A rich, showy style, with a very creamy texture to its mix of warmed vanilla, plum and boysenberry puree, and melted black licorice flavors. A mocha notes swirls around the fruit on the finish. Drink now through 2028.Wine Enthusiast: 92 Points
The 2020 Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon is full-framed and lasting on the palate. TASTING NOTES: This wine excels with aromas and flavors of sandalwood, black fruit, and oak. Serve it with an oven-baked eye of the round roast. (Tasted: July 18, 2022, San Francisco, CA)Decanter: 90 Points
77% Cabernet Sauvignon; 23% red Bordeaux varieties. Very polished, fully ripe and very well-fruited with a generous, but an always-complementary allocation of sweet oak fitting in seamlessly with its dominant themes of juicy black cherries and cassis, the 2019 Caymus Cabernet is surprisingly open and expressive for one of its age while still showing the fine tannic structure of a wine that has nowhere but good places to go. Slightly grippy, but never tough, it is all but certain to lure more than a few into too-early drinking, and, though we must admit that it does offer a great deal to like now and will elevate the coming Christmas dinner of prime rib, it is only with patience – three or four years at the least and, better yet, five or six – that it will fully come into its own.
