    April 4, 2020 - Decanted for about 90 minutes. Drank well not as jammy from original wine tasting. Could use another few years

    March 29, 2020 - A good bottle of Caymus, but not my favorite.

    March 28, 2020 - This went through a "dumb phase" for me a few years ago, or maybe it was just a couple of off bottles, but it is drinking beautifully now. It is very much from the school of new oak and there is a richness and a warm, vanilla quality to it from that treatment so if that's not your cup of tea, you should avoid with all haste. But it tastes great to me! I would not anticipate 20 more years of aging, though. My guess is drink in the next 10 to be safe.

    March 27, 2020 - Dark and opaque, with a black purple centre and robe, dark cherry rim. Intense nose, sweet dark cherry and black currant fruit, very pure, not a lot of complexity, but very nice. Palate is full bodied, sweet and juicy, loads of dark cherry and blackcurrant fruit, again not a whole bunch of complexity on the palate, but very sweet and pure fruit. Delicious and nicely balanced, but lacking complexity for a higher score. Drinking well, tannins are nicely resolved.

    March 22, 2020 - Wonderful with my charcoal grilled strip,steak. Layers of fruit with a little leather and earth. I suspect that this a very ageworthy wine and in a few years it will show less fruit and more earth. I’ll get back,to you in a year or 2. This has a chance to be great in 3-5 years
