Winemaker's Notes:

Drank late in 09. Past its prime. ONe dimensional. Smooth still but boring. Glad it was purchased for 20 dollars in early 90's

Dark ruby/purple-colored, with an intriguing nose of spicy new oak, blackcurrants, and a pronounced herbaceousness, this wine exhibits lush, medium to full-bodied, flavors, moderate tannin, fine ripeness, and the lavish oak Caymus Cabernets routinely
