Dark red. Black raspberry and smoked meat on the nose; reminiscent of syrah. Chewy, ripe and open-knit, with a sweet/saline quality to its flavors of blue fruits and chocolate. The very ripe, long finish features firm but harmonious tannins.

The Cayuse En Chamberlain 2008 Widowmaker is an essence of cassis laced with sloe berry as well as floral distillates that would seem remarkable for any wine from Cabernet Sauvignon, let alone when subjected ' as was the bottle in question this March ' to side-by-side comparison with Baron's Bionic Frog of the same vintage. There is a remarkable creaminess of texture and sheer melted fondue of tannins here that I wouldn't have believed possible. Is this seductive Cabernet Sauvignon as complex as the greatest examples of its variety? Hardly, I think. But it finishes with extraordinary length and there are stony and bittersweet herbal nuances as well as a hint of chocolate to parallel its persistent florality and intensely luscious fruit. Look for at least a decade of delight.

Black olive, tar and deep currant and spice flavors make up the flavor profile of this polished, generous, mouthfilling Cabernet. Distinctive and harmonious.
