April 22, 2016 - Agree with previous comments that the wine is marginally thin, but not a flaw. This is not highly extracted. A more pure expression of Napa cabernet. Didn't pick up on much layering or complexity so wouldn't let it age any longer. Good, but simple.

February 7, 2016 - Very good at this stage. Finesse and class to spare. The folks that think this is thin or light should run out and buy some 2013 Caymus- you won't be disappointed with the overdone, overly sweet, over-extracted mess that it is.

December 12, 2015 - decent cab, but agree with others that it's lacking body, its a little thin. Fruit profile is nice and it's easy drinking so it will be a crowd pleaser. Drink up!

October 10, 2015 - PnP, and had with Grilled Filet Mignon. Wine is in a real good window right now, but I'd smoke em if I got em. Round and somewhat lush, Red fruit, a hint of dirt/barnyard and soft tannins. Easy drinker that tasted real good...Glad I paired it with a Filet, might not have gone as well with a ribeye
August 13, 2015 - Purchased on closeout from a grocery store, this must not have been that well stored, because there was a hint of oxidation. Otherwise you can tell it was good, but something was missing.
