Wine Review: This midnight blue colored Cabernet from Caymus is very different from the previous two vintages. This year’s version will appeal to fans of Aussie Shiraz and other big fruit bombs. It opens with a fragrant blueberry and blackberry like bouquet. On the palate, this wine is balanced, rich and very fruit forward. The flavor profile is an extracted blackberry and black currant blend with notes of anise, black pepper and subtle oak. The finish is dry and its moderate tannins and flavors are nicely prolonged. This big boy Cab would pair well with slow cooked braised short ribs. Enjoy - Ken

Winemaker Notes: A dark, scarlet red color, with powerful aromas of sweet ripe Cabernet grapes. Initial impressions are fantastically appealing, brooding to expansive textural sensations of finely grained cacao tannins. The whole of the wine is balanced, rich, expressive and impressively complex. The backbone of fine tannin and sweet ripeness is a carry over from perfectly mature fruit.
