2008 Caymus Cabernet, Napa Valley

Caymus is one of Napa Valley's benchmark producers; year in, year out, they make very good wines.  In my opinion, the Caymus Napa Cabernet is one of the best bang for the bucks Napa Cabs.

This wine shows tart cherries and red fruits on the nose as well as a little barrel caramel/toasty sugar.  The palate is juicy, rich, layered and dense, not open.  There is up front minerality with blackberry, blueberry and plum fruits that have a nice vine element and terrific wood integration.  This wine is classic Caymus and the palate is long, balanced, and smooth.
