Red Schooner by Caymus Transit No. 1

SKU: 3103000920710962Categories: , ,


Transit No. 1 red blend is sourced from famed regions of southern Australia, the Barossa Valley and McLaren Vale. Mostly Shiraz with a small amount of Cabernet Sauvignon, Transit 1 is bold yet nuanced, featuring scents of smoky meat, chocolate and wet soil. A hint of mint on the palate stems from native trees. Just like the Red Schooner Malbec from Argentina is known by the “voyage” that produced it, this wine is called a sequential “transit.” A dark, swirling purple, this wine has a wildness to match. Intense scents of smoky meat, chocolate and wet soil are layered with light wood and whiff of mint. The palate reveals a unique Australian character, featuring flavors of plum and more refreshing mint. Soft, dusty tannins give this wine a textural richness that enhances its aromas and flavors. On the finish, traces of brown spice add a final kick to lush fruit. COMMENTARY: The Red Schooner by Caymus Transit No.1 is powerful and lasting. TASTING NOTES: This wine delivers aromas and flavors of black licorice, black fruit, and oak. Enjoy with grilled baby back ribs. (Tasted: March 19, 2022, San Francisco, CA)
