The 2018 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon features both richness and freshness coming together in an intriguing way. Fruit is luscious, and integrated wood complements rather than defines the wine. Scents of cassis, blackberries and pomace fresh off the skins. The palate starts off broad and sleek, then broods with luxurious tannins expanding to a fine textural impression. Ripeness abounds with youthful vibrancy – fruit-driven as Caymus is known, with overlay of French oak on the finish
A friend closes each of his emails with “Wine! What are you saving it for?” And he couldn’t be more right. If I’ve learned nothing else with age, its that life is meant to be enjoyed. Too often we save our best bottles; age-worth, expensive, and/or high quality wine for that “special occasion”. For my money, a nice night with family and friends is that special occasion – life is way too short to wait. Thanks Alex S.
