One of the best California cabs I've had this year. Last of three bottles, in temperature-controlled cellar since release. Double-decanted about an hour before drinking. Some sediment in bottom of bottle. Big, fresh nose upon opening, even better after an hour. Big classic Cab flavors of berry and cassis, but cloying or syrupy like some Cali cabs. Moderate refined tannins. Very enjoyable — wife proclaimed it to be "very, very good" (her highest praise). About at peak, IMHO, but should hold for a couple more years, perhaps longer.
This was a dark purple, fruit filled bomb with a hint of sweetness with some significant tannins. It is not really ready to drink in terms of being at its peak but I love older style wines. it maybe ready to drink in 5 years. This is a smooth wine also. Seems to have more fruit and longevity than many other Caymus I have had.
