We really wanted to love this, but alas, we think that around 2012 was when Caymus decided to focus on an à la carte presentation, which makes for quite a shallow encounter.
They have tapped into the logic of the Skinner box operant conditioning. We humanoids press a lever (in this case pull a cork), and a one-night-stand promptly arrives in our glass. Us peeps tend to follow the crowd (I present myself as exhibit A), but when you taste this, it makes a splash, but flatters to deceive.

Bright, juicy, cloudy California Mourvèdre (100%) from the Dirty & Rowdy Family. Described as a “snapshot of California Mourvèdre”, the 2018 Familiar comes from vineyards in 5 different appellations: Antle Vineyard in Monterey county, Evangelho Vineyard in Contra Costa (120+ years old vines), Rosewood Vineyard in Mendocino (90+ years old vines), Shake Ridge Ranch in Amador county and Skinner Stoney Creek and Skinner White Oak Flats in El Dorado County. Strawberries, right amount of funk. Delicious — 3 years ago
Because when you place an order to go, order up a BTG wine you haven’t tried while you wait. Dish Sam the man some extra $ and roll on. This was tasty. Perfect transitional rosé. — 5 years ago
Skinner auction demi 24 in owc. Maybe heading downhill?. Nose reticent then opened up in half hr with notes of that peppery cab Franc and earthiness. Palate shows some Bordeaux like wood and earth and tannin. Quite lean but we'll structured and not your New World fruity style. Medium finish. Still a value at less than nine bucks each. Upping score. Opening up after an hour or more. More classic Bordeaux nose. Apparently vineyard was run the old style way with horses! — 6 years ago
