Caymus Vineyards Special Select Premier Cabernet Sauvignon Napa 1995
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.

1995 Caymus Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection - USA - Region: California - Apellation: Napa Valley - Cabernet Sauvignon - 750 ml
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.

Nevertheless, it is an outstanding Cabernet Sauvignon.
