A friend shared this with me today! I had it a few years ago at a dinner and loved it. So velvety smooth with notes of cinnamon. A nice treat!

Was opened on Thanksgiving so I am sure the structure of the wine has changed. Tannins were not biting and there was still some cinnamon, sweet cherry fruit. 1 Liter bottle.

NO pseudo academic vino-babble; just a great wine and among the most enjoyable domestic wine in a very long time shared with spouse and friends on the balcony of Alfond Inn in Winter Park, FL.

Gift from a customer/friend at work. Really appreciate the subtlety of this wine, not overdone. Cassis, cedar, cigar box, juniper berry, herbs, medium tannins, nice acid. Could’ve waited, but had a steak :)

Beautiful dark burgundy color with aromas of earthy forest fruits, licorice, and leather. After it opens, it has beautiful vanilla flavors. Rich, full bodied, and chewy. Would be a wine to enjoy with a nicely marbled steak!

nice dry, i can taste notes of barrel...i feel a brief “hint” of acidity... i really enjoy this wine with some aged manchego and prosciutto...its kinda expensive though...

My first Caymus experience: smooth, silky and so well refined I understand the price tag. Oh so perfect on the nose and Initial entry on the palette, tapering to a full bodied experience that can convince anyone of the province of fine Californian wine!

Good legs. Rich, plum color. Full bodied nose and taste. Smooth mouth feel and finished with subtle tannins.
