2015 CAYMUS “SPECIAL SELECTION” CABERNET SAUVIGNON

$179.99

We Knew High Scores we coming for this Caymus Cabernet!

From James Suckling,Aromas of blue fruits, blackberries, tile and lead pencil. Full body, firm tannins and a fresh, bright finish. Layered and intense with white-pepper and salt undertones. Love the finish to this racy young wine. Beautiful blue fruits! Drink in 2020 and onwards. From biodynamic grapes. James Suckling 97 POINTS

From Wine Spectator, “This delivers almost unbridled plum sauce, blackberry preserve and melted licorice flavors, but keeps a smoldering edge for form while picking up alluring black tea and incense notes on the broad finish. There’s a long echo of chocolate adding to this hedonist’s delight. Drink now through 2032.” Wine Spectator 95 POINTS

Rich and extracted, and with velvety tannins that are almost impossible to detect, Caymus Vineyards performs on a grand stage with their exuberant, plump, beautifully ripe Cabernet Sauvignons, a style that they’ve undoubtedly pioneered.  Their top wine, which they call the Special Selection is the ONLY wine in the world to be honored twice, as the #1 wine in the world by the Wine Spectator.  With zero hard edges, the 2015 Caymus Special Selection Cabernet Sauvignon overs the entirety of your palate with a compelling crescendo of sweet blackberries, crème de cassis, blueberry pie and creamy vanilla.  Perennially high-scoring, and always the Best Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, you won’t want to wait to long to secure a case of the allocated 2015 release.

Description

Caymus Cult Cabernet has built a huge fan following… Thrilling to taste, the irresistible flavors are achieved through extended hang time from the best vineyards in Napa… (hang time is a technique which leaves fruit on the vine unusually long,) allowing it to develop an attractive suppleness and irresistibly mature flavors.  Caymus Special Selection is created from a barrel selection process, using only the winery’s best barrels, resulting in a flawlessly built, compelling wine… Top Wineries in Napa with the Best Napa Cabernet Sauvignon, a highly collected Cult Wine, and The Best Red Wine, there are so many reasons to recommend a case for your collection of fine wines and the Best Napa Cabernet Sauvignon…   Cheers!

2015 CAYMUS “SPECIAL SELECTION” CABERNET SAUVIGNON

Winery Notes: “We set aside the best barrels of our Cabernet to produce Special Selection – the only wine in the world honored twice as Wine Spectator magazine’s “Wine of the Year.” Pushing the limits of richness and concentration, this Cabernet is enjoyable upon release or improves with aging a decade or more. Fine, luxurious tannins give structure to intense flavors of supple cacao bean, chocolate and dark fruits”

Ground Shipping Included on ANY Mixed 15 bottle Case (to most states)

Winemaker Notes – Caymus Special Selection 2015

A blackberry hue, with scents of rich leather, cooked caramel, berries and forrest floor. Youthfully forward on the palate, supple and appealing with rich concentration. Tannins are abundant, yet fine, and persist throughout a layering of textural sensation. The richness of this wine correlates with the fine dust of the Napa Valley soils. Finish expresses oak (French barrel) and Caymus fruit-forward impressions. This wine is tannic, rich and squared off by our signature suppleness.
