Caymus Vineyards Special Select Premier Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 1995

Winemaker's Notes:

93 points Wine Spectator: Sleek and well-structured, with a braid of exotic smoke, currant, green olive and herbal flavors that drape together nicely, holding a tight focus and showing how ripe, supple tannins can integrate without dominating. Finishes with a dash of mocha and spice.--1995 California Cabernet retrospective. Drink now through 2010. 2,000 cases made.

...an attractive bouquet with lavish quantities of toasty new oak and black currants. There is moderate tannin good purity and an open-knit sexy style. If the wine had not fallen a bit short on the mid-palate it would have merited an even higher score... Robert Parkers Wine Advocate.

The 1995 boasts a dark ruby/purple color as well as an attractive bouquet with lavish quantities of toasty new oak and black currants. There is moderate tannin, good purity, and an open-knit, sexy style. If the wine had not fallen a bit short on the mid-palate, it would have merited an even higher score. It should drink well for 10-15 years. Based on the fame of this winery and the price of the wine, one would expect this Cabernet to compete with Colgin, Bryant Family Vineyards, Screaming Eagle, Araujo, and Harlan Estate. It does not. Nevertheless, it is an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon.
