From the Cellar

Caymus 2004 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection (California)

23 Dec 2021

Caymus 2004

 

(January 30, 2021) ... Starts off with leathery and smoky notes followed by dark berry fruit, oak, and vanilla, which starts to emerge after about 15-20 minutes of being open. After an hour to an hour-and-a-half the alcohol starts to permeate the nose, then it comes to the palate, by this time I spun the bottle around and see that it is 15.2% - the alcohol has now come to play and stays there ... by the hour two-and-a-half hour mark it's chewy with mocha , black cherry, and chocolate but that alcohol keeps getting in the way. Rats.
