"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.
Barrel Sample: 92-94 Points"
The Wine Advocate
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!
