    January 20, 2020 - Enjoyed this wine in a blind Cabernet Tasting Jan 2020. Garnet color with rich black currant, blackberry, flint, and coffee aromas. Full-bodied, balanced, luscious mouthfeel, complex wine has improved with age and likely to continue for another 3-5 years. An exceptional cabernet sauvignon with a long finish with black fruit, cherries, and hints of vanilla on the palate. Caymus continues to demonstrate masterful winemaking skills in an exceptional organization.

    December 26, 2019 - Excellent showing. Had that sweet violet and powdered sugar donut nose I always get on an SS, followed by piquant blackberry fruit, dark chocolate and cassis. Looooong finish. In a peak space but could coast here for years. I'm putting the drink-by date out to 2025.

    December 23, 2019 - Serially sampled from a bottle purchased upon release and cellared under ideal conditions, this Cabernet has a youthful deep ruby/red robe and remains packed with dark bramble fruits and black currants, accented with notes of licorice, bittersweet chocolate and mulling spices. Full-bodied, low in acidity and very supple on the palate, it hides its 15.2% alcohol and has moderate residual tannins that are silky in texture. At this stage the oak has nicely integrated. Plump on the mid-palate and finishing long, this is in a real good place. Drink now-2024.

    December 21, 2019 - From a magnum. Very nice. Supple fruit and oak. Tannins suggest it still has some good years ahead, but glad I opened tonight for some pre-Christmas cheer.

    December 19, 2019 - On the decline but still halfway up the hill. Dense blue/black fruit, bit of charred pepper, graphite aromas. Medium acidity - tanins are a bit rough but integrated along with blueberry, bitter cocoa, berry jam, teriyaki.
