Nose of cassis and French oak – even before the first taste, an intense, rich, ripe, intriguing wine captures the imagination.
Seamless and complex harmony – full, rich, exciting and ever-ruminating. A momentary evolution in the glass with fine and abundant tannins balanced by fruit-driven character. Soft and slightly gritty.
The 2016 growing season was close to perfection, with dry climatic conditions and moderate temperatures. Full ripeness was achieved prior to onset of winter – a classic Caymus Special Selection.
Best 5-10 years from vintage date. However, the wine is produced to be enjoyed upon release or can be cellared a decade or more.
Scarlet red color.
