Sokolin 2016 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Tasting Notes:

With what seems like complete ease, Caymus continues to impress wine lovers and outperform its competitors, and nowhere is this more evident than their 2016 vintage. Set aside an afternoon or two and prepare to be overwhelmed by the wine's incredibly rich and vibrant flavor profile, as well as its seemingly endless textural complexities. One cannot overstate the quality of this masterpiece, and every respectable collection should feature a bottle or two.

It all begins on the nose as the wine unfolds like a delicate flower at dawn, creating a soft, intimate aromatic cocktail. Beautiful, refreshing traces of violet and lavender appear early and translate fluently into refined, oaken earthiness, with a warm, toasty chocolate undertone. The mouthwatering scent of fruit beckons you in with the promise of intense, heavenly flavor - and that promise is fulfilled within seconds.

As the wine graces your palate, you would be forgiven for collapsing with pleasure, as the supple, potent flavor profile unfolds with stunning force and wonderfully fluent expressiveness. Lush dark berries take center stage alongside tasteful, measured notes of lavender, creme de cassis, and nutmeg. The mouthfeel is as smooth as the most expensive silk on the planet, as the wine coats your entire mouth with a spellbinding, intoxicating aftertaste. It's a perfect expression of Caymus Cabernet, and an experience you will cherish for decades to come.

Country US: As one of the most prolific and innovative wine regions in the world, America is a joy to explore. Most wine connoisseurs will agree that the nation's finest and most compelling wines are being produced today, which means that we have front-row seats to one of the most inspirational stories in wine history. While other regions tend to focus on specific wine styles and have somewhat strict rules as to which varietals you could grow, areas like California have few such restrictions in place. As a result, creative visionaries behind America's most reputable estates have been able to develop compelling, unique, and innovative styles, with a level of terroir expression that rivals even France's largest giants.

Region California: With a history of wine production that dates back to the 18th century, California currently sits as one of the world's most prolific and reputable wine regions. With an area as vast as California, you can expect a colorful collage of terroir profiles, a series of microclimates, and micro-environments that give the wine a unique, memorable appeal. The region's produce is far from homogenized in that sense, and it would take you countless hours to sample all of it. While the region boasts scars from the Prohibition era, it went through what can only be described as a viticultural Renaissance sometime after the 1960s. At that point, California went from a port-style, sweet wine region to a versatile and compelling competitor on the world market. Today, no matter which way your taste in wine leans, you can find a new favorite producer among California's most talented. Notable sub-regions include legendary names like Napa Valley and Sonoma County, places that any wine lover would die to visit. California's quintessential warm climate allows for incredibly ripe fruit expressions, a style that provides a stark contrast to Old World-inspired, earthy classics. Even where inspiration was clearly taken from staple French appellations, Californian winemakers put their own unique spin on the wine.
Type of Wine California Red: Whether it's Cabernet Sauvignon, Merlot, Syrah or Zinfandel, Californian red wine producers have a lovely habit of taking a varietal and expressing its essence in a unique, never before seen way. From Napa Valley to the regions south of Los Angeles, there's a red for everyone - and it's never too late to start exploring.
