The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection exhibits an opaque purple color, slightly more toasty oak in the aromatics, and explosive richness on the attack, mid-palate and length. The nose is slightly more restrained than in the regular bottling, but there is no doubting the Special Selection is a cut or two above the Napa bottling when it hits the palate. Extraordinary purity of fruit, creme de cassis, licorice and incense all emerge from this full-bodied, iconic classic. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 25+ years.

Opaque crimson color, intriguing nose of freshly tilled Napa vineyard soil. The presence of this wine includes fine textural components balanced by an array of flavors including; ripe cherry, dried rose petal, cacao, mocha and cassis. A seamless, rich and alluring, youthful Napa Cabernet. I find this vintage perfectly complex and balanced. This will go down in our books as a difficult year that yielded a small production of very fine wine. - Chuck Wagner, Owner and Winemaker ** Only 6 in Stock **

A seductive style that’s openly fruity, showing supple plum and black cherry notes, with floral scents and spices, turning creamy and gaining a mocha-espresso-vanilla scent that’s enticing. Finishes with a smooth texture, fine-grained tannins and then another burst of fruit. Drink now through 2025.

Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon is the only wine in the world twice honored as "Number one wine in the world" by the Wine Spectator magazine (chosen amongst approximately 10,000 wines). In addition, this wine was honored with the highest average score rating by the same magazine over the last 15 years.
