After opening I only managed a glass before putting a stop in it. On day 2 it had developed quite well and was enjoyable. Still racy but everything seemed integrated.

Took a while to open up but it was fabulous after an hour.

Pretty dreadful sugary fruit bomb. Gets a bit better after an hour but you can always feel the heat. Don't know what these guys at Caymus are playing at :/

Sweet tannins, drinking well now. Might be better in 3 years?

Masses of fruit, powerful with a velvety mouth feel. Glad I still have one bottle but should probably wait a year or two.

Really nice expression of Sonoma Cab from 2013. Lots of dark fruit, lush mouth feel, good finish. Pretty great for the money. One to buy a case of if you can.

Big fruit bomb. Develops a little over a couple of hours but this is as sweet and alcoholic as a cab can taste.

Gorgeous silky wine with plenty of earth tones too. Not too heavy, and not too much white sugar considering how young it is.

Super silky smooth with some light leathery components. Might age nicely.

So young but drinking so well. Quite light but oozing with flavor.

A curious wine. Didn't really open up until day 2 and even then it was still stiff. Unusual flavors.

Tasted cooked. Not undrinkable but wasn't showing anything like what I expected.

Lots of going on. Gorgeous nose and a silky mouthfeel. Tasted old world though. Not 100 pts.

Really nicely balanced. More refined than a 100% viognier. Great value.

Such spectacular integration of flavours, just oozing out. Compared to a similarly priced napa cab this blows it away. Great wine.

Lightweight, soft tannins, some nice lingering red fruit. It has aged well and has class.

Staggeringly good value. Extremely silly mouth feel and long finish. Nice bold fruit.

Surprisingly sophisticated vanilla fruit on the palate. Nice texture if a little thin. Short finish. Great value for money!

Easy drinking, seems ready now. Sweet mild tannins, pleasant nose and typical brunello notes. Dry mouth feel at first that mellows in an hour. Very nice wine!

Very concentrated Cab. Starts off a little loose and loaded with blackberry fruit like a cheaper wine, but comes together within an hour. Loads going on, will possibly benefit from more years untouched. But it's going to be hard to resist.

Pretty decent, great value. Develops over a couple of hours into a wine worth at least twice its price.

Needs more time perhaps but delivers massive amounts of fruit and vanilla notes. Smooth and silky mouth feel. Huge finish that goes on and on.

This was surprisingly interesting. The usual silky mouthfeel with some subtle hints of vanilla oak.

Again, really enjoyed this Syrah. As they go it's pretty much right on the money. Concentrated, lush, not too sweet, plenty of leather. Pricey but I'm not finding many other Syrahs at this level these days.

It was good but for $65 it seems a little pricey. Lovely balance - did everything well.

Phenomenal wine. Held its own against must older Dunn and Dunn Howell Mountain. If I can hold onto it, it will be a world beater in 5-10 years.

Lots of nice dark fruit, smooth mouthfeel. Hints of tobacco but hardly noticeable. Needs about 4 more years to really show.

Such a great wine, I guess this one was ready! Nose was amazingly perfumed with vanilla and sweet wood and the palate was perfectly balanced throughout. Medium bodied and not overdone but pretty close to a perfect expression of the region for me.
