Full-blown, ripe and rich, with intense and sharply focused dried currant, wild berry and blackberry fruit that's still fairly tannic at this stage. Ends with a long, persistent finish. (JL)
Ripeness and sweet oak are the governing traits of this very rich and wide-open wine, and it is more geared to dark chocolate and caramelly sweetness than it is to classic Cabernet fruit. That said, it is positively plush on the palate with extract to spare, so much so, in fact, as to make its hard turn to tannin and heat an acceptable sin. *One Star*
Bright ruby-red. Aromas of cassis, spicecake and bitter chocolate, with a strong component of sweet, nutty oak. Lush, full and sweet, with black fruit, dark chocolate and graphite flavors dominating. Finishes with big, broad, mouthdusting tannins that coat the front teeth. There's no reason not to enjoy this cabernet now but it should evolve nicely for five or six years.
Similar to Caymus' ultra-rich Special Selection, though somewhat less ripe and extracted, with fleshy black fruit, chocolatey oak and cedar, black olive and liquorice shadings. Well-made for the style. 17.5/20 points (LM)
