Twice Named Wine Spectator magazine’s “Wine of the Year”
Each year, Caymus sets aside the best barrels of their Cabernet Sauvignon from Napa Valley to produce the “Special Selection.” Distinguished by extremely fine, velvety tannins and enjoyable upon release or with aging. A wine of structure with an intense concentration of supple flavours and dark fruits. “Special Selection” is the only wine in the world honoured twice as Wine Spectator magazine’s “Wine of the Year.”
A blackberry hue, with scents of rich leather, cooked caramel, berries and forest 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.
Chuck Wagner and his late parents, Lorna and Charlie, started Caymus Vineyards in 1972. They were a family of farmers with roots in Napa Valley dating back to the 1850s. Today, the family’s two Cabernet Sauvignons – Caymus Napa Valley and Caymus Special Selection – are among the region’s most celebrated wines.
