Caymus has one of the most enviable track records of any California winery. Having followed their Cabernet Sauvignons since the early seventies I find it remarkable that this winery has never gone through a slump. Not many wineries anywhere in the world can match the Wagner family s consistent record of success. The 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon (which contains all of the Special Selection since that wine was declassified in 1993) is an opaque ruby/purple-colored wine with a superb sweet nose of toast and blackcurrants. The attack offers explosive levels of fruit. The impression in the mouth is one of fatness sweet fruit and an unctuously thick highly extracted intensity. This gorgeously made Cabernet Sauvignon is the finest non-Special Selection bottling since 1987. It should drink well for at least 15 years. Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

Wonderful coffee bean and vanilla aromas add to the currant plum and spice nuances. Supple well-balanced and very nicely proportioned. No Special Selection was produced this year. Best soon.--1993 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2006. 20 000 cases made. (JL) Wine Spectator.

Cabernet is king at Caymus. During the decade of the nineties, there has been a succession of sumptuous, rich, concentrated, lavishly-wooded, cassis-flavored Caymus Cabernet Sauvignons. The 1993 Cabernet Sauvignon has closed down since bottling, but it is still a deep, dark ruby/purple-colored wine with a tight but promising nose of blackcurrants and sweet vanillin, toasty oak. This backward wine is full-bodied, dense, powerful, as well as tannic. It will benefit from 2-3 more years of cellaring, and keep for 12-15 years
