    February 7, 2021 - Still drinking very nicely in 2021

    December 28, 2020 - Not a modern Caymus fan but this bottle from an unpopular vintage showed exceptionally well on Christmas Day. Has the SS's characteristic blackberry, cassis and violet notes, good depth, and a long, elegant finish. Very contemplative. Not yet fully mature. Well-cellared bottles can cruise here for years.

    December 4, 2020 - Clear, deep garnet with pronounced legs.
    Clean, pronounced aromas and fully developed. Meaty, leather and savoury on the nose. Dry, medium + acid, medium soft tannin and medium + alcohol. Pronounced flavours of cooked blackberry and savoury notes. Outstanding, drink now and not suitable for further ageing (12 months for my last bottle).

    October 30, 2020 - Big beautiful cab! Lush and bold... velvety mouthfeel. Ripe fruit and very relaxed tannin. This was my only bottle, but I think there is still some window in front of this. That said, if I had more I would probably drink over next 6-12 months to enjoy it at its best.
