    September 4, 2018 - Concerned about age which was unfounded. Was well stored and was consistent with expectations of Caymus.

    December 30, 2017 - Starting its decline. Still an amazing Cal cab lapsed with black fruits, coca and tobacco. Feeling a tad dusty with a big mouth coating.
    Looking back on previous notes I say these should be drunk within the next 12-18 months.

    October 8, 2017 - This is what you are hoping for when you open a 16 year old bottle. Silky tannins plenty of fruit perfect balance. Probably good for another 3-5 years.

    October 6, 2017 - An epic Napa Cab. 2001 was a great year and this wine has aged effortlessly. Black fruits and a slight licorice nose. Beautiful fruit that lingers forever with silky soft tannins. Crying because this is my last bottle. Wish I bought 3 more cases. If you have one, open it. There’s no more special occasion than today.
