First reaction is modest nose and too much alcohol which was confirmed with a harshness on tasting. Sign Ivan the tannins hiding rip plum and cherry. Probably should have waited 3-5 years. An 8.3 at this stage so over priced.

Wonderful Petite Syrah based wine. BIG and powerful but elegant at the same time! Ripe blue/black fruit aromas and flavors. Nose has touches of lilac and chocolate. Hints of vanilla, milk chocolate and toasty oak come through on the long finish. Deep Maroon/Purple color. Underrated varietal and love the fact that the Caymus Team refers to the grape this wine was made from under its traditional name of Duriff.
