    January 11, 2021 - Really liked the ‘16 first time I tried it, last bottle not so much. I know many people hate this wine, I’m excited to try it again and see.

    Very dark purple

    Nose: chocolate syrup, distant sweetness, worn leather, rolling tobacco, oak and cedar, graphite, berry mix. A pretty subtle nose overall.

    Milky kind of light-medium body, a little dry, finish wasn’t overly impressive. Though it is pretty layered and presents black tea and cacao, chocolate syrup, toasted vanilla. Does seem to be kind of lacking some balance. Fruit is definitely there also.

    Definitely improving with time...

    I do like this wine.

    January 3, 2021 - Solid Caymus. Same as previous 2-3 years.

    December 27, 2020 - A solid cab. Strong jammy fruit up front with a hit of chocolate, but not much of a finish.

    November 28, 2020 - US cab “tasting” with fondue; Corison 16, Caymus 16, Dunn 15; all well balanced, smooth and approachable; Corison a “crowd pleaser” with chocolate; Caymus same level but more on the licorice side; Dunn the “weakest”, a bit dull in comparison
