Caymus Vineyards Cabernet Sauvignon Special Selection

Wine Details

Wine Description

(2009   Vintage) A flashy, opulent Cabernet. This wine is rich, full-bodied, and loaded with black chocolate, currants and cherry fruit. Notes of baking spices and tobacco add character to the finish. The rich, ripe tannins add incredible texture and depth.
