• 2007 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon - USA, California, Napa Valley (10/5/2009)
    Decanted for 2 hours. Nose of bright ripe jammy red fruit, baking chocolate, sugared jelly donut and fresh tilled earth on the nose with same red fruits, leathery and sweet tannins showing on the palate. A little heat on the finish lasting 30 seconds. Second day showed better integrated tannins and less heat. This one lost much of its jammy, fruity nose on the second day but gained a little more elegance, showing scorched earth, olive tapenade and cedar box on the palate. Overall, very nice - a quality Cab from an outstanding vintage. Well balanced with nice complexity. A little time will improve this one a bit but this is very approachable now. Highly reccomended. (93 pts.)
