Dark Ruby with aromas of rich berry fruit and hints floral and earthy spice. On the palate youthful flavors of cherry, plum and sweet blackberry preserves with complex zesty notes of cacao, spice, forest floor and rich oak. Silky supple tannins, great balance with acidity, long finish, outstanding mouthfeel, ending with oak, mineral and spice notes. WOW! Tasting Sample!

Dark. The cusp of a stylistic transition.

An excellent Caymus SS, though not the best, as persistent bitter tannins take a small toll. Espresso roast and dark red fruit, miles and miles to go.

Dark garnet red with a ruby hue. Aged characteristics on the nose with some tobacco leaves, anise, damp leaves and dark berries. Medium tannins (6/10) and full bodied. Quite earthy on the palate with some dried cherries, cigar box and some light leather. Long finish with solid acidity. Drink till 2023.

While (to my palate) not really varietal correct and certainly not my preferred style of Napa Cab this is however a solid and flawless wine that will have plenty of fans.

Perhaps the most promising Caymus SS in a long time. Nose of pure cassis. Big and laden with liquorice, black fruit, dark oak, fine tannins that linger forever. This beast needs another 5+ years, but has cedar and cocoa notes that suggest this will get much better.
