    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1994 vintage of this wine was ranked #9 on the Wine Spectator's Top 10 Wines of 1997

    Scarlet color and brackish edges. Nose is sweet fruit and smoked meats. This wine already has some bouquet- truffle mushrooms, vanilla style oak. The palate is creamy richness with nuances of leather and a cocoa-style fine grain tannin. The flavors and structure of this vintage are consistent with the Caymus style - spice, toast, cassis - fully rich, yet supple.

    Critical Acclaim:

    A flashy, opulent Cabernet. You could even call it sexy. It's so soft and luxurious in blackberry, blueberry and cassis flavors. Absolutely delicious by any standard, yet the dry structure maintains elegant balance. Drink soon for youthful drama. Hard to believe production was nearly 72,000 cases.

    Supple and creamy-textured, with mocha, ripe plum and cherry flavors that show touches of tobacco, espresso and underbrush. Full-bodied, gaining tannic traction on the finish, elegant and readily approachable.

    Incredible wine. VERY drinkable now, and then some. So soft, sooth, velvety....have not had every vintage from Caymus, but who needs to with 2009?

    A little disappointed in the 2009 Caymus - previous 2 vintages are much better- Glad I only ordered one bottle to try! Will not order again.
