CAYMUS VINEYARDS CABERNET SAUVIGNON SPECIAL SELECTION 2010 (2)

Napa Valley.

The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection exhibits an opaque purple color, slightly more toasty oak in the aromatics, and explosive richness on the attack, mid-palate and length. The nose is slightly more restrained than in the regular bottling, but there is no doubting the Special Selection is a cut or two above the Napa bottling when it hits the palate. Extraordinary purity of fruit, creme de cassis, licorice and incense all emerge from this full-bodied, iconic classic. It can be enjoyed now and over the next 25+ years. October 2013 WS 96 WA 98

CAYMUS VINEYARDS CABERNET SAUVIGNON SPECIAL SELECTION 2011 (2)

Napa Valley.

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. It is a terrific success for the vintage. Drink: 2013-2025 WS 94 WA 95
