Interesting. Medium red/ruby. Acidity relatively strong for the fruit. Tannins still present. Would probably have been better a few years ago; on the decline now. Nonetheless, a pleasure to drink and explore. Mellow cabernet flavours and aroma. Well-aged Caymus vintages have more to offer than the young wines, in my opinion. If you still have any, don't delay. The ullage on this wine was well up the neck, near the bottom of the capsule. The 1987 Gruaud Larose tasted along-side was the clear winner.
Medium garnet-red color. Aged nose, more oxidized than I like and without enough compensating aromatic elements of fruit, wood, herbs or vegetable. Dang, this fellow is pretty tired. There's sweetness in the mouth for sure, but not much here to make finishing the glass worthwhile.
