Beautiful nose. Surprisingly fresh with good tannins. Eucalyptus on the nose gave it a summer feel. Lovely. Dark fruit. Want more earth but a lovely wine

Even more of a beast than the last one in June but if you like the style it’s outstanding. You know I like the style...

An excellent example steeped in pipe tobacco, pure licorice and black fruit. Benefitting from an hour decant this has miles to go. From magnum.

I don’t drink a lot of this but it showed well with age. Needs a decant to wake it up.

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.
