Tasted head to head with 2013 and the 2013 won. 2012 is an over the top fruit bomb. I think, after some time in the cellar, the fruit will thin out and this will be wonderful, for those with patience. I've had similar experiences with Caymus from my cellar, eg. 2007. I can easily understand the "syrupy" tasting notes from others. Definitely not a wine that will be liked by all. Patience.
- Medium forming legs. It's in total harmony with a medium/full body. Round texture with a long finish - Decanted three and a half hours. It needs it. Young wine with a ton of potential. Excellent fruit and excellent "bones".
