This zeroes in on a rich, hedonistic core of wild berry, blackberry, plum and currant flavors, with a graceful, elegant mouthfeel and supple, caressing tannins. The long and powerful yet refined aftertaste keeps reverberating fruit generosity while maintaining Cabernet's strength of personality. Drink now through 2030. 21,249 cases made. Collectibles. Top 100: 2016, Rank: 44. Score - 95. (James Laube, winespectator.com, Oct. 15, 2016)
Concentrated aromas of cassis and plum lead to flavours of dark berry fruits, ripe currant and cocoa and a slightly toasty oak. A rich and full-bodied wine that shows well-structured, silky tannins and a long, velvety finish.
A deep, dark red, this Special Selection features a nearly assertive and alluring aroma of sweet humidor tobacco. The nose is the result of lovely French Oak and ripe, high-quality Cabernet, with the singular quality that awakens the senses and demands their attention. The initial impression on the palate is a fine and abundant textural feel - sweet and tacky at the tip of the tongue, then broadening and expanding again and again. This textural richness is layered by the plaque and tack of emulsified Cabernet skins plus a tremendously impressive wood component. This bottling is rich, profound on the palate, with immense fruit quality and the Caymus trademark suppleness.
