When i drank this delightful wine i saw zeus himself come before me and asked me for this wine. If this wine was a one of my 12 super models she would be kristy (the kinky one ;)). 8/7.325 would use as anal plug.

What a disgusting grape syrup alcohol infused mess. What the hell happened to Caymus and why are they labeling this cab?

Extracted enough to look like a dark inky Malbec, nose is hot and like a big glass of undiluted cassis. This has gotta be at least 15% Petite Sirah--the palate is just a chocolate jam bomb; actually reminds me specifically of those shark fruit snacks which were my favorite in my lunch box growing up. Nostalgia aside, not what I want in my Cabernet. This is awful, at any price point, much less the HIGHER price they have the '13 at. Maybe they should blend some Meiomi in for complexity.

Vanilla overpowered everything else that might be lurking in background. Silky smooth though.

I hate it. But i love it. I truly dislike the wine itself, but I love selling the hell out of magnums all night

A decided improvement on the 2012. The "41st" anniversary with the new label. This has a high note of tobacco and a tannic and high acidic structure at first gulp. These will definitely round out in due time. Should be decanted a few hours at least. Gonna get much more plush and blueberry styled as it goes, extreme purple staining color. 13 over 12 anytime for me!

With the time the fruit has mellowed although there is still a lot of it. Full and rich. Lots of dark berries. But still some brightness. It’s actually quite good. It can lay down for several more years.

I'm really astounded how little I respect this. Tastes like blackberry pancake syrup. So much hang time. Dial it back. Give me some subtlety. This is a huge disappointment.
