Be sure to stop in soon and pick up a few bottles of these new wines at Imbibe.
2008 Caymus Special Select Cabernet Sauvignon $109.99 The 2008 Caymus Special Selection represents the finest wine lots of the vintage. Starting in 1975 this wine is one of the bench marks of Napa Cabernet. The wine rich deep ruby color reflects the depth this wine has to offer. Lush aromas of ripe black currant, black cherry and cedary oak add luxurious flavors of fully ripe cassis, wild red berry, mocha and light vanilla. The finish is velvety and seamless.
2007 Quintessa Proprietary Red $109 The 2007 looks to be one of Quintessa’s strongest efforts. Dark ruby/purple, with sweet black currant, cherry, and loamy soil notes intermixed with some subtle spice box and background oak, this wine is rich and medium to full-bodied, with round, silky tannins, and an attractive set of aromatics. Very accessible and drinkable now, it should age nicely for 15 or more years. 91pts/Robert Parker.
2008 Saldo Zinfandel $29.99 Well-built, yet rich and stylish, with spicy blackberry aromas and zesty, layered flavors of black cherry and licorice framed by toasty oak. Offers a long, satisfying finish. Drink now through 2015. 91pts./Spectator
Until next time, keep imbibing!
