While (to my palate) not really varietal correct and certainly not my preferred style of Napa Cab this is however a solid and flawless wine that will have plenty of fans.

Perhaps the most promising Caymus SS in a long time. Nose of pure cassis. Big and laden with liquorice, black fruit, dark oak, fine tannins that linger forever. This beast needs another 5+ years, but has cedar and cocoa notes that suggest this will get much better.

Exceeded expectations. Helps that Wagner signed it for me.

My last bottle of this vintage, and I’m going to miss it. Comfort food for wine lovers, though some of the recent Caymus vintages are too contrived.

Blackberry juice w wood. My wood. Took the county negotiator only 45 minutes to get me this wine. It literally saved lives that day. This wine is a hero. So is the county negotiator.

Tough day, so I’m reaching for the comfort food. That’s Caymus in a glass.

09’ Caymus Special Selection. Can’t believe I’m about to say this… Well balanced.

Dark purplish ruby red. Layered nose with tons of cinnamon, blackberries, creme de cassis, vanilla, and a bit of graphite. Super dark palate with heavy tannins (7/10) and full bodied. Voluptuous and silky on the palate with tons of blackberries, classis, sweet spices, spices, and black currants. Even a touch savory. Long and lingering finish. Drink till 2039.
