    Winemaker's Notes:

    One of the most allocated and collectible Cabernets in the world, Caymus Vineyards Special Selection is crafted from the outstanding barrels of the vintage. Special Selection is produced only in vintages that proprietor Chuck Wagner feels are suitable for this designation.

    We are proud to offer limited amounts of the new release of Caymus Special Selection – dark and intense with deep, rich flavors of black currant, cherry, mocha and spice. A collectible masterpiece!
    Only shipping discounts can be applied to this product, other promotional discounts do not apply.

    Critical Acclaim:

    Firm, intense and well-structured, with a mix of spicy oak, red and black currant, mineral, sage and dusty berry. Turns elegant and refined, yet shows a sturdy backbone on the finish.

    A barrel sample of the 2005 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection offers terrific fruit intensity and purity, a more laid-back style, a meaty, chewy texture, and impressive opulence as well as length. It should evolve for 10-15 years.

    What a great wine! Opened it on Thanksgiving. It opened beautifully with a magnificent bouquet of currant and oak. Soft tannins with tobacco and jam flavors. Absolutely majestic and can cellar for longer. Was the best wine of the night (we opened a Far Niente as well).

    This was the best yet of all the Cabs we have had for our Christmas dinners. Traditionally, we have Silver Oak...this is not second best by any means. Soo buttery!! We are Caymus fans!
