Caymus Red Schooner Voyage 2
A dense, dark red, this wine opens up with the scent of ripe plums and cherries, layered with hints of unsweetened baking chocolate. On the palate, it is powerful, concentrated, supple and persistent, with generous flavors of French oak that support but don't dominate. The wine carries through to a complete finish, balanced and integrated with soft tannins that imbue it with both structure and balance. Upon receiving the fruit, we employed a slow and delicate fermentation process to extract deep color and rich tannins, and then aged the wine for 14 months in French oak barrels (50% new), with bottling taking place in October of 2012. We have been very excited about Red Schooner for five years and now with an overwhelming welcome to Voyage 1, Voyage 2 is ready for release.
