Wine Review: This slightly opaque and ruby colored Cabernet Sauvignon from Caymus was very popular with our mini-tasting group. It opens with a fragrant cassis bouquet with a hint of oak. On the palate, this wine was full bodied, balanced and smooth. The flavor profile is a tasty stewed plum and gentle blackberry blend with notes of oak. I also detected a hint of menthol. The finish displays very well-managed tannins that drift away nicely. This very good Cab would pair well with a five-spice duck breast with blackberries. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: An alluring plum red, with scents of dark cherries, chocolate shavings and violets. A hint of Napa Valley dust comes through on the nose, which has an equal balance of fruit, oak and earthiness. Enters the palate with a soft suppleness, peaking with flavors or cassis, dark berries, lavender and nutmeg. Texturous and fills the mouth. The exceptionally long finish displays a harmony of grippiness, vanilla oak and lush fruit.
