Rich, plush, velvety mouthfeel. Incredible nose fills the glass and then the room. Ripe red fruit with hints of vanilla and chocolate. Excellent.

I am a Caymus fan. But I didn't taste anything better than their regular Cab in this wine. Maybe my expectations were too high. Dark berries with road tar and camphor on the nose. Very deep body with a full mouthfeel and silky tannins. Very well integrated and a smooth, long finish.

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.
