Trivia time, not that most of you don’t already know this, but this is the vintage they didn’t make the SS and its by far IMHO the best Caymus Napa ever. Found this today at a little deli/liquor store here in Palm Springs. Surprise surprise still drinking beautifully.

Very good. Tannins resolved and tertiary flavors and aromas almost paramount. Still has acid and good fruit showing but freshness is lacking a bit, understandably.
