After ten minutes some of the oak dissipated, allowing the wine's flamboyant blackcurrant fruit to emerge. Full-bodied, exceptionally concentrated, with a seamless, velvety texture, and a marvelously long, opulent finish, this 1986 Cabernet tastes like a jar of jam on the palate, with great purity and staying power. This impressive, sweet, creamy, exotic, and flamboyant wine merits the praise it has received. (RP)
*** Ranked #24 on Wine Spectator's Top 100 Wines of 1990 *** Clearly the best regular Cabernet from Caymus yet. Complex, elegant and delicious already, with chocolate- and smoke-tinged plum and cherry aromas and flavors. Supple, smooth and amazingly long on the finish. Uncommonly complex and elegant. (JL)
