Just tasted ‘18. Dark Ruby with aromas of ripe berry fruit and floral spice, pure Caymus signature style, easy drinking, as always. On the palate flavors of ripe blackberry, black cherry and currants with complex spice showing notes of cacao, cinnamon and rich vanilla oak. Fine soft tannins, nice mouthfeel, great balance with acidity, long finish, ending with notes of oak and mineral notes. Nice!

Due to the sheer quantity of this juice that we have on hand, this has become our go-to weekend travel wine

Deep ruby/purple in color with a nose of black cherries, boysenberries, eucalyptus, wet gravel, and a touch of coffee. Full-bodied and smooth, the wine has a unique taste I can’t quite put my finger on. Not sure if my taste buds are off or if the bottle has a flaw. Will taste again later to compare. Update - My tastebuds are fine. Compared with SL Artemis and something is off on this bottle. May return.

Smooth, dark fruit, not tannic, seems like they added some residual sugar. Good wine but for the price tag..... not so sure.

Sharp fruity flavors, bright purple-red colors. A good solid young Cab.

Dry, very fruity palate. Deep red purple colours. Smell of berries, fig, some chocolate. Fabulous paired with rich charcuterie, fruits and cheeses. Bold flavour, and great finish. Best after opening up a bit.

Full bodied Napa cab from one of the longest standing wineries. Silky smooth, decent complexity, well balanced.

Meh. Seemed over-extracted, under complex, and a bit too sweet on the finish.
