    April 11, 2021 - Definitely getting better. This wine is maturing and is on its way to becoming great. I can’t say that about the other vintages of this wine lately. Dark fruit but not over powering some spice, rose petal, fennel, limestone, tobacco, and some earthy loamy hints. Again with grilled meats. I’ll try and wait another year before drinking another to see how it continues to age.

    April 3, 2021 - Dark purple color. Decanted for 90 minutes. Creme de cassis, vanilla, milk chocolate nose. Heavily extracted palate, creme de cassis, ultraripe, big, spicy, vanilla, oak, oak, oak. Not sure where this is going to go, but it is very much over the top for me right now. Score reserved, but sub 90.

    March 30, 2021 - haven’t had this wine for a couple years. Last time I had it I was kind of disappointed because I thought maybe the wine was starting to fade decided not to drink my remaining stash as I only have one case left. But I’ll tell you what, this bottle is singing. The fruit is forward but not overpowering. It is not flabby and has nice structure with a strong black berry/cherry tone. The tannins are there but are not gripping and not chewy. The finish is long 2 to 3 minutes sometimes more. The alcohol content is not too heavy and it’s very smooth and luscious wine. This is drinking better than some of the other Caymus vintages I’ve had and better than a lot of the higher end wines in my cellar. I’m glad I have a case left I just hope my wife doesn’t find it.
