2 great Cabernets: Caymus and Kenwood Artist

For me, these were a great treat, as I would normally not be able to afford either one. MSRP is around $75, which means if you shop carefully, you should be able to get them for about a Ulysses S. Grant per bottle. I was at the Walnut Creek Art & Wine Festival at Heather Farms, and they were selling glasses of each for an Alexander Hamilton per glass. What a bargain.
I did think the Kenwood was better: richer, fuller, more buttery, and definitely ready to drink now. Caymus was equally heavenly, but a bit more fruity and perhaps needing another year or two in the bottle for peak enjoyment. Still, both were great and I loved ‘em both.
