Community Tasting Note

  • Yack Man Likes this wine: 90 points

    June 22, 2014 - As many have stated, you pretty much know what your are getting with Caymus, so..... If you don't like this style, don't drink it (no offense). I say, if you drink it now you should give it a long decant. There are certainly some very dominant quality / sensual aspects to this 2012 vintage, but I think it get better with some aging and the point score will ascend with time. 90 points for now.

    6/27/14, 8:43 AM - I am not trying to hack on Yack here, but I don't see how a couple hour decant is going to help this out. I had some the first night and based my score on that. If I had based it on my second nights tasting, where the bottle had obviously breathed for a bit, my score would be lower then the 87. I'm just saying.
