One of the better Speical Selects that I have tried. Hints of ripe cherry and black currant with a subdued earthiness that ends seemlesly. I would reccomend sitting on this wine for a few more and then enjoy over the next decade.

Wow, really beautiful nose and tastes extremely well, like a much older wine. Big fruit with a bit of tannin in the middle and finish, overall this wine is great from every aspect.

Caymus has crafted an elegant and potent cabernet that I reluctantly drank in the absence of food. This turned out to be the antithesis of a mistake...my mouth was delighted. Herbaceous notes from the boquet showered me with Thai basil, green and black teas and a little juniper. With proper oxygenation, it then evolved to a beautiful nose of maple syrup and caramel with subtle hints of fruit starting to surface. Upon finishing my glass I could taste boysenberry and molasses simultaneously. A true expression of wine as a living entity that resurrects upon opening. At 15.4% alcohol, this wine's legs are wearing stilettoes. Drink at 62-64 degrees and enjoy with cocoa powdered steak right off the grill. I will next time. Immense.

Winemaker's Notes:

Special Selection is the name we chose with the first vintage, 1975, to indicate grapes that stood above the others from the moment of harvest through oak barrel aging and, finally, the selection of the blend that we felt deserved this designation. Over the decades, we have continued to recognize the superior character of specific vineyard blocks vintage by vintage. We have also secured long-term farming control—including planting, allowing us to select our preferred rootstock and clones—of Napa Valley vineyards with different slopes, elevation and climates. The primary aromas are of black currants, blackberries, brown spices and dark-roasted coffee beans. In the mouth, the wine is lush and expansive, rich in berry fruit with a firm "grip" that makes the wine’s texture an important part of its character. The finish is long and classic—ripe fruit dominates.
