(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.
This wine exemplifies our style of Cabernet out of a great vintage—deep color, rich, concentrated and balanced. 2012 celebrates 40 years of producing our pride and joy, Caymus Vineyards Napa Valley Cabernet Sauvignon.

Caymus Special Selection remains one of the top producers of the supple side of the style range in Napa. The wine is polished, soft and elegant. But it's not light. It's packed with spicy black and red berries, vanilla, smoke, caramel and blackberries and ends with a long, pure, silky finish.
K and I had this wine at Little Alley and loved!!! 40th anniversary Caymus.
Absolutely fabulous. So smooth. Drank it @ Rutherford Grill in Napa Valley.
Amazing...great legs. Bold and smooth with pleasant notes.
Omg. Amazing wine. Blackberry Jam.
Happy New Year!!! (Hic)
