    August 2, 2020 - Dollops of the typical plum with clarinets of fig and just a tickle of passion fruit. This baby was the real deal, crying a little at first, but not staying up all night. A nose like Doris Day with the finish of Secretariat--big, bold, strong, and nobody within 7 lengths. Enjoy!

    July 27, 2020 - Opaque purple color turning violet at the rim with a reflective edge. The nose gives off ripe stewed plums, blueberry compote and glycerin coated smoked oak. The palate is full-bodied, unmistakably new world, with a velvety texture on high octane. Ripe blueberry, dark cherry, dark chocolate, rose petals, and espresso form the core. This is classic Caymus - ripe, voluptuous and powerful. Finishes long and elevated with dusty tannins. Drink now until 2035.

    July 4, 2020 - Decanted briefly. This is singing right now, among the best Caymus I've enjoyed. Plentiful dark fruit, leather, licorice, robust tannins, dried leaves, long finish. Great crowd pleaser. Great steak wine.

  • sunnylea57 Does not like this wine:

    June 23, 2020 - Everything I dislike in red wine: a blast of alcohol heat on the nose; overripe, sweet fruit; flabby, low acidity and structureless; gobs of milk chocolate. I get that this is right in the wheelhouse of some people. À chacun son.
