2007 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon

Community Tasting Note

Thursday, November 26, 2009 - When I first opened this wine, I thought it was just another solid effort from the folks at Caymus. But after it breathed for just a little while I'm thinking this vintage might be a high water mark for Napa Cab. Classic Cabernet aromas of black currant with a touch of vanilla. Perhaps a little nutmeg. On the palate this wine is straight cola in a good way. Hardly tannic at all and it's only 2 years old. I was worried it was going to be a little young, but not at all. Perhaps not age-worthy but I thought this was an outstanding wine. A value at around $55 retail.
