Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection

Wine Details

Wine Description

The 2003 Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection offers up scents of licorice, black currants, spice box, and a hint of flowers. This deep, full-bodied, chunky 2003 should last for 13-15 years. Intense, complex and concentrated, with a vibrant stack of flavors built around currant, blackberry and wild berry, with pretty oak nuances on the finish, along with ripe, firm tannins. Excellent sample.

    Rating: 4/5 - As reviewed by Decanter. Blackberry and damson fruit, roasted coffee beans. Bold flavours, rich and full bodied. Softly structured but balanced acidity giving freshness. Sensitive use of spicy oak, lush finish. Drink 2009-12.

    Rating: 89/100 - As reviewed by International Wine Cellar in Issue 126, May/June 2006. ($70) Good ruby-red. Currant, plum, mocha, cola and sweet oak scents on the nose; showed blackberry and cassis with aeration, as well as a whiff of oak char. At once juicy and creamy in the mouth, with firm acids framing the supple red fruit and tobacco flavors. The sweet finish features fine-grained, building tannins.
