Winemaker Notes

The rich, deep ruby color reflects the magnificent depth this wine has to offer. Lush aromas of ripe black currant, black cherry and cedary oak add luxurious notes to the intense core flavors of fully ripe cassis, wild red berry, mocha and light vanilla. Polished tannins, a full-bodied mouthfeel and velvety texture weave seamlessly to support these vivid fruit impressions to the end.

Critical Acclaim

WS 96
Wine Spectator

A firm, ripe, muscular wine that’s tight, deep, structured, intense and concentrated, serving up a mix of ripe currant, cassis, plum, black cherry and blackberry fruit that’s clean, pure, complex and layered, with touches of anise, cedar and black licorice. Ends with chewy tannins.

JS 95
James Suckling

Seductive nose of blueberries, mulberries, mint, tar, cinnamon, and cloves. Full bodied, with a firm tannin structure. Very round and polished with a firm long finish. Layered and beautiful.

V 93
Vinous / Antonio Galloni

Bright, full ruby. Very sexy nose combines blackberry, plum, mocha, graphite and black pepper, plus a suggestion of reduction. Very suave and fine-grained, showing an attractive restrained sweetness as well as a slightly wild aspect to its plum, dark berry and licorice flavors. The slight reductive quality carries through on the palate but this wonderfully silky wine blossomed dramatically with 24 hours in the recorked bottle to offer more pliant, exotic flavors of dark berries and chocolate. Finishes with ripe, dusty tannins and terrific length. A bit powerful in a 2007 way but finishes with excellent grip. This is probably not going to be a 30-year-wine but give it some aeration if you plan to open it anytime soon.

RP 93
The Wine Advocate

The 2007 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection (100% Cabernet Sauvignon, now bottled earlier than in the past) exhibits an inky/blue/purple color in addition to sweet aromas of cassis, graphite, licorice, tobacco leaf and toasty oak. Bold, flamboyant and opulent, it should drink well for 15+ years.

Caymus
As the Wagner family celebrated the 40th anniversary of Caymus Vineyards in 2012, they thought back to 1972 which Charlie Wagner, Lorna Belle Glos Wagner and their son, Chuck, built their winery among the vines planted on the family's ranch in Rutherford, California - the center of the Napa Valley. In 1975, the Wagners produced their first Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon, which remains the only wine to have twice been named Wine Spectator's "Wine of the Year" (1984 and 1990 vintage).
