New release                                New release from Caymus! Limited. Chuck Wagner and his winemakers promised themselves "a new wine bearing the Caymus name would have to be great - or, it would not be bottled". previous vintage 93 Points Wine Spectator: "Dark and plush, this combines structure with polish, offering notes of ripe blackberry, dark chocolate, grilled herb and toasty spice that linger toward refined tannins. Drink now through 2025." Winemaker Chuck Wager: "A velvety purple with ruby-red highlights, the 2016 vintage of Grand Durif features an abundant one of dark plums and baked blueberries, woven with scents of lavender, white rose petals, sweet smoke and brown spice. Entry on the palate is smooth, yielding to a pop of high, luxurious tannins that then sneak back, revealing lush fruit flavors of dark berry cobbler. What gives this wine its singular character are the tannins - strong yet supple, pronounced while being strikingly soft. The finish is long, with warm, evocative notes of unsweetened cocoa. Still quite young, this vintage can be enjoyed now and also has tremendous aging potential." ~ Chuck Wagner

"Odedi" Delectable Pro

A great Petit Sirah from the Wagner family. Showing black fruits with chocolate notes, wood, vanilla, cloves, tobacco, coffee, Coke, spices and black pepper. Full bodied and bold with medium acidity and nice legs. Dry and extremely fruity on the palate. Might have some RS. Nice length on the finish with fine tannins. Big bold and beautiful. 92 points. 14.6% alcohol by volume

Holy moly, this is a mocha bomb! Cocoa and spice dominate, but are offset by deep dark fruits, spice and balanced tannins. Wonderful, but not for the faint of heart!
