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.
Opaque crimson color, intriguing nose of freshly tilled Napa vineyard soil. The presence of this wine includes fine textural components balanced by an array of flavors including; ripe cherry, dried rose petal, cacao, mocha and cassis. A seamless, rich and alluring,
youthful Napa Cabernet. I find this vintage perfectly complex and balanced. This will go down in our books as a difficult year that yielded a small production of very fine wine.
"A seductive style that’s openly fruity, showing supple plum and
black cherry notes, with floral scents and spices, turning creamy
and gaining a mocha-espresso-vanilla scent that’s enticing. Finishes
with a smooth texture, fine-grained tannins and then another
burst of fruit."
"The 2010 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection is, big, rich, voluptuous and totally sexy. Mocha, chocolate, plums, sweet spices and black cherries jump from the glass in this full-bodied, intense wine. This is one of the more immediate wines of the vintage, but all the elements are very nicely balanced. Once again Caymus has produced a gorgeous Special Selection that is delicious on its own, but that is also remarkable for a relatively large production of 9,600 cases that will make it easy to find."
