    Winemaker's Notes:

    The 1990 Cabernet Sauvignon-Special Selection appears to be the best Caymus has produced since 1986 and 1985. Two thousand, six-bottle cases will be released in February, 1994. The wine offers a saturated, dark purple color, and a rich, spicy, oaky nose backed up by generous quantities of jammy blackcurrants. Ripe, highly extracted, and full-bodied, with copious amounts of sweet tannin and layers of fruit, this is a knock-out, flamboyantly-styled Cabernet for drinking over the next 15 or more years.

    Aging extremely well, this is rich, sleek and elegant, with a wide range of black cherry, anise, currant, plum and earth notes that offer depthand complexity, finishing in a long aftertaste. Tannins are softening.--California Cabernet retrospective.
