2008 Caymus Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon

SKU #500015
Dark scarlet color and near opaque. Nose is assertive with a vibrant array of showy characteristics; cassis, vanilla, cranberry, French oak, coffee and potpourri. The palate of this wine shows ripeness of mature grapes, fruit impressions then expands to richness with fine gritty tannins. Abundant with layered flavors of brown spice, toasted oak, white pepper and creme de cassis, very rich yet harmonious and supple.

WINE SPECTATOR RATING: 93
WINE SPECTATOR REVIEW: Open fruit, rich, lush and layered, serving up a complex mix of plum, blackberry, black licorice and spices. Full-bodied and supple-textured, ending with a long, persistent finish that keeps repeating the core flavor themes. Drink now through 2018.
The 2008 vintage: an extended, dry growing season allowed for completion of harvest during “Indian summer" between a few fall showers. Such conditions allowed the fruit to ripen further and this "extended hang time” developed a wine of greater color, less acidity, and fine textured qualities. One might say that 2008 is a vintage where the wine was "made in the vineyard.” We monitored the ripeness daily, harvesting the grapes as they matured to our desire—and produced a dark, richly flavored wine in the process.
