Only the best barrels in the best years! Caymus Special Selection 2014

Caymus Vineyards have been making wine in the Napa Valley town of Rutherford since 1972. It is a family run business with all members of the Wagner clan involved in the wine production.

The Caymus Special Selection is the flagship wine of the Wagner family and is comprised of the very best barrels of the vintage. This wine is not produced in difficult years. Cabernets are produced under the winemaking hand of Chuck Wagner.

In his words:

“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.”

Pushing the limits of richness and concentration, this Cabernet is enjoyable upon release or improves with aging a decade or more. Fine, luxurious tannins give structure to intense flavours of supple cacao bean, chocolate and dark fruits.

Critical acclaim agrees, the wine is rated over 90 points by various writers and publications.
