WINE SPECTATOR “OUTSTANDING 92”: “Full-blown, ripe and rich, with intense and sharply focused dried currant, wild berry and blackberry fruit that's still fairly tannic at this stage. Ends with a long, persistent finish. Best from 2010 through 2015.” TASTING NOTES: “Simply stated, we believe this is the tastiest Caymus Napa Cabernet bottling ever released! Thick, weighty texture that is oh so silky smooth then featuring rich flavors of ripe, dark plums and semi sweet cocoa then finishing with a deliciously savory hint of toasted caramel that lingers pleasantly for a full 30 seconds. Enjoy now after decanting ½ hour or anytime over the next 5 years, peaking around 2012 in our estimate. 94 points”
