Celebrating 12,000 followers on Vivino, on this #FridayCabernetfix, with this gorgeous aged Napa Cabernet. And it's Valentine's Day, too.
Dark ruby in color with a short reddish /brick rim.
Full bodied, bold, smooth and elegant with medium acidity and long legs.
Very aromatic nose.
Dry on the palate with blackberries, blackcurrants, cooked blueberries, black plums, vanilla, licorice, spices, chocolates, earth, smoked ham, black pepper, light vinaigrette, beef jerky, leather and dark coffee.
Long finish with fine grained tannins (after 3 hours of airtime) and tangy raspberries.
What a wonderful Cabernet Sauvignon from Caymus. Showing great complexity with a soft, smooth and elegant mouthfeel.
This 16 year old is good right out of the bottle, and better after 3 hours of airtime, when tannins and complexity come in, so have patience.
I loved the tangy ending and loved smelling on it for a long time.
Probably the oldest Caymus I have had so far, and I really like it at this stage. A good wine to drink and talk about.
Good by itself or with food. I enjoyed it with a charcuterie board of meats and cheeses.
14.5% alcohol by volume.

We tried the 2013 Caymus & 2017 Rombauer (El Dorado) zins side by side and Caymus was the clear winner. Good length, the fruit on the Caymus was more integrated, much smoother and overall more pleasing than the Rombauer. The Caymus doesn’t have as much spice as traditional zins. Both very solid wines however. — 12 days ago
Jammy beginning with a pleasantly peppery finish. Overall very smooth. Medium body. — 3 days ago
Very good cab for the price. Getting a lot of brown sugar vibes from this one. Similar to Caymus, jammy berries on the nose with that brown sugar vibe coming in on the back end. — 16 days ago
