Getting to try the Caymus Cab 2009 is a real treat.
A thick very dark wine appears almost inky scarlet to vermilion in color. On the nose, it exhibits lush fruit, succulent blackberry, ripe raspberry, and big black cherry. The fruit hits it out of the park!
The bouquet brings mushrooms, chocolate, vanilla to the table. Well structured, the French-Oak delivers toast and smoke on the palate (16 months French-Oak before bottling).
Soft tannins coat the mouth. Low acidity and sweet red fruit make it taste like red otter-pops (in a good way). The finish is tannic and hot just the way I want my Napa Cabs (14.8% abv).
Overall it's an exceptional wine.

Sweet dried cherries, cinnamon, vanilla ans spice box on the nose. Tobacco leather and red fruit mix with a silky texture and a pleasant acidity leaving a long cherry pie finish.
