Wine Description

(From 2008 Vintage) Open fruit, rich, lush and layered, serving up a complex mix of plum, blackberry, black licorice and spices. Full-bodied and supple-textured, ending with a long, persistent finish that keeps repeating the core flavor themes.

Winemaker's Notes

Caymus Special Selection offers up scents of licorice black currants spice box and a hint of flowers. This deep full-bodied cabernet should last for 10 -15 years.

    Fantastic! Needed a little time to breathe and open up but was very smooth and rich. Drank with the family with Bison and Beef steaks. Delicious.

    (From 2004 Vintage) This wine recently won a blind tasting of High End wines that we conducted. This wine stood out for its "Poetry to the Panel." This opaque dark red wine opens with a lovely and inviting crème de ca...

    (From 2005 Vintage) "A showy young wine that's smooth, rich and concentrated. Delivers firm, intense yet supple layers of currant, cedar, toasty, cedary oak and tannins that firm up, offering hints of mineral, sage and dusty berry. Best from 2009 through 2013. 32,344 cases made."
