Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection 2011

Winemaker's Notes:

Caymus Special Selection is the flagship wine of the Wagner family and is comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage. This wine is not produced in difficult years. Caymus Cabernets offer a wide array of aromas and flavors including cocoa, cassis and vanilla. Not yet reviewed; 2010 vintage rated 96 points by Wine Spectator: 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.

A brilliant wine, and one of the stars of the vintage, the 2011 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection boasts aromas of blueberry pie, blackberries, cassis and white flowers. This full-bodied, velvety textured, delicious 2011 is already drinking well, and should continue to do so for 10-12 years. It is a terrific success for the vintage.
