Introduction

The Cali cab tasting is a yearly event and is usually one of the best tasting of the year at the schamburg binny's location. A great line-up of wines were poured. Kudos to Andre for putting together another great event.

Flight 1 (3 notes)

Red
2007 Dominus Estate USA, California, Napa Valley
92 points
Nice dark red coloring. Only had about a one ounce pour so limited notes here. Nice plums, casis, floral notes. Tannins we smooth, but the wine was holding back a bit. Got dark fruit and licorice. Not sure this bottle was showing it's best, wasn't decanted at all.
Red
2008 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection USA, California, Napa Valley
95 points
Dark purple in color. Just like the '09 caymus estate bottling this had a gorgeous nose of plums, mocha/coffee and a menthol component. Palate staining dark fruit with vanilla and chocolate. Tannins are well hidden behind the fruit. Nice smooth sexy finish.
Red
2009 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon USA, California, Napa Valley
94 points
Great dark almost purple coloring. What a seductive nose; sweet cherries, chocolate. On the palate this wine was silky smooth, tannins were there but well hidden by lush dark cherries, chocolate and a beautiful vanilla/cake icing flavor. Very port like. This is a wine I could drink by itself all night long. Simply sexy.
