Caymus Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2018 (1500ml)

$179.99

Caymus 2018 Napa Cabernet Magnum bottles (1.5L). Rare! previous vintage 96 Points Robert Parker:  "They appear to be immune to some of winedom’s less than intelligent trends and fads that we see from time to time, and the result is a spectacular Cabernet Sauvignon 40th Anniversary offering. Its dense purple/black color is followed by copious quantities of crème de cassis and blackberry fruit, silky tannins, a voluptuous texture and stunning purity as well as length. This full-bodied effort is a fabulous example of Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon as well as a tribute to this amazing family. It is so good now, why wait? However, I’m sure that like most vintages of Caymus, it will last for 20-25 years. Amazing! ...I am old enough to remember Chuck Wagner and his father, who I first met at Caymus in the late seventies. This is clearly one of Napa Valley’s iconic wineries, as well as one that, amazingly, never went through a bad patch. Obviously, no matter which generation is in the driver’s seat (or should I say tractor’s seat), Caymus Vineyard knows how to deliver flavor and deliciousness." *please note:  this is a Magnum (1.5L) bottle

Just tasted ‘18. Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe berry fruit and floral spice, pure Caymus signature style, easy drinking, as always. On the palate flavors of ripe blackberry, black cherry and currants with complex spice showing notes of cacao, cinnamon and rich vanilla oak. Fine soft tannins, nice mouthfeel, great balance with acidity, long finish, ending with notes of oak and mineral notes. Nice!

Due to the sheer quantity of this juice that we have on hand, this has become our go-to weekend travel wine

Deep ruby/purple in color with a nose of black cherries, boysenberries, eucalyptus, wet gravel, and a touch of coffee. Full-bodied and smooth, the wine has a unique taste I can’t quite put my finger on. Not sure if my taste buds are off or if the bottle has a flaw. Will taste again later to compare. Update - My tastebuds are fine. Compared with SL Artemis and something is off on this bottle. May return.

Smooth, dark fruit, not tannic, seems like they added some residual sugar. Good wine but for the price tag..... not so sure.

Did not like this wine. It smells really good, tons of blackberry and vanilla. Not the typical California cab though. Somewhat cold but SOOO much black licorice and finishes with this bitter astringent note. It warmed up well and the licorice faded but still not the big cab that I love

Sharp fruity flavors, bright purple-red colors. A good solid young Cab.

Dry, very fruity palate. Deep red purple colours. Smell of berries, fig, some chocolate. Fabulous paired with rich charcuterie, fruits and cheeses. Bold flavour, and great finish. Best after opening up a bit.
