Exciting to taste the '15 vintage. Young, but beautiful. Will be a great wine two years from now. Rating upped from 9.1 11/5/16. Rating re-affirmed 3/30/17. Still young and powerful, but more settled and starting to shine. WS 93pts 10/2017. Tasting 4/20 - incredibly smooth now. Rating upped to 93.

Fruit forward, will benefit from more age. Was nice with a sizzling hunk of beef.

Strong red, lots of flavor. Great with tart cheese or steak.

A lot of layers; black raspberry, cassis, spice and licorice. This young Cab will only get better. Picking up on chocolate and plum too. Chewy texture.

A little too over-extracted and boozy for my taste (kind of hot and out of balance), but the flavors aren't awful for $18. #wine #pasowine

Kyle and Gabby brought 2018 vintage for Christmas 2020. Loved it! They said it's one of their favorites.

Strong, bold taste right out of the bottle. Complex notes of brown sugar and oak. Very reminiscent of Caymus special!
