Dark purple, medium legs. Orange peel. Still fruity, medium fine grainy tannins. High acidity. Not as balanced as when it was younger, but still good potential to soften.

Perfect cork. Always a gorgeous wine - however, it has peaked and is looking down the other side of the hill. No bricking of course, however, just a tad thinner than the last time. Went down super smooth.

Bought this at auction at 2014 Camillus house dinner in Miami. Unfortunately the cork on this bottle is loose, and air has been seeping in, and wine seeping out - only saw it upon removing capsule. A lesser wine would have been completely ruined, however this one only partially ruined. I hope the other 5 bottles don't have the same cork issue.

Great Rhone blend, made quite unique by the addition of Cinsault to the Syrah, Grenache and Carignan

Fabulous Italian Bordeaux blend - tempted to give higher score, which it will certainly earn with more time in bottle.

Inky black. Juicy, tarry, smooth - alcohol completely masked by body, which is delicious

6/27/2014 - Wamrod wrote: 87 points

not as good as the Thorigny Petillant, which I am accustomed to, and is lovely

This wine suffers from a slightly rotten nose, as tho some of the grapes had already been departed from this world for a few days before fermentation

A shame, as Chenin Blanc sparklers are one of my favs

2007 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon

Napa Valley more

5/1/2014 - Wamrod wrote: 93 points

What a fantastic "entry level" wine from Caymus

Midnight core, deep dark purple, with the slimmest of meniscus, just barely allowing a hint of purple red at the edge

Nose is rich and clean, yet savory. Blackberry, blackcurrants, pipe tobacco, vanilla and soy

Palate is wonderful, just as savory, with meat, soy sauce, umami, all carried on cool blue fruit - a huge vanilla appears midway, and carries all the way through the long finish..

Super fine tannins melt in your mouth and are almost indiscernible.

I can't believe I didn't buy more of these - down to only two bottles, which I am determined to save for many more years
