Rich and delicious! This dark and delicious wine is absolutely stellar! Dark plum, fig, stewed berries, dark chocolate, baked goodies, an absolutely gorgeous wine! Enjoy now or cellar for 20+ years. Tasted November 2016. 96 points. Matt Steeves - www.quercusvino.ca
Monique Sosa - Accredited Sommelier rated this wine as 94/100 with the following review:

Incredible, inky purple-red gorgeous black fruit! I am loving the spice (cinnamon and cardamom), the juicy concentrated black fruit (cassis and black plum), the rich full-bodied texture, and high but well-developed and integrated tannins. Remarkable! Tasted Nov 2016 - @sommsosa | bespoketastings.ca
Caymus Special Selection (2013) is sweet dark chocolate on the nose from generous oak aging. Fleshy sweet black plums and blackberries. Full-bodied and supple. Who has a trust fund? This round's on you. - Community Wine Reviews

Unquenchable by Natalie MacLean

Natalie MacLean is a new force in the wine writing world ‐ a fiesty North American answer to Hugh Johnson and Jancis Robinson. She can write beautifully about wine.

The Financial Times of London

There are very few people in the wine world who "get it" and Natalie is one of those who brings more fun to a buttoned-up and stodgy game.
