All the usual Caymus traits, sweet, dark, rich, extracted, etc. paired perfectly with BBQ beef brisket from Deep Run Roadhouse ( the best brisket I have ever had) the smokiness of the meat and the richness of the Caymus was a marriage made in heaven. Yum!
Coravin'd a large glass which sat for 40 mins before sampling. Rich and young blue/black fruit on the nose along with some pepper and spicebox; wine is certainly approachable but still tight and extracted (as noted by others), with fine tannins providing a smooth but dry coating of the palate. Oak, vanilla, hint of green back-palate. Needs more air than afforded by the coravin tonite
