Wine Description

(2009 Vintage) Both Cabernet bottlings have aromas and flavors which can only be achieved through "hang time" – a technique which chances the loss of crop if early winter sets in. Leaving the fruit to "hang" on the vine unusually long develops suppleness, increases color, and matures the tannins of the grapes. The wines are abundant in textural tannins yet soft as velvet. Crop thinning, allowing measured sunlight to reach the vine's fruit zone, and waiting for increased ripeness are all part of our viticultural practices. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide array of aromas and flavors including cocoa, cassis and vanilla.

    (2003 Vintage) Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Blackberry and damson fruit, roasted coffee beans. Bold flavours, rich and full bodied. Softly structured but balanced acidity giving freshness. Sensitive use of spicy oak, lush finish. Drink 2009-12.
