Super offering in an off year. Slightly less fruit allows secondary aromas and pyrazine to show along with the oak. More subdued than the 2010 but my favorite between the two.

Always solid with ripe fruit, velvet smooth tannins and almost imperceptible acidity.

Typical Caymus extraction and flavors. Almost makes you think you're drinking some Syrah-infused Cab.
I "love to hate" this style but tasted blind I'll stick with my honest rating.

There is some serious RS here and a lot of super ripe (even raisinated) fruit here, but it sure does go down easily

Big, fruity, jammy. Showing some character that will develop. Actually liked it much then I thought I would.
