Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon 2004
from Napa Valley, California
Special Selection is the name we chose with the first vintage, 1975, to indicate grapes that stood above the others from the moment of harvest through oak barrel aging and, finally, the selection of the blend that we felt deserved this designation.
Over the decades, we have continued to recognize the superior character of specific vineyard blocks vintage by vintage. We have also secured long-term farming control—including planting, allowing us to select our preferred rootstock and clones—of Napa Valley vineyards with different slopes, elevation and climates.
The primary aromas are of black currants, blackberries, brown spices and dark-roasted coffee beans. In the mouth, the wine is lush and expansive, rich in berry fruit with a firm "grip" that makes the wine's texture an important part of its character. The finish is long and classic—ripe fruit dominates.

I had two bottles of the Caymas 2003 Special Selection on a recent Norweign Cruise. This wine beats everything out of Bordeaux. So Big, and Luscious! An Olfactory sensation not to be missed.

A delicious wine, my new favorite, beating out Opus One. I tasted this wine with several top Bordeauxs and the franco-wines couldn't compare to the Caymus.
