Hans Kruger Classic (Suite 100): Hmm, my birthyear and out of magnum. Lets see what this offered! Surprisingly still rich with lots of black, bold fruit, rich and chocolatey. Very similar in style to new vints from Caymus. Black currants, spices, touch of menthol. A touch on the flabby side, overall. The tannins are pretty restrained and probably at or near its peak. Opens up to more dried fruits, fig, fruitcake. Pretty interesting. On par with the '78 Mondavi from mag.
Tasting of 11 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignons. showed a beautiful nose, medium/big body in the mouth with solid cabernet fruit, long, rich, fruity finish with hints of tannin and acid that suggests it needs 4 more years. My #2 and Group tie #7.
