Community Tasting Note

    May 13, 2014 - Got my first shipment today and couldn't resist opening a bottle. Popped and poured. I taste a lot of wine futures and like to drink wines across their lifespan. While this wine is not a "wine future" it is young and a bit disjointed similar to a freshly bottled wine (possible mild bottle shock as well from shipping). Nonetheless there are classic Caymus characteristics Present. Nose: strong aromatics of sweet young black fruit, milk chocolate, cedar and vanilla. Palate: highly extracted blackberries, slightly bitter red fruit, currants, vanilla, cedar, mocha and chocolate. Mouthfeel: Soft silky tannins, light fruit weight, thin mid palate with a relatively long warm finish. Overall, a bit disjointed at this phase, but has the potential to turn into a very nice fruit forward classic warm vintage Caymus. I don't think structurally this one is for long term aging, but given a few years in the cellar to integrate this should lead to a very enjoyable wine. 93-95pts. I'll revisit this same bottle tomorrow and any relevant updates.
