I held on to my last bottle for several years, and it was a mistake. The Caymus flavor profile is still there, but as the intensity of the fruit fades a bit, there isn't much behind it. It seemed a bit cloying and without the structure I expected at this point. Quite a contrast with an '06 Shibumi Knoll I had a few days ago that was just hitting its stride and amazed me with its depth and fine layers.

Consumed at "Bring Your Favorite Barbecue Wines" tasting. This was consistent with past bottles, but the quality was even better. Tannins are almost fully integrated, the fruit was dark and supple, the finish was very long and showed hints of smoke, scrub brush and Christmas spices. This was one of the better wines on the table, and should benefit from five to 10 more years of aging. Another winner from Caymus!

Very nice cabernet. Full of character on the nose and similar on the tongue. Consistent and strong but not overwhelming. Would accompany any meal nicely.

Strong cherry and wildberry aromas on the nose and a consistent vanilla note throughout. Concentrated, but not overly dense. Reasonably well structured, but the tannins are still firmer than you would expect for a 6 year-old Cabernet. A good wine, done in the Bordeaux style, but even with 6 years in the bottle still more tannic than expected.

Big weekend at the Harris's. We had the following wines in order - Pride Mt. Cab 05, Showket Cab 05, Caymus Napa Cab 06, Hanna Bismark 01 and Justin justification 08. All wines were excellent, many had similar profiles and can continue to age. Pride had less oaky flavors, drinking at its peak, Showket was also drinking at it's peak, more Oak but the Caymus Napa and Hanna were both bigger in structure and flavor. Caymus with it's pronounced vanilla profile and the Hanna from start to finish robust fruit and oak flavors, both the All four of these wines had a strong lasting finish. All were bright with flavors not earthy. I loved then all.

Why is it that so many people consider more time in the bottle a panacea for all of a wine's shortcomings? The truth is, 95% of all wines made should be consumed within the first five to 10 years - a fact that is certainly true of this one.

Strong nose. Let set for 20 min. Bursting vanilla, almost to much right now. Leave them in the cellar for another year at a minimum. Supple oak, but think more will come out with age.

Strong powerful blackberry and cherry, with hints of vanilla and cocoa. The wine is rich with low acidy with fruit that lingers on the tongue.

Very dark garnet in color, this wine has a nose of tobacco, wet earth, and well oiled leather. In the mouth it is clean and assertive, with beautiful cherry cola flavors and a clean glassy quality to the flavors. This bright quality is complemented by well integrated, soft tannins that caress the palate as the wine heads for a chocolate scented finish. Lovely.

Very tasty. No time to take notes that evening, but I simply know I will revisit.

A flawed bottle may be affected by cork taint, heat (maderized), oxidation, or excessive sulfur. Additionally, some people consider wines tainted by Brettanomyces (Brett), a non-spore forming genus of yeast, a flaw although there is much controversy surrounding the subject.
