“Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon is the only wine in the world twice honored as “Wine of the Year” by Wine Spectator Magazine (chosen amongst approximately 10,000 wines).

    • Winemaker’s Notes

      #44 Wine Spectator Top 100 of 2016

      A rich, dense ruby color, hints at the dark fruit nose of blackberry and currant that carries through to the palate, interwoven with complex aromas of black licorice, anise and crème de cassis. On the palate, the wine opens up to reveal an earthiness, with brown spice, cigar box and ripe dark fruits that linger throughout the extracted and long finish. The texture is opulent and rich, yet has a velvety quality with supple density. Rich, fine-grained tannins are balanced with ripe fruit, acidity and oak.

      Critical Acclaim

        Wine Spectator“This zeroes in on a rich, hedonistic core of wild berry, blackberry, plum and currant flavors, with a graceful, elegant mouthfeel and supple, caressing tannins. The long and powerful yet refined aftertaste keeps reverberating fruit generosity while maintaining Cabernet’s strength of personality. Drink now through 2030. “

        Wilfred Wong of Wine.com“Where do I begin? When I tasted the 1975 vintage of this wine (in the early 1980s), I was simply amazed. Though I was much younger then, I instantly knew that this was a wine I had to follow; I have indeed done that and tasted nearly every vintage of this iconic Napa Valley wine. The 2013 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet demonstrates the remarkable journey on which this valley has gone—the wines were formerly lighter and more rustic. Ultra-rich and satisfying, the Special Selection continues to fit perfectly into the ever-changing array of Napa Valley’s “super” Cabernets. This wine shows a deep and opaque black, purple color; rich and expansive in the nose with concentrated cassis and sweet oak, and even shows a hint of perfume. On the palate, the wine is layered and saturated—attributes that have become synonymous with these wines. The finish is smooth and lasting. (Tasted: May 26, 2016, San Francisco, CA)”

        James Suckling“The full-throttle character is here as expected with lots of ripe fruit and toasted oak. Sage and mint. Silky tannins; the ripe fruit dominates. But it shows form and juiciness. Try it in 2019 as it mellows with age.”
