This wine has a signature style that is dark in color, with rich fruit and ripe, velvety tannins – as approachable in youth as in maturity. Caymus farms Cabernet grapes in eight of Napa’s 16 sub-appellations, with diversification enabling the winery to make the best possible wine in a given year. This Cabernet offers layered, lush aromas and flavors, including cocoa, cassis and ripe dark berries.
"Another banker from one of the most recognized wines from the Napa Valley, Caymus Vineyards has turned in another solid performance. The 2015 vintage shows up with ripe black fruits, a nice touch of oak, and a smooth roundness on the palate. The wine's ease in the finish pairs it nicely with grilled tri-tip accented with a sweet-sour barbecue glaze." (Tasted: August 23, 2017, San Francisco, CA)
-91 Points, Wilfred Wong
"Deep purple-black in color, the 2015 Cabernet Sauvignon springs from the glass with lifted crème de cassis, violets and chocolate box notes plus hints of lilacs, raspberry leaves, anise and cardamom. The perfumed black fruit preserves and chocolate-laced notes completely pack the full-bodied palate, with soft, velvety tannins and just enough freshness, finishing very long and very spicy. Definitely one for hedonists seeking immediate gratification. - Lisa Perrotti-Brown" -Rated 94, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
