Caymus Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon 2010
Powerful aromas of ripe blackberry and dark cherry, with notes of vanilla, cocoa, and rose petal. In the mouth, the wine exudes richness and a finely-grained cocoa texture, with low acidity expressing breadth and richness on the palate. Flavors of chocolate, dark berry fruits, and the classic Cabernet cassis are supported by the texture of fine-grained tannins. Caymus Vineyards was launched by the Wagner family in 1971. The Wagners took the name Caymus from the Mexican land grant known as Rancho Caymus given to George Yount in 1836, which encompassed what eventually became the town of Rutherford and much of the surrounding area. Two types of Cabernet Sauvignons are produced—a "Napa Valley" and the venerable "Special Selection." 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. Caymus Napa Valley is more representative of a standard Cabernet of Napa Valley, as it is a bit less precocious than the Special Selection, but still delivers big.
