Caymus "Special Selection" Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon Was 2006
2006 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 94ptsWS "Firm, intense and well-structured, with a mix of spicy oak, red and black currant, mineral, sage and dusty berry. Turns elegant and refined, yet shows a sturdy backbone on the finish. Best from 2009 through 2014." -JL92-94ptsRP "A barrel sample of the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection offers terrific fruit intensity and purity, a more laid-back style, a meaty, chewy texture, and impressive opulence as well as length. It should evolve for 10-15 years." RP"Caymus' Special Selection bottling was first produced in 1975, and every vintage since the original rendition of the wine has stayed true to its name. Favored grape clusters from individual blocks are set aside for Special Selection. The wine is 100% Cabernet Sauvignon, aged in French oak barrels. Special Selection has long been a favorite of mine, being one of those wines that is difficult to describe; you just like it." Gerald D. BoydThis is a California Wine

Wine Spectator ReviewRated 92-94Ripe, spicy, fleshy and intense, with a rich mix of earthy, loamy currant, herb and black cherry fruit that's focused and persistent.Wine Tasting NotesDeep, almost purple crimson color. Concentrated aromas of cassis and plum lead to flavors of dark berry fruits, ripe currant and cocoa, framed by a slightly toasty oak. This incredibly rich and full-bodied wine shows well-structured, silky tannins and a long, velvety finish.
