The 2014 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon follows up the past two highly impressive releases from this estate. Coming from another hot vintage, this wine is a blend of eight Napa sub-appellations and displays the rich fruit flavors that Caymus has been known for. This plush and silky Cabernet opens with aromatics of black cherry, tar, clove and crème de cassis. This leads to ripe flavors of blueberry compote, dark currants, anise, black olive, mocha and pipe tobacco which cascade on the palate.
The wine has an exceedingly plush texture and gorgeous mouthfeel as there is a wonderful array of dark fruit flavors at play. This has some very good cellaring potential and will drink beautifully for the next twenty years. (Best 2016-2035)
Score - 93. (Dr. Owen Bargreen, internationalwinereport.com, June 2016)
