Caymus is too commercialized for me.

Don’t get me wrong, it’s a really well made Napa Cab…. BUT. You can get it at any LCBO, and the quantity is pretty much endless.

Enough of the rant: dark fruit. Oak.

Back to the rant… for the price I can buy any Italian wine not named Gaja or Quintarelli.

Whatever.

Black currant and vanilla aromas, initially, later floral note emerges. Black currant and black pepper flavors, slightly overripe fruit, 14.8% alc/vol. Decant several hours.

2014 - still sweet. Jammy fruit and relaxed tannins. Strawberry aftertaste.

Worked nicely with a wagyu. Very good, but not memorable.

Seemed like the right time to open this. The candy like flavor that I see people complain about had blown off this wine and it just had this incredible purple inky color and rim to it. Very enjoyable. Still had good fruit and sweetness without losing too much luster. Caymus used to age forever but I would drink these up by 10th bday.

A favorite of mine. Fruit forward with easy going plum, black cherry and blueberry supported with the standard Caymus vanilla back.
