Top 10 Summer Wines 2012

Caymus Vineyards 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon, one of our Top 10 Summer Wines 2012


Caymus Vineyards 2009 Cabernet Sauvignon
Napa Valley, California

The grapes that go into Caymus' signature Cabernet Sauvignon are sourced from eight of Napa Valley's fifteen sub-appellations. The resulting blend is fruit-forward, with a touch of sweetness, in contrast to the typical Napa Cab, which is drier and more tannic. Flavors of bright red berries, vanilla and spice characterize the 2009 vintage.
