Kim Crawford Pansy! Rose 2015The first thing that strikes you about this rosé is its deep, vibrant burnt orange colour, a pretty good indication that it's made from pinot noir. And it's not just the colour that's distinctive. Unlike most rosés, which tend to be fairly light and lively, this is robust in texture and weight. The flavours are concentrated, layered, and well defined, the acidity is clean and fresh, and there's a light tannic dryness. This is a rosé that walks down a different path and it's delicious.

Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2013 1.5LCaymus Special Selection is the flagship wine of the Wagner family and is comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage. This wine is not produced in difficult years. Caymus prides itself on producing wines that are as approachable in youth as well at maturity. Aromas and flavors which can only be achieved through "hang time" - a technique which chances the loss of crop if early winter sets in. Leaving the fruit to "hang" on the vine unusually long develops suppleness, increases color, and matures the tannins of the grapes. The wines are abundant in textural tannins yet soft as velvet. Crop thinning, allowing measured sunlight to reach the vine's fruit zone, and waiting for increased ripeness are all part of our viticultural practices. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide array of aromas and flavors including cocoa, cassis and vanilla.
