I had this at a dinner with clients about a year ago. While I recall enjoying it, I also remember thinking that it did not quite live up to the reputation of either the vintage or the "Famous Caymus" name. If I recall correctly, it was given scores in the 90-91 range, which is probably about right, in my view.

My best guess is that it's at its peak and although it will easily hold for another 3-4 years, it is unlikely to improve much.
Well, I didn't take detailed tasting notes with this because of the setting but I this was much more fairly rated IMO by WS at 91 points than some others. (i.e. BV Tapestry @94) It definitely was a little astringent and green initially but I was pleasantly surprised with the amount of fruit that was present. Definitely not a dark brooding fruit bomb like a lot of other CA cabs but a pleasant austere wine deserving of 90-91 points. Overpriced at $70. Fair at $40-45.
