Very nice wine that is drinking great right now! The flavors are all integrated, and nothing stood out as overbearing (including the oak!). This is what a great Cabernet should taste like! I don't see it improving much more, but it should keep ok for a few more years....My advice would be drink it more sooner than later (why chance it and it is drinking excellent right now! This is a wine sure to please everyone's palate (even those that don't care for Caymus because they think it is over-oaked).
The body is full, and tannins are smooth and has a wonderful perfumed nose. On the palate, you have a complex wine with layers of black fruit, chocolate, some spice, earth notes, bark and, of course oak...it is silky with no heat, and each sip leaves you wanting another. Very enjoyable wine that is drinking great right now!
Complex with unctuous dark berry fruit and hints of licorice, pencil and dried herbs. Tannins are fine and fading. Fruit still alive but disappointed in the body -- more medium than what I expected. Doesn't live up to the reputation.
